NoteThe 1900 census at Odessa Twp., in Ionia County, Michigan, shows George Buckborough as being divorced. Just when George and Edith went their separate ways isn't clear. At some point, however, she married John Cosford Butler. He was a blacksmith and living in Port Dover, Norfolk County, at least in the 1911 census. They are buried together in Port Dover Cemetery and her maiden name isn't given on their gravestone. However, Edith's death registration is clear enough. Edith's death registration indicates that they moved from Port Dover not long after the 1911 census, for she was said to have resided at the place of death, Walpole Township, for 14 years. Certainly, Edith and Cosford were in Walpole at the time of the 1921 census.

Death reg. 014888-24 Walpole Twp., Haldimand Co.
Edith Butler died Walpole December 26, 1924. Born May 6, 1870, in Windham. Age 54 yrs., 7 mos., 20 dys. Resided at place of death 14 years. Parents Marshall Malcolm and Eliza McCurdy, both born Windham. Informant Cosford Butler, husband, R.R. 1, Nanticoke. Place of burial Port Dover, December 29, 1924.

The clue for Edith's second marriage is to be found on daughter Oakel Person's border crossing form at Buffalo in 1915. Her mother's name is mentioned.

The 1911 census showed Oakel as being born in the U.S. and coming to Canada in 1907. It's reasonable that she came to live with her mother.
