This is possibly Frederick Charles William King-Hall, born in London, England, elder son of the composer Charles King-Hall (1845-1895). He left home at the turn of the century, bound for the Alaskan gold fields. His family in London never heard from him again.
In 1912, an Englishman, Frederick William King-Hall, married 19-year-old Daisy Maude Phillips, in Ada County, Idaho. She, too, was English. This marriage lasted briefly.
In the 1918 draft registration, Frederick was living alone in Boise, Idaho, and working as a mechanic -- an occupation shared by his younger brother, Ernest, in England.
In the 1920 census, a divorced Frederick King-Hall, English by birth, was living in Los Angeles, occupation: violinist.
The 1930 census had him married and living in Long Beach, California, occupation: machinist.
In 1963, a Fred Hall was fatally injured in a hit-and-run accident in Lane County, Oregon. His death certificate gave his name as Fred Kingsley Hall, his place of birth as England, and his parents as "unknown."
It may be that some or none of these facts relate to the young man who sought his fortune in the Yukon. However, it's seems possible they do. For whatever reason, Frederick severed his English ties completely. He never knew that his English sister-in-law and his two nieces emigrated from London in the 1950s and lived in Kansas City, Missouri.
