     John Morley Gerrard was born on 10 May 1901 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 He was the son of John Wells Gerrard and Alta Main.1 He married Marjorie L. Scadding on 21 April 1924 at Galt, Waterloo County, Ontario. (notes: 020243-24 Galt, Waterloo Co. Morley Gerrard, bachelor, age 22, occupation 'Bell Telephone'. Methodist.

It shows that he was born on 10 May 1901 and that his parents were Alta Main and John Gerrard. The only page header available shows the birth to be in Wentworth County, but the handwriting is unmistakably that of Wallace McDonald, clerk of the township of Beverly, so it is safe to say that he was born in Beverly Twp.

Death information for Morley is taken from his stone at section 8 at Mountview Cemetery in Galt. Marjorie's birth year was cut on the stone at the time of transcription, but not her death year.1
