It has been a few years since you posted this message and I hope you are still around. I believe we may have a family link - My great grandmother was Margaret Mathers -
I have not had any luck in finding birth or death information on her, except for marriage date and location. I did locate information on John D. Mathers including Ontario marriage information and 1910- 1920 Ohio census information. Since several of Margaret's children were living with him and listed in the census - I know he was my Great Grandmother's brother. GG Margaret Mathers married August Munro 1879 at Maidstone Crossing, Essex, Ontario - Margaret died shortly after 1900. August Munro and children moved to Northport MI where they lived with his sister Elizabeth. Later 3 of the children moved to Toledo Ohio to live with John D. Mathers. Here is the information I have:
