Some notes on the above registration. Betimes, Ancestry and Familysearch are useful alternative sources to each other when it comes to the indexing and readability of images. With Ellen's death registration, the image as presented by Ancestry is badly faded and almost unreadable. Familysearch must have adjusted brightness and contrast on their microfilm readers, for they present a very readable image.

Still, even with this, Lawrason family information dates Ellen's death to 21 December 1889. Delores MacIntyre, in her work Some Records of the Lawrason Family, 2000, tells something of the story. Mrs. MacIntyre is a great grand daughter of George and she has some notes from James Lawrason, George's son. James states that Ellen died 21 December, 1889, and Mrs. MacIntyre notes that the Huron Expositor of 27 December, 1889, tells of her death and prolonged illness. With this, we must believe that the earlier date is correct.

The only other comment relating to Ellen's death is that family descendants believe Ellen to be buried in Bayfield Cemetery, though no place of burial has been found.

George, the infant son of Ellen and George, is buried in Egmondville Cemetery. Of course, Ellen's maiden name is Lake and it's interesting to note that young George is buried next to Elizabeth Lake, wife of Joseph Lake, died 4 Feb 1868, age 25 yrs., 6 m. and Joseph Lake, d. 16 Apr. 1860, age 68 years. A native of Sugart, Nottinghamshire, England. It's probable that they are Ellen's parents.
