John Roderick McKenzie & Mary Alena Smith
« on: Wednesday 17 May 17 19:41 BST (UK) »
Trying to locate the marriage details for John Roderick Mckenzie 1851-1931 & Mary Alena Smith 1858-1936. It seems there first child Mary A was born 1879 Sherbrook, Quebec along with 3 other children . The family were then in Montana USA by 1890.

John was born Stornoway Scotland and died Montana and his death certificate shows parents as Roderick & Margeret Mckenzie. Mary died Montana and certificate shows parents as Allan Smith & Margaret Graham. Also Mary Alena's death certificate also shows she was born Hampden Quebec, so I am assuming the marriage was in Quebec?

I have located most details for them, but cannot seem to locate the marriage details, so if anyone could help I would be grateful.

Also on the marriage entry, John was a baggage master with the GTR (Grand Trunk Railway).

Daughter, Mary Helena, was born 25 August 1879, and baptized in the Presbyterian Church in Sherbrooke on September 13, 1880.

Son, Allan Smith McKenzie, was born 16 December 1886, baptized in the same church on March 31, 1887.  By that time, John is noted as a clerk.

Son, John Murdoch McKenzie, was born 31st(?) day of September (even tho' September only has 30 days!), 1889, and baptized 16 April 1890 in the same church.

I would note that there is a Murdoch McKenzie baptizing children in the same timeframe in the same church, and may be related.

1881 Census shows John aged about 30, so born about 1851 in Scotland.

Many thanks to. Along with other help on a second post regarding John Roderick Mckenzie and his family.  I'm sure I have the right family links.
