Hi Steve,
The RI Genealogical Society has been working on a book of the Irons family of RI.
Here is what appears in the 1st. draft:
Sidney Smith Irons, birth date unknown; m. Jennie Ray Short, b. 20 March 1870 - d. 13 Dec. 1938 Warwick, Kent Co., RI, buried in the North Burial Ground, Providence, RI.
1. Alice Evelyn, b. 4 Jan. 1892 Prov (RIB92:160)
2. Maude Moretta, b. 5 Oct. 1893 Prov. (RI Dept. of Health:
Delayed Birth Rec'ds. 1846-1898, Filed 1943 File #1794)
3. Courtland P., b. 9 Oct. 1894 Cranston, RI
4. Margaret Hellen, b. 3 Apr. 1896 prov. (RIB96:188)
5. Sidney H., b. 28 Dec. 1896 - d. 15 Nov. 1901 Cranston,
RI, at 4 yrs. of age. (RID1901:29)bur. No. Burial Grd.
6. _____, b. 28 Dec. 1897 Cranston (RIB97:043)
7. Lena Irene, b. 9 Feb. 1899 Cranston - d. 15 Aug. 1899
Cranston, RI (RID99:638) (RID99:772)
8. Roy, b. 30 May 1900 Cranston (RIB1900:016)
9. Lillie M., b. 11 Sept. 1901 - d. 11 Apr. 1902 Cranston
10. Sidney S., b. 23 Dec. 1904 - d. 5 Feb. 1905 Cranston
12. Milton L., b. 1 Nov. 1907 - d. 25 Nov. 1907 Cranston
(RID1907:37)buried No. Burial Ground, Providence, RI.

Courtland P. Irons, b. 9 Oct. 1894 Cranston - d. 1948, buried Pocasset Cem., Cranston, RI; m. 14 June 1917 Providence, RI, Emma M. Steinhauer, b. 24 Oct. 1897 - d. Aug. 1981, buried Pocasset Cem.
1. Virginia Emma, b. 13 May 1918 - d. 27 Aug. 1918 Cranston
(RID1918:58) bur. Pocasset Cem.

How sure are you that Sidney Irons was b. in Nova Scotia there is a Ernest N. Iron who was b. in 1870 in St. Johns, New Brunswick, Canada. Most of the Irons living in RI had ancestors who had been there for generations only a few were from Canada.

There is a
Sidney H. Irons, birth date unknown who d. 1905 buried Locust Grove Cem., Prov., RI.

Sidney S. Irons, d. 1949 bur. Locust Grove Cem.

Hope this helps.
