"Ontario Deaths, 1869-1938 and Overseas Deaths, 1939-1947," indexed database and digital image, (http:// : accessed 22 January 2014), 1907, Norfolk County, Windham division, no page number, No. 30 (penned), No. 21135 (stamped), Alexander Soverns entry. has this record with images, but FamilySearch does not.  However, FamilySearch indexed it correctly as "Sovereen."  The surname spelling is very clear to me, but I'm familiar with the spelling variations for this surname.  

Alexander Sovereen (1814-1907) is my third great-grandfather.
