     Oran Main was born on 12 November 1872 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 He was the son of George Main and Clarissa Coleman.1 He married Eliza Maria Gerrard on 29 October 1902 at Sheffield, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario. (notes: 18086-02 Oran MAIN, 32, farmer, Beverly, same, s/o George MAIN & Clarissa COLEMAN, married Eliza GERRARD, 30, Beverly, same, d/o John Gerrard & Maria Grummett, witn: John Grummett Jr. & Elta MAIN, both of Beverly, 29 Oct. 1902 at New Sheffield

The handwriting of Beverly Township clerk, Wallace McDonald, is difficult in his later years. The above registration is mainly illegible and is only decipherable based on noting Oran's burial record at Sheffield and the name of his wife in the transcription. It is only with some familiarity with other family records that Elta's name is decipherable. John Grummett Jr.'s surname is likely correct, but this is very difficult to read.).1
He died in 1955.1 He was buried at Sheffield Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1
