Whew! That is a whole lot of names!
1900 census says Lora is a sister, but of course the "in-law" could have been left out. I couldn't find anything to prove she was his actual sister.
Also, I've found that James R. and Lizzie's daughter Alta on the census living with them as married with her husband Eugene Dunbar (1920 Census Framingham, MA). There is a Ruth Dunbar listed as their daughter, but she's only a few years younger than Eugene and Alta. That's something to figure out. I think she should be the sister to Alta.
I'll leave you with all the info you need to check on. If you find anything else you want help with, feel free to send me a private message. Also, you can get vital records for a fee in most towns in MA after 1915. If you're not in MA, you can visit the towns websites and there's usually instructions on how to go about doing that (it's typically snail mail). I'm in MA if you'd rather have someone get them for you, scan them, email them and then mail you the hard copies. It can get expensive as the city or town usually charges $10 (or so) per record.
With the PEI records, you can go to the message boards and request a look-up or a visit to a church etc. People around here are usually really good helping others, especially if they are near where the look-ups need to be done.
I wish this were my family! Ha-ha! I have to cross the ocean for mine, where with this family, I'd only have to drive north, or 20 minutes locally!
