And then his 2nd marriage:

And then here's what appears to be your Mary Croucher:

1901 Census of Canada
about Mary Croucher

Gender:        Female
Marital Status:        Single
Age:        13

Racial or Tribal Origin:        English
Nationality:        Canadian
Religion:        Presbyterian

Name        Age
Mary A Hood        57 -widow- b. 14 Mar 1844 Ontario; farmer
Mary Croucher        13 b. 14 Feb 1888 Ontario; domestic

Unfortunately, there is no Mary Croucher b. 1888, and no birth record, only a Mattie, b. 1887. The family did appear to split up prior to 1901.

Hope this helps. Annie
