Could your dob's be out a bit?  There is a possible death for Mary Jane in York County in 1898, but estimated dob is 1866  :-\

ADDED: If this is his second marriage then his dob is given as 1869, which would make the above more likely.

previous post on the Burnie family

1891 census Alexander is with wife Mary
1894 marriage to Elizabeth
1913 marriage to Ada (nee Dixon)
1926 Ada's marriage to Donald Carpentier

At least it gives you a timeframe for each relationship.

Previous suggestion to check FamilySearch Ontario Roman Catholic records.  You have to browse through them but if Alexander remained Catholic his death might be found in those records.

If Edward Alexander remarried in 1894 to Elizabeth Johnston, chances are his first wife Mary had died (presuming divorce was quite expensive then) You would be looking for a death somewhere between the 1891 census and 6th August 1894.

Elizabeth Burney, d/o Joseph Castor and Clara Vanleuven, had married under the surname Johnston in 1894.  Her death in Uxbridge was May 19, 1913 at age 51.  Alex Burney of Uxbridge informant.  2nd section of the death registration refers to her as Mary Elizabeth.  Alex remarried for the 3rd time quickly - perhaps he married Elizabeth in the same short timeframe after his first wife's death.
