Oscar's mother was beyond question Jane Eliza. This is based on census information. He also had older siblings who identified their mother as Jane. At a guess, the township clerk had a problem with the clergyman's handwriting.

The marriage registration is dated November of 1875, but the township clerk did not return the registration until 15 January, 1876. This registration will be found under the year 1876 in the database of the Archives of Ontario.
DeathShe died on 17 March 1920 at Barton Township, Wentworth Co., at age 63. 
BurialShe was buried on 20 March 1920 at Hamilton Cemetery, Hamilton, Ontario. 
NoteCecilia's date of birth is taken in part from her death registration and in part from the 1901 census, which is partially obscured so far as the Hendershot family is concerned. May 6, 1856, may be taken as reasonably correct.
