George Michie and family
Posted by: John Cleeve (ID *****3932) Date: May 13, 2007 at 09:27:53

I am trying to find out more about the family of George Michie who died on 31 Jan 1866. His will gives the following information:

George Michie, d 31 Jan 1866
       Brother James Michie - Scotland
              Nephew John Michie
              Nephew Henry Michie - Fergus, Upper Canada
              Nephew James Michie - Toronto, Canada
              Niece Sophia Michie - Toronto, Canada
              Niece Jane Michie - Scotland
              Niece Euphemia Michie - Fergus, Upper Canada
       Sister Isabella Michie (m. ? Michie) - Corgarff, Scotland
              Nephew Henry Michie
              Niece Mary Michie
       Sister Penelope Michie (m. ? McHardy)
              Niece Jane McHardy
              Nephew John McHardy - Goderich, Upper Canada
              Nephew Norman McHardy - Toronto, Canada
              Nephew Forbes McHardy - Toronto, Canada
              Nephew George McHardy - Fergus, Upper Canada
              Nephew Charles McHardy - Colborn, Huron, Canada
       Brother Charles Michie - Nichol, Wellington, Canada
       Sister Margaret (m. ? Leitch) - Fergus, Upper Canada
              Niece Isabella Leitch - Fergus, Upper Canada
              Niece Mary (? Leitch) (m. ? Matthews) - Detroit, USA
       Sister Mary Ann (m. John Grassock) (?Grassick) - Aberdeen, Scotland
              Niece unnamed
              Niece unnamed
              Niece unnamed
              Niece unnamed
              Niece unnamed
              Nephew Patrick Grassock (?Grassick)
              Nephew John Grassock (?Grassick) - Toronto, Canada
              Nephew Charles Grassock (?Grassick) - Clifton, Upper Canada
       Sister-in-law Caroline, widow of late brother John Michie
              Niece Caroline Michie - London, Upper Canada
              Nephew John Michie - London, Upper Canada

Can anyone help please with dates and perhaps who George's parents were? An entry in "A History of Toronto and County of York", published in 1885, for James Michie also gives some information on George.
Searches in the IGS and Scotlandspeople have provided me with some additional information but do not show this as one family e.g. Mary Ann who married John Grassick appears to have a maiden name of Forbes or more properly Masson. Nor do these sites show a George Michie with this entire list of siblings. All those listed received bequests and their relationship to George is given.
I shall be most grateful for any help and suggestions.
