I don't think this is the same family. This family lived in Montana . They are William J Bruce , son of William Bruce and Elizabeth Cruickshank , who was born in 1876 in Aberdeen , and Georgina Gray , also from Aberdeen. They married 28 Dec 1909 in Lewistown, Fergus, Montana. The Passport Application says he had been living in Fergus County for 16 years.

William is a tailor.  The family came to Canada in 1912.   This says Herbert E was born in Scotland.

Sorry had a visitor and had to stop for a while - I agree with you Christine - same names but not the correct family. The couple in Montana were married 28 December 1909 Fergus Montana as you said.

I also agree that is a different family. The William had been in Montana United States since 1900 according to his passport application and he was a naturalized US citizen.

Deleted the rest.....I somehow missed RK's post about the census. Apologies RK.

William being a Tailor seems to match the 1901 Scotland census where he is found with parents and siblings.
