I am trying to trace the names of the parents of my great great grandfather, John Octavius Macrae, and any information about them....where and when they were born, where they lived, when and where they were married, when and where they died....
My great great grandfather was born on 24 September 1834....and that is all the information I have on him. I'm not sure if he was born in Canada, but believe he was - but he was certainly living in Hamilton when he was married on 18 October 1859 to Victoria St George Ritchie. His eldest son, John Ogilvy Macrae, was born on 15 March 1862 in Hamilton. John and Victoria lived on Park Street at the time of their son's birth and he was a merchant. Victoria died on 11 May 1876, in Hamilton, aged 36 years. Between Victoria's death, and 1879, it appears that John Octavius moved to England. He died (suddenly) on 12 May 1881, aged 46 years.
Can anyone help?
