      John J Regan was born on 19 August 1863 at South Crosby Twp, Leeds & Grenville County, Ontario.1 He was the son of John Regan and Mary Hamilton.2 He married Mary Ann Burns (Byrne) on 27 January 1894 at St Edward the Confessor Church, Westport, Leeds & Grenville County, Ontario.3 He died on 27 April 1945 at Elgin, Leeds & Grenville County, Ontario, at age 81.4 He was buried at St Columbanus Cemetery, Elgin, Leeds & Grenville County, Ontario.4

Research Note: The 1871 (age 7), 1881 (age 16), & 1891 (age 27) censuses as well as John’s marriage record (age 30) would all indicate that he was probably born in 1863.
The only actual date I’ve found for John’s birth is in the 1901 census which clearly reads 19 Aug 1866. The 1911 census also says Aug 1866.
John was born prior to birth registration in Ontario.
I have not been able to find a baptism record for him – I’ve read the entire set of registers from St Edward’s in Westport which is where several of his siblings were baptized and where he was married, as well as other area churches without success.
1863 would be a better fit with the sequence of children’s births.
