There's a write-up about the Charles Donald Ego (6th and youngest child of Andrew and Mary Jane Langman Ego of Virginia, Ontario in the Neepawa heritage book. I can transcribe it for you if you like. I did some research on their daughter Minnie for another researcher a while back.
The article I mentions that Andrew was a Scot from the Parish of Crathie in Aberdeenshire, while Mary Jane came from a large Anglo-Irish family near Orillia.

Later it mentions Jack Ego had arrived in Manitoba with his wife Lucy and three small children sometime after 1901 and farmed south of Franklin in the Gordon District. Lucy died in 1906, about a year after the birth of her youngest son, Roy, and Jack's sister Charlotte came out to keep house and look after the children. After her marriage to William Shirritt in 1907, Jack left the farm and eventually settled in Alberta. Another brother, William Ego, lived for a time in Neepawa with his wife Maggie and newhew Roy, but he returned to Ontario to the old home farm at Virginia and remained there.
