Hi Joan, I was lucky enough to find an old obituary on his son William and in it they mentioned the 71st regiment and that his father was a soldier. So checked the discharge papers from the government and found a Robert McKechnie, so I ordered the papers for his 1847 discharge and found out where he was born and when. After this I found his family in the 1851 Canadian census and got the names of his children, I can confirm I have the right man as my great grandfather was listed as a teenager, and one daughter was born in Bermuda where Robert was a soldier in 1834. I could not find Robert but his wife is listed as married and not wedowed so he must have been somewhere else at the time of the census. Her name was Ellen or Hellen and children were John, James, Elizabeth, William , Rose and C.W. we think Cecil but can't prove it yet. There may have been other children but haven't found them yet. There is a man that has a site with McKechnie's from Ireland, it is only one page but you might have luck there. Do you see any connection to my family members? You can reach me at my home email, Thanks, Wendy
