Looking for info on James McIntyre, born Scotland 1794, married Margery McDonald of Charlottenburg, Glengarry, Ontario

+2 votes
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.

Another place to check Old Parish registers is ScotlandsPeople


Library and Archives Canada has two records of Immigration for the name James McIntyre.

Thanks!! I'll follow up on these!

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!
