On the Census report for 1900 it indicates his parents were born in Scotland, that he was born 3/1854 in Canada and that he migrated to Michigan in 1881. He married Alice Eugenia Rhodes in Benzie County, Michigan on 7 Jan 1885. The marriage records show he was born 1849 in Townsend, Norfolk Co., Ontario, Canada. The death records show he died 1/3/1906 in Manistee County and he was born 1848 in Canada. That is about all of the info I have been able to uncover. Thank you for checking your records.
