Event Note

1901 Census of Canada lists birth as 19 Sept 1890 - age 10. 1891 Census says he is 6 months old. Lena does a late registration in 1937 (see next entry) which lists his birth year as 1898. By this time she is 74, so may have lost the year or may have other reason - a mystery. Note: the late registration changes spelling to MacBeth. - SJL
