Hi,

I think this is Alex Mearns on the 1901 Canadian census in Montreal,
Mearns, Alex age 44, b. 1856, Scotland, head, carpenter
Mearns, Maggie age 46, b. 1854 Scotland, wife
Mearns, Alex age 17, b. 1884 Scotland, son
Mearns, James age 15, b. 1885 Scotland, son
Morton, James age 78, b. 1823 Scotland, widow, gr. father

Find A Grave, same cemetery as Alex and Alice,
Mearns, Margaret d. 16 May 1928
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/108938302/margaret-mearns

Obit for Margaret in the Montreal Gazette May 18, 1928, page 7
Mearns, at the residence of her son James Morton Mearns 5970 Jeanne Mance St., Margaret
Morton aged 76, beloved wife of A.I. Mearns Sr. Glasgow papers please copy.

Thank you, that all adds to the picture. So Margaret was a Morton before they married.

Iíve found the marriage on Scotlandís People, 1882, registered in Plantation, Lanarkshire.
