John Roderick McKenzie
« on: Thursday 18 May 17 15:23 BST (UK) »
I am looking for info for John Roderick Mckenzie. He emigrated and married in Quebec Canada 1878 and died in Montana USA 1931. His death certificate shows his birth as June 1851 Back Stornoway Scotland, and parents as Roderick & Margaret Mckenzie of Scotland. Anything on John's birth or his parents in Scotland would be helpful.

I have just found a link for a Roderick, born 1815 & Margaret Mckenzie? on the Stornoway Ross & Cromarty 1861 census. Any help  to confirm would be helpful

Gotta love all these Roderick Mackenzies.  I think everyone has at least one in their tree!

Fortunately my ancestral Roderick MacKenzie died in London so he is easier to pick out but I'm still not sure exactly were he was from.

For a few credits on Scotland people these are the Catherine MacKenzies whose births were registered at Stornoway between 1857 and 1860, one of whom is potentially the two year old on the 1861 census.

I think from the info. from Carole on 1851 & 1861 it's probably the correct person but a look at the 1871 & then has he disappeared on the 1881 would confirm that possibility?

I can see a likely family in 1871 at Back but John isn't with them.

Roderick   MacKenzie   Head   Married   Male   60   
Mary   MacKenzie   Wife   Married   Female   55   
Murdo   MacKenzie   Son   Unmarried   Male   30
Marion   MacKenzie   Daughter   Unmarried   Female   24   
Christiana   MacKenzie   Daughter   Unmarried   Female   16
Annie   MacKenzie   Mother   Widow   Female   23   (transcription error with her age?)
Catherine   MacKenzie   -   -   Female   10   
Mary   MacKenzie   Daughter   -   Female   7   

Does his marriage record in Quebec include the name of his mother?

At Gress Farm?
John   MacKenzie   Servant   Unmarried   Male   19   1852   Farm Labourer

Unfortunately his 4 December 1878  Sherbrooke Quebec marriage record does not include parent details. His death certificate shows parents as Roderick & Margeret from Scotland. So I can see the problem with Mary/Margaret on the census details?

Does the 1851 census definitely say 9 months for John. Becouse his death certificate gives birth as June 1851.
