Narrative

On his death certificate, he was a widower and had been receiving a pension from the Dominion Coal Company, having worked as an overman. His middle name was "Swabe", possibly from Swabey, a popular name in PEI at the time of his birth (after a Prince County minister).

James S. McDougall married Minnie A. Grant (b. 1885) on 3 Sep 1904 in Pictou, Nova Scotia. On his death certificate her name was given as Mary Agnes. Information on the form was provided by his son-in-law, John Bennett.
