Mary's marriage registration and her death registration place her birth in Port Robinson. This is probably correct, or at least approximately correct. Port Robinson is in Thorold Township wherein her birth was recorded. Mary and her family have been sought in census information before and after the 1871 census, but not found.

Mary's date of birth appears as June 9, 1870, both on her death registration and on her gravestone in St. Andrew's Presbyterian Cemetery, in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Her birth registration, however, dates her birth to the 3rd. Her father, William King, filed the record with the township registrar on June 10th. Had the birth been the previous day, it seems reasonable that the registration would record the fact.
