The handwriting for this registration is that of Wallace McDonald, the township registrar, and it is challenging to read. The place of marriage will have something to do with the United Brethren Church, which was at Sheffield. The bride's family name is also a challenge, but looking at older marriage registrations it is evidently Hawe.

Other records (birth registrations for children of Stephen and Estella) suggest that Stephen's middle name was actually Cushman.)

Dates of death for Stephen and Estella are taken from a transcription of their gravestone in section 6 of Mountview Cemetery in Cambridge/Galt.

Stephen's date of birth, February 27, 1877, is also taken from his gravestone, though his birth registration reads February 25, 1877. His father filed this registration with the township clerk on March 23, 1877. The birth registration is usually correct, but considering other errors of record, Stephen's date of birth as it appears on his gravestone is probably correct. We will note here that a date of birth for Stephen as it appears on the 1901 census is shown as Feb. 27, 1877.
