Classification: Biography
Surnames: MCPHEE, MCMILLAN
I have shown all info as found - old/older records are, oftentimes, very difficult to read so, one has to be a tad "open" to spelling variations etc by the transcriber/s


1. Archives of ontario, as stated

2.Ditto - Archives of Ontario; Series: MS932_108; Reel: 108.

no, there is no way to correct it - the original states the same - again, something to note, in "Catholic" records, the persons name is often the name they were baptised with (not the name they are known as) i.e. Mary would usually be Maria... etc

3...

4. I ran out of time; there are 55 people named Mcphee in Lochiel in the 1861 census.. with Marjery there are (in order going down

JOHN 34
MARGERY 24
DUNCAN 4
CHRISTY 2
MARY 1
ALL SHOWN AS R.C.

5. The "man or Head" of the household would have answered this & (as for many generations) what he was/said was what was entered

you have to bear in mind, that these were very different times - a woman had no rights & once married, was basically, the husbands "property" - she would not have had any say in matters
