According to her death certificate her parents were Jonathan Cail, born in Pine Ridge, NB. Mother is listed as "Mary (not obtainable" born in Pine ridge NB.
My grandmother is still alive and this is the information that she has given family several years ago.

"on the Wilson/Tait side - Thomas David Wilson dob May 10,1902 Maine River, Kent Co. N.B his parents were James Henry Wilson DOB 1869, Harcourt, Kent Co. N.B. - Mina Cail DOB 1876 Mill Branch, Kent Co. N.B. there parents were Henry Wilson DOB 1842 and his wife Agnus 1840; Mina's parents were John Cail 1829 Welford, Kent Co. N.B. and his wife was Mary Cail born 1844 Mill Branch, Kent Co. N.B. John's parents were Anthony Cail born 1800 died Oct 14, 1886 his wife was Mary MacDougal born about 1806 at Mill Branch, Kent Co, N. B. died Feb 10, 1874 Anthony's parents were Anthony Cail born Oct. 1752 in Westmorland, England and died 11 April 1844 at Mill Branch, Kent Co, N.B. his wife was Christable born 1754 in Westmorland, England and died at Mill Branch, N.B."

From this information I have however found that James Wilson was not born in 1869 but in 1872. Died in 1968.

My gr grandfather Thomas David Wilson (1902-1976) is buried in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Cumberland, NS. He married Lois Christina Tait in 1922 in Oxford, NS. They lived that area for 50 years. When Lois died he was heart broken and moved to St. Catherines with a daughter. He missed NS so moved to Mount Pleasant where he died.

According to the Provincial Archives a Mina Isabelle Wilson 1883-1951. is buried beside husband James Wilson 1872-1968. The death certificate I have is correct stating Mina's dates as this. I was fortunate enough to have a volunteer from RAGK go and take pictures at St. Matthews Anglican Cemetery in Harcourt. There is a family plot with many of their children and grand children buried there. I have the tombstones posted on Ancestry but have not done so with Mina's death certificate. Here is the info for that:
