Bye the way. I have the 1861 census for Elgin County on loan to me through the LDS's FHC. In it I found Thomas Mills, farmer, born NS, Baptist, age 55. Wife Martha, born NS, Baptist, age 48. Children Ruth age 23, Henry age 15, Dorcas age 13, Margaret(?) age 9, Thomas age 7, Hanna age 5, and Douglas age 3.
