seems like the best fit granted the birth date i have is 1793

orkneys should be small enough.

he did die very rich for the time period.  had all the hunting and sealing for a vast part of what is now Quebec

 

thanks
His mother was named Margaret Spence, the same name as my g grandmother, only my Margaret Spence was born in Ontario near Lake Simcoe about 1843. She relocated with my g grandfather to Erie County, PA and was in the 1870 census there.
