I would like information about when my g-g-grandfather James McIntyre immigrated to Glengarry, Ontario and where in Scotland he came from.

  I have followed the family through various Ontario censuses 1851, 1861, 1871, and 1881.  Family information says he died 4 May 1883, but I cannot find death and burial information for either him or his wife Margery.

Children were Donald(Danny) 1829, Isabella 1834, Betsy 1837, Katy 1839, Jinny/Jenet 1842, Mary 1845, John (Johnnie Jim) 1847 -- dates approximate.  All born in Glengarry, Ontario.

OCFA only has one entry for a Margery McIntyre in Glengarry County at Maxville Cemetery which is in Kenyon Twp., where they were enumerated in the censuses Perhaps this is a good place to start your search.

Unfortunately findagrave only has about 23% of this cemetery photographed and none of the McIntyres are amongst those.

Thank you!  I will track that down.  But as my status says, I'm a newbie to both WikiTree and genealogy --OCFA?  I don't know what that is, but I will find it.  I did find the www.cornwallroots.info site that has photos of many headstones at the Maxville Cemetary including some other relatives.  I thought they might be there, but couldn't find the info.  So, thank you!
