Name of creator
Felice Angelozzi (Felix Battle), 1892-1982, was born in Forcella, Italy. He emigrated to the USA in 1911. From there he went to stay with relatives, Charles and Sam (Angelozzi) Battel in St. Catharines, Ontario. While staying with his relatives he adopted the surname "Battle" in an effort to avoid the prejudice and discrimination that plagued Italian immigrants in Canada. He legally changed his surname in 1928. After nine months in St. Catharines he travelled to Hillcrest, Alberta where he was employed by the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR). He left Hillcrest shortly after the mine disaster and moved to Calgary where he worked for the City, laying street-car tracks. He then moved to Delia where his brother, Gaetano ("John" Battle) was living, and purchased a homestead there in 1913. He married Irene Maud Crossley in 1918 in Calgary. Irene, 1902- , was born in Wellingborough, England. Irene and Felice had eight children, Lester Willard, 1919- , Evelyn Hazel (Dickie), 1921- , Helen Marie (Wilson), 1922- , Alma Phyllis (Keenan), 1925- , Geneva Elvira (Seagrave), 1929- , Jesse Felix, 1927- , Wayne John, 1938- , and Gloria Irene Angelozzi (Johnson), 1940- . Felice and Irene lived in Delia until 1963 when they sold the farm and moved to Calgary. A year later they moved to Carstairs. Gaetano, ?-1982, came to Canada in 1903. He also worked at Hillcrest Mine and in 1909 purchased a homestead in Delia. In 1913 Gaetano married Faye Friedley, ?-1926. They had four children, John, Robert, Irene and Louise. Gaetano's second marriage in 1933 was to Catherine Saraceni, ?-1986. Catherine was born in Italy and was related to the Marshall (Maschiangelo) family of Delia. Gaetano and Catherine had two children, Margaret Rose and James Donald.
