Oops, sorry MaureeninNY.... I completely missed that post about the 1871 census.

I did notice in that 1871 census that Isabella was apparently born in Quebec so I was wondering if John and Ann might have been there on the 1852 census but don't see them at the moment.

SORRY MO. I must have mis-read.  :) Just making general comment really...........
The 1865 - 1922 Canadian passenger lists don't give anywhere for a name or surname ...or do they ?

Thought we might have had a chance of finding that birth for Isabella in Quebec but I never turned up anything.

No problem,PB!!

They are tricky!

I do wonder how long John and Ann* were married (as in- when/where).

Best,
Maureen

Nothing on my part.

Even a hint on the Drouin Collection-maybe a Leg*t. ::)

Long - shot - Could this be a possibility for Annie -    Ann Orrick Leggat

Birth Date 11 Jan 1824 Banff, Banff, Scotland (the birth date on death cert was 1 Jan 1826 Inverness - or is that to far from Inverness ?)

Father George Leggat - Mother Isobel Henry.

1851 Census  Beauharnois County

Ann Leggett born 1825 Scotland.

also a Thomas Leggett born 1823 Scotland living same area,

Sandra

Might be a few births to same couple - George Leggett and Isobel Hendry. (Interesting if first born daughter was Isabella ?)

http://www.rootschat.com/links/01qn8/

also a George Leggatt - 65 years - Beauharnois County
Isabella Hendry - 68 years - Beauharnois County
Thomas Leggett 23 years - Beauharnois County

If Thomas on that 1851 was a brother - marriage of Thomas Leggitt 23 December 1862 Perth Ontario.
Parents George Leggitt and Isabella.

Some of the Aiken births were Mitchell Perth County which is another coincidence

FIND A GRAVE

Knox Presbyterian Cemetery Mitchell, Perth County, Ontario.
