Narrative

Daniel Scott Dyment appears in the Canadian census records as Daniel, Scott and Dayrel S. He was born February 22, 1878. He married twice, to Mary A. Bell Rayner, who died in 1914 and to Lulu Pearl MacPhee, daughter of Neil MacPhee and Alberta Ramsay.

McArthur source says children with Pearl MacPhee were Priscilla and Lulu Pearl, which is also in the History of Brae, but the family gave the names Betty and Rose.

In the 1911 census, there is a Scott Diamond (b. Feb 1878) living with his wife Mary (b. 1887) and child "Bar. S." (b. March 1909) living in Lot 6. Scott is working as a farm labourer.

One source questioned whether or not Scott married Pearl McPhee, or if it was his son Bert. Divorce wasn't that common, and Bert's wife Agnes Matilda Frank outlived him, so it seems that Pearl was Scott's second wife, given that Daniel Scott's first wife died in 1914 at the age of 29. This was confirmed by information I have that came from an interview with Bert's family conducted by Earle Dyment.

According to his death certificate, Scott Dyment had moved to Halifax 14 years before his death in 1947.
