The informant was George Franklin Husband and he has given the name of his own parents rather than the names of his mother's parents.

Apparently, Mary died at the residence of her son, Franklin. The 1911 census shows Mary with her children living in Oakville. Also with her is her mother, shown as Rebecca Curtis, age 71.

Mary's mother's death registration makes it clear that her given names were Rebecca Jane. She died February 5, 1919, in Oakville. Rebecca's mother's name is fairly legible on the registration and appears to be Nancy McCubbin. Her father's last name was Lucas. His first name is not written legibly, but Rebecca's marriage registration shows his given name as William.
