Because of Dora's birth date of 1886, I have her as d/o Joseph and his m/1,
Rebecca Tait, who may possibly died following complications of pregnancy;
Margaret Ellen Scott being her step-mother. Joseph didn't m/2 Margaret until
18 Jun 1890, 4 years later.

I have Eric Alfred Smith as deceased 20 Aug 1938 in All Saint's Hospital,
Springhill; son, Ottie Smith being the Informant. Appears he remarried after
Dora for a 3rd time as his surviving wife was named, Mrs. Josie Smith.
