FatherEzra Anson Healy (1839-1906)
MotherMartha Southworth (1843-1878)
BirthAlexander Shaw Healy was born on 4 October 1870. 
MarriageHe married Kathleen Margaret Brundrit on 6 July 1897 at Winnipeg, Manitoba.
A Manitoba Vital Statistics index shows the marriage between Alexander Shaw Healy and Kathleen Margaret Brundrit on 6 July 1897 at Winnipeg. Index number 1897-001075.
DeathHe died on 23 March 1945 at Los Angeles at age 74. 
NoteThe 1871 census at Brant Township in Bruce County shows his name as Jackson, age 6 months. The 1881 census at Walkerton shows us with Alex, age 10. It does appear that Alexander is correct and a California death index shows his full name as Alexander Shaw Healy. This also shows his dates of birth and death, his parents surnames, and locates his death in Los Angeles in 1945.

Considering that the 1871 census was begun on April 2nd, and that 'Jackson's' age is given as 6 months, the child shown as Jackson must have been Alexander and what we are left with is an enumerator's error.

The death index for Alexander shows his middle name as Shaw and his name as it appears on the faded 1881 Walkerton census page could be interpreted as Alex S. Since the death index shows his parents as Southworth and Healy, we are in no doubt as to his place in the family.
