I am trying to find anything on my great great grandfather John Taylor Brown. He was of Scottish decent, but was born in France. This is something I don't understand, but I've been given this by other family members. I'm trying to confirm that he was born in France, and I am also trying to determine how he got into Canada. He lived for quite some time in Alberta, and died in Ponoka in Nov. 1920 on the 14th. He married Mary Ann Kellas, and they lived in the Dakota's. John was a blacksmith by trade. I also see a border crossing in 1915 with a final destination of Thief River Falls where my great grandparents were living in Minnesota.
