Regarding James McKie(MacCay) Lamberton 1858-1918.
According to his Obituary, my Great Great Grandfather "Jamie" immigrated from Ayrshire, Scotland to Grand Rapids, Michigan (Possibly through Canada) as a very young child (appx 1 year - poss 1859) then returned to Scotland at 12 years of age (1870-72) to finish his education.
He then returned to the U.S. in 1887, married, and worked in Brooklyn, NY until his death in 1918.
Besides his Obituary, the family has nothing about his time in Michigan.
Now here's the real puzzler - Jamie's parents remained in Kilmaurs, Ayr through this entire period.
