McKechnie family in Dundas, Ontario late 1800's

Hi, my mom's a McKechnie from Wisconsin, she told me her great great grandfather Robert McKechnie emigrated from Scotland to Dundas Ontario with his two brothers. She thinks that one went on to Winnepeg and one went on to Alberta. Robert married Isabella and went on to have 6-8 kids, although not all grew to adulthood. There were two boys, one was my mother's grandfather, Robert Ross McKechnie, and one was David (?) who had no kids. Her great great grandfather Robert also re-married and had a few more kids although we don't know their names. My grandfather's name was David Robert McKechnie and his brother was Robert Ross Jr.(had no kids). Also when Robert lived in Dundas, he was a partner in the company Canada Tool Works around 1871 (I have a photo of one of their ads!). Wondering if there are any other relatives that are descendants of the Ontario McKechnie's.
