Father Matthew Reid, born Glasgow Scotland
Mother Jean Mortimer Scott, born Aberdeen, Scotland
Cause of death - long tedious labour, 36 hours
immediate cause - heart failure, two days
under physicians name it shows certified by Mrs. Scott so that may be mother of Jean and maybe she did not know where Mattew had actually been born ?

**************************

I could not find Mathew/Matthew and family in 1911 census - they should be there and I tried using first names only and also last name only but nothing came up.

I looked to see if there were any trees for this family on ancestry.com

There are a few with very little info, but one shows daughter Lillian Elizabeth as married to Charles Cannon. Lillian is shown as dying July 8, 1997 Waterdown, ON

Matthew is shown as dying March 11, 1970 Hamilton ON and Jean as dying August 1959 Hamilton, ON
They have her listed as Jean Morimer

It says her father Charles died March 19, 1937 in Alberta and mother Ann died April 10, 1927 Alberta
