Unfortunately there is much more that I DON'T know than do - haven't found exact immigration date - was here to marry Jessie Thomson Oct. 17, 1862 in Turnberry Township, Huron Cty, Ontario. I believe emmigrated 1859 - 1861. I borrowed the LDS film for William Moffatt b. Stirling Cty, Polmont Parish hoping he was mine but that William's birth date Mar. 9, 1828. I wish Wm. Moffat was a less common name!!I also seem to remember that William died in Scotland??
His parents names were also James Moffat and Elizabeth Thomson, my William lists father's name as James (Moffat) and mother Elizabeth on his marriage certificate. The common names sure don't help.
There is a photo in my collection that says "With compliments Robert Moffat" - was he a brother, cousin....?
MY William named his sons James and Walter.... family names? Whose side?! He married Jessie Thomson and I have had some luck with her side (mother's maiden name Porteous) but just can't figure out where in Scotland he came from!!!
There is another William Moffat born in Symington, Lanarkshire, but he is 20 in the 1851 census, so too young? Parents are James and Elizabeth...this is making me crazy!! :-)
