May Landreth Fairgrieve died at 74 Blair Rd. Galt on December 30th, 1925. Widow. Age 59. Born Ontario on Feb. 18th (year not given). Parents James Landreth and Annie Cairns, both born Scotland. Physician Dr. J. S. Wardlaw, Galt. Informant Mrs. James MacRae, 74 Blair Rd. Galt, sister. Burial Galt, December 31st, 1925.

The gravestone in section 6, Mountview Cemetery, dates Mary's death to 28th December, 1925. Death registrations are usually the more accurate, but not always. Mary's death is shown on this tree as it is shown on her gravestone.

Mary's place of birth as shown on her marriage registration appears to be Hopeville. The handwriting of the Galt registrar is difficult to read, but this is the best that might be made of it. There are two Hopevilles shown in Floreen Carter's 1986 work Ghost & Post Offices of Ontario, one in Grey County and one in Durham County. The difficulty with this is that the Landreths were in North Dumfries Township from at least the 1851 census. Hopeville, or whatever was actually intended, may have been a locale in North Dumfries.
