James Gilmore of Middlebie 1841
« on: Saturday 05 May 18 15:23 BST (UK) »
Hello,
I am trying to find more information on my Gilmore family. I am looking for a John Gilmore born about 1793 & his wife (Mary?) born about 1799. I have found him in the 1861 census in Wentworth Ontario and he is listed as being born in Scotland.
I have also found a James Gilmore (I am presuming James & John are brothers) born 1799 Scotland who married Janet (Robertson). In the 1861 census they had the following children: Thomas b 1837, George b 1839 & Andrew b 1844.

From this information I found them in the 1841 Scotland census living in Middlebie at Netheralbie Cottage. I searched for John Gilmore but did not have any luck. I am hoping that my assumption is correct that they are siblings and someone can find information on John & his wife.

In my line I have John Henry Gilmore born about 1829 & a sister Agnes born about 1828. Parents were John Gilmore & Mary Rainey/Boney ?

Thank you for any information or tips on finding my John Gilmore family.

Donna

Hi Donna

John Senior and wife Mary Rainy (from cert) must have been in Canada by c. 1830? Son John gave Canada as his birth place when he married in 1862.

Monica,

Thank you for your reply. I do have that information. I am hoping that by following James perhaps I can find John Gilmore born 1799 & a wife Mary.

Although the information on the marriage record states he was born in Canada this may or may not be true. Am keeping all possibilities open.

 :)
