It sounds as though we are related also. James Bankhead Speirs, born Cape Breton Island in 1834, is my GGrandfather. His son John Emmet Speirs, born 1885, is my grandfather. John married Daisy Queen. Both sides are from the area in and around Weston. If you have any information on James Speirs and Janet/Janette Bankhead I'd love to hear it. I've found James almost impossible to track back to Scotland, though I know he and Janet were married in Glascow. What fun to find you here!
