My name is Cindy Gillmor (nee Buchanan) living in Ontario, Canada. I am hoping to connect with any Buchanan, Muirhead, McKinlay relatives from the "old land".***My gr. gr. grandparents Walter Buchanan and Mary McKinlay settled in Ravenna, Ontario. They sailed over on their honeymoon in the 1880's. According to the Int. Genealogical Index Walter was born July 8,1862 in Denny, Stirling and Mary Sept. 10, 1863 in Cambuslang, Lanark.*** Walter's parents were John Buchanan and Janet (or Jessie) Muirhead. They had a rented dairy farm near Edinburgh-their children were James, Agnes, John, George, Charlie, Alex, Willie, Mary, Lizzie, Archie, Walter, Robert and Jessie. The parents both died of a fever about a month apart and some of the children went to work and live with the Muirhead grandparents. The Muirhead farm was at Leith.*** Mary's parents were James McKinlay and Janet Hutton. I have no record of any siblings.***I have discovered several small studio portraits taken in Edinburgh and Glasgow but there are no names recorded on the back. Many have a family resemblance and I would love to put a name to them. Perhaps contacting some distant relatives in Scotland who may also be in possession of the same photos would solve this mystery.***If you think you may be connected I'd LOVE to hear from you!!
