Looking for Great Grandparents, James Gordon b:April 14th,
1820, Scotland, married Elizabeth Jane [?] b:Sept.16th, 1839
Quebec, about 1860. Both were Presbyterians. They may have had 4 boys and 1 girl born in Quebec. The girls name was Mary, b:1863 {this is a certainty}. The family moved to Ont.
in 1864 or early 1865 where 2 more girls and 4 boys were born. I have all of the Ontario information, should anyone require it. I believe that James was the son of John and Margaret[Robertson] Gordon of Aberdeen, Scotland. Any info. on Elizabeth Jane and children, greatly appreciated. Thanx

James Gordon is my Great Great Grandfather: William John Gordon's son Richmond is my maternal grandfather. I am looking into this part of the family now, trying to find marriage and birth records from the Quebec years.

I am pretty certain that Elizabeth Jane's last name is Morgan, and that her parents came to Quebec from Ireland. Her death certificate lacks her parents' names, which is unusual and disappointing!

All my info is in my Smith Gordon Tree.
