ID # 356, (1874-)
FatherSidney B. Lawrason (1845-1917)
MotherMelissa Harriet Coleman (1847-1910)
BirthArchie S. Lawrason was born on 15 February 1874 at South Dumfries Township, Brant County, Ontario. 
NoteBirth reg. 003926-74 Archy Lawrason, son of Sidney B. Lawrason, farmer, and Malissa Coleman.

Archie is with his brother Frederick working as a dentist in the 1910U.S. census at Scranton, Pennsylvania.

This is just a notion, but I believe that Archie made it into the Canadian 1901 census twice. He appears with his family in Wentworth and Brant, likely at St. George, as Archie S. Lawrason, with his birthdate as February 15, 1875, and working as a 'Farmer's son'. There is also an Archie S. Lawrason at Vancouver with a birthdate of February 15, 1874. There, he's working as a grocer. The census taken at his parents home was done, according to the enumerator, between the 15th and 16th of April. The Vancouver census page was taken on the 11th of April. This would seem to be pushing it for the travel available of the day, unless one of the dates is a fudge. It seems odd that they were both born on the same day with only the year being off. He's a lodger in Vancouver and the year could be in error. One of those mysteries.
