the date I have from family lore is 21 Jan 1867, but cannot find any proof.  He married Sarah Jane Baker after emigrating to Michigan (Sault Ste. Marie) before 1890 (their wedding).

We didn't start keeping track of births until July 1869 in Ontario, so there will be no birth certificate or 'official record' to seek. The date you have might have been taken from an old family bible??
that's what I thought--just hoped someone might have another idea for a source.
