Sheila, Thanks for replying to my post. Elizabeth, d/o of John and Margaret(Lowrie)Douglas is my great grand aunt. Her brother, John, is my great grandfather. Apparently, Elizabeth (Lizzie)had two illegitimate children with Duncan Stewart of Horton. Since my post I have learned that they were the Mary and Donald mentioned in that posting. Their names were Isabella (b abt 1860) and Duncan Stewart (b abt 1862). The 1861 census has Isabella as age one while the 1871 has her age ten and Duncan age four. The 1881 census had them as Mary and Donald. Lizzie is present in all three census. Year of immigration is still a puzzle; 1841 Scotland, no 1851 (possibly Bristol, Que as two kids born there), 1861 Horton, and 1871 on in Griffith and Matawatchan so after 1841, but no info or definite location in Que. Had her in 1911 census and her death info. Thanks for contacting me and sharing. Larry Douglas
