In search mode for McVinnie information. I assume J. or James McVinnie is linked to McVinnie Reservoir in Lethridge. First evidence of the name in Canada shows up in the immigration of John McVinnie into Quebec in 1867. I don't have access to the reference book by Donald Whyte, Dictionary of Scottish Emmigrants, Version 1 or 2. There are also McVinnie's listed in the 1863 tax rolls in the Apalacon township in Susquehanna Co, Pennsylvania and Cemetary Stones dating to 1832.
