1871 census

Can you tell me if there is a section of the 1871 census that covers the exact location where a family lived? For 1901, I was able to find the con and lot number which was a big help. I'm trying to find out if a McMillan family was already living in con 4 lot 37 in 1871, Too bad the original images of the 1871 are not online. The index online only has the head of the family. I need more to confirm if the family I found is the right one.

In 1851, 37.4 Lochiel was the lot of Donald "the Beaver" M(a)cMillan and family. Donald's wife's surname was also M(a)cMillan. Mary was the daughter of Alexander the Bard M(a)cMillan of 10.8 Kenyon. Here is a link to the online "Butternuts and Maple Sugar" for this lot: http://www.ourroots.ca/e/page.aspx?id=895931 There is a note on the previous page regarding the NW corner (10 acres) occupied by a different M(a)cMillan family circa 1860's (a Donald and wife Mary Fobert).


Following is the Donald "the Beaver" family enumerated in the 1851 Lochiel Twp census:

75 37 McMillan Donald M 47 M Canada Free Church Farmer
75 38 McMillan Mary F 47 M Canada Free Church
75 39 McMillan John M 25 S Canada Free Church Labourer

Thank you very much. This is the McMillan family I was looking for. And a special thank you for the name Fobert. Her name was unreadable on the documents I was able to find on her daughter Charlotte, my ancestor.

I will read the Butternuts and Maple Sugar section that applies to the Mac/McMillan. You've help with a very old brickwall.

I just tried the link that I gave your for "Butternuts and Maple Sugar", and it does not point to you to the correct page. Once the page comes up.. you will need to key in page 278 and then enter. At the bottom of page 278 you find some information on your M(a)cMillan's, incl. a mention of your Charlotte.

Thank you, I had read some of the pages, but I never thought that Charlotte and her siblings would be named also. It confirms information I found before. This book is a great source.

I found a death record for Duncan, a brother to your Charlotte and the husband of Mary McMillan. See last name on attached list. Duncan may have been buried at St. Alexander of Lochiel RC Church on April 29, 1905.

Cleaning up my email box, I wasn't sure if I ever thanked you for Duncan's death certificat. Since then I've been able to fill in a lot of blanks in my database. Sharing this was very helpful, thank you
