Looking for the husband's given name and a death date, i.e. obituary for Mary Ardellas (Argellis) Lincoln living in Plymouth Co., MA circa 1934.
The supporting proof for a Province of Nova Scotia Application For Registration Of Birth is a copy of Certificate of Baptism for Mary Argellis (Ardellas) Ward, sic.
The Baptism Certificate for the Diocese of Nova Scotia, dated December 11th, 1934 states the child's name as "Mary Argellis (Ardellas) Ward". Date of birth is October 1863 and a date of Baptism is "Jan. 12. /64". Her parents are James Edward and Catherine Amelia Ward. James Edward additionally described as a shoemaker and his abode is Beech Hill. The particulars of the Baptism Certificate are a true extract from the "Registry of Baptisms kept in Wolfville, N.S. The Baptism Certificate witnessed and signed on December 11, 1934 by Geo. R. Ernest, Rectn. of H. John's, Wolfville, N.S.
The accompanying Province of Nova Scotia Application For Registration Of Birth gives the child's name as "Mary Ardellas Ward". According o the information contained in this second document, Mary is born October 6, 1863 in North Alton, Kings County, Nova Scotia. James Edward Ward and the mother's maiden name Catherine Amelia Walker are the stated parents. James Edward Ward was born in North Alton and the present address section states that he "Died in 1911, same abode, then called Beech Hill". The occupation of the father, at the time of the child's birth, is a shoemaker and farmer. James Edward Ward is once again, stated as being born in North Alton and is of the English race. The physician for the birth is "Do not know, perhaps (Midwife)". The signature of applicant for this birth registration document is Mary Ardellas Lincoln and her hand written residense is interpreted here as being Union Street, Duxbury, Massachusetts on December 3,1934.
