Neil Murray??
« on: Wednesday 28 February 18 16:43 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I'm a Canadian trying to track down my 2nd great-grandfather, who immigrated to Bruce, Ontario, possibly in 1865. He was born in 1844 and went by Neil Murray. He lists his parents as Alexander and Bella, and says he came from Rosshire on his marriage certificate. (2nd marriage, though I can't find any trace of a first).
I have not been able to turn up anything on him or his parents except this marriage certificate and a possible ship's log.

Does anyone have any clues? I would be so grateful!

-Catherine
