Have hit a brick wall in finding the ancestors for my great-great-grandmother Jane (maybe Janet) Mackie b Jan. 1828 in Culsalmond. (She's not the one born in July 1828; that one can be traced in the UK thru censuses). Mine emigrated to Canada and married William Cosford (b. 1818) in 1846. He was a son of John and Martha Cosford who came to Canada in 1819, settled first in Tecumseh, Simcoe County, but then moved in the spring of 1846 to Wellington county, the Queen's Bush area. Ontario marriage records for all of John's kids except my Wm and Jane can be found; most were married by dear brother Rev. Tom Cosford. Oldest child for Wm and Jane born in Wellington cty in 1847. Have searched the OPRs for Culsalmond such as available online. Can't find Jane's birth or marriage record to unlock her parents. Suspect a Mathew & Tryphena given naming pattern of children appears to be the old Scottish way. Devout Wesleyan Methodists at least in Canada. Have scoured history books and ship manifests. Help me find a Mackie needle in the haystack of Mackies??? please...of course could be McKie, MacKie, Mackay but was spelled consistently Mackie. Think Culsalmond is definite birthplace as is cited often. help, direction, all is welcome. Thks.
