A Brother Buried

Cousin George always bullied
younger brother, cousin Alfred
yet remained their autocratic
father’s favourite son.

Young George worked for
government in Samoa
before WW II, a promising
young professional fellow.

Years later after Alfred’s sudden
death his descendants explored
their family history. George
was not found in the foreign
service or public records.

Alfred said George died in
1940 but at last they found
his death notice for 1947.

Now they seek his
place of burial
of residence and work,
means of support.
Had he a wife ?
children ?

For alfred only told an
erroneous date of death.
He truly buried his brother.
