In Reply to: Looking for Family Members in Scotland by Heather McKechnie of 499

Dear Heather,
I am researching my wifes's great grandmother. Her name was Mary McKechnie born abt 1859 near Owen Sound, Ontario.

She married a Samuel Isaac McKeen while she was living with her brother in Winnipeg. She would have married between 1881 and 1885. She and her husband travelled by oxcart or Red River cart to Prince Albert in what is now Saskatchewan, where they homesteaded. Apparently her brother owned a foundry in Winnipeg, and I believe his name was John McKechnie. Any relation to your family?
Sorry this is not a direct connection to your search.
hope to hear back
Lee Gordon Goodfellow
