"While taking down the ceiling in our house, C. found a wallet full of treasures. Anyone know a William Mollon, born June 19th, 1933, from Sydney, Nova Scotia? He took the train from Sydney to Port Credit in June of 1956."

I just searched Bill Mollon and this contact info just came up. It is still the same address as listed on the documents. The person with the wallet should give him a call and see if this is the owner.
