Surnames: KEITH, THOM
Searching for information on my grandfather KEITH.
William Currie Ogilvie KEITH b. December 13, 1890 Leggart Cottage, Bridge of Dee Nigg, parish of Nigg, county of Kincardine. He married Isabelle Burleigh THOM - they both immigrated to Canada (did not know each other until they had been in Canada a few years). My grandfather William had a brother named George Dodd (his nickname) KEITH and sister Margaret KEITH. These to also immigrated to Canada. It is said that my grandfather had 18 silblings.

his father was: David KEITH (general labourer)
his mother was: Margaret KEITH (maidan name: GARDEN)
marriage date: November 9th, 1877 St. Nicholas, Aberdeen

I've been told there was a mystery surrounding my grandfathers leaving Scotland. George his brother may have harmed a man and was wanted, so William secured passage on a ship out of Scotland for Canada.

This is all the information I have at the moment, look forward to hearing from anyone you can assist me.

Thanks
Lisa Grossholz
