|Note||Donald A. McKenzie in volume 5 of his work Obituaries from the Christian Guardian, Global Heritage Pres, 2011, quotes a brief death notice from the April 14, 1886, edition of the paper. This provides Elizabeth's (Lizzie's) middle name Stevenson. She is shown as the daughter of Robert Hay of Maryborough and the sister of Mrs. W. S. Garroch of Listowel and of S. M. Hay, M.D., of Toronto. This dates her death to April 6th and this agrees with the transcription of her gravestone in Hollen Burying Ground.|
