NoteAlbia's given name gets a bit mangled in the records. A death registration has not been found for James Brown. She then married Joseph Orley in 1905 and the 1911 census indicates that Joseph had at least two children by his first wife. Later direct records for the Orleys have not been found, but Albia's mother, Ellen Kellestine Vrooman, died in 1926, and at some point thereafter, according to the inscription on the gravestone, it was Mrs. J. Orley who had it installed.

A Guy Milton Brown was born to James Brown and Albia Vrooman on February 26, 1902, but he is not present with them in the 1911 census and a death registration for him has not been found.

Mrs. Albe Orley, widow, Emsdale, appears in the 1958 voters' list for Parry Sound-Muskoka.
