William KILGOUR Scotland to Ontario about 1905
Posted by: Carolyn (ID *****6155) Date: October 22, 2007 at 12:47:55

I am looking for any information on William KILGOUR and his wife Ellen/Helen SMART who came to Brantford, Ontario between June 1904 and June 1907.

They had at least one child: Douglas Smart KILGOUR born June 29, 1907 Brantford, Ontario, Canada.

William and Ellen were married June 16, 1904 in Edinburgh, Scotland. William born 1872, Ellen born 1870.

I have their marriage record and birth record for Douglas.

I cannot find them in the 1911 Canada census. I have looked at ancestry.com but they are not in the index. Maybe they were listed under a different spelling although I have tried every spelling I can think of. HELP!!


I found Douglas crossing the border to Detroit, MI in 1944 so should have been in Canada until then. I think he was only going for a visit, not to move to U.S. but unsure.

I have a lot on William's family in Scotland. His brother Thomas was my g-grandfather. Thomas came to Canada 1911.

I was told William had a son James but have not found him. He may have been born in Scotland??

Any information would be much appreciated.I would like to know what happened to William, Ellen and family after 1907.

Carolyn
