Marriage certificate of Mary and Alexander lists their parents.

Source: 1901 Canadian Census of Ontario, District 131, York West shows Alex Mark and Mary Morgan living in Ontario and does not list year of emigration. However, the 1911 census shows us their son Arthur and says emigration was in 1885 making last son William born, in Canada and family stories true that he was the only child born in Canada of this couple.

Alexander died April 22, 1904 age of 66 and Mary died January 16, 1931 age of 85. They are buried in the Prospect Cemetery in Toronto, ON., Section 10, Lot/Grave 58. Buried in same lot with Alex and Mary are an Alexander E Mark and a Jessie E Hill. We believe this is Jessie, daughter married a Hill and Alex E is either our second Alex J with middle initial J being incorrect on census records or it is Elizabeth Alexandromina and cemetery erred on Genealogical Form. Next of kin listed on Mary’s death record is W. Mark, her son William. Funeral parlor up to 1957 was York Bros. and then became Turner and Porter. Service for Mary was provided by Rev. M.
