 :) :)

I'm still not sure. How did young George manage to be on 2 census records in 1881? I know it happens but can anyone see an incoming record for him?

Family in 1871?
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M47D-3N5

Can't find a death record for the father (John).

Oh well..just dotting and crossing.

I wondered about that too, though I have come across people before who were in two places in the same census.

Suppose he was actually in Scotland, but perhaps by the time the Canadian census form was completed he had returned home and whoever completed the return forgot that he hadn't been there on the census date? Or vice versa? How soon after the census date would the information have been collected?

Assuming I have found the correct George...

George L Aiken appears to give his birthplace as the United States on several censuses and Ogdensburg (which I believe is in upper New York State) on his marriage to Mary Jane.

This makes me wonder if his parents might have died in New York State?
