Phyllis Mae Seldon married Frank Clayton and had children Edmund Owen and Wayne Marvin. Phyllis also married Henry Bernard French 1908-1971 and had children Estelle Anne and Edmund Owen. Unfortunately I have no dates for Frank Clayton, Phyllis Mae or children Estelle, Edmund or Wayne. Phyllis's father Nelson 1873-1969 born Nova Scotia.
Thanks

I don't think Canadian BMD's are as readily available as those for the UK

How is it that you know the names of Phyllis's children and yet are unaware of their birth years?

This is a late rego (1/8/1950) by his bro Roland, and uses the family bible as evidence, and its examination by the county JP]

One finds a lot of late rego's in NS - the province almost went bankrupt, so they shut down rego'ing Bs & Ds for a couple of decades.

Owen Seldon, died 1923 in Liverpool, Queens County
