Catharine McDOUGALL/William HAY, Charlotte EWART/William HAY

I'm tracing a William Hay M.D., C.M., L.R.C.P.S., who I believe was my great-grandfather. I have his actual certificate as an examining surgeon, dated 1889, for Travelers Insurance in Richland NY. After this he set up a private medical practice in what was called St. Lawrence NY at the time but is now the town of Cape Vincent NY. He also earned some type of divinity/theological certificate or degree along the way.

A local Cape Vincent history of the day has this information about him:

born: Stratford Perth Ontario

parents: R.M. HAY, a merchant, from Lanark, Canada, retired to Paisley, Bruce, Ontario. Charlotte EWART, from or born in Edinburgh, Scotland.

spouse: Catharine McDOUGALL from Stormont, Ontario.

One son, William HAY, who if these Hays are in fact mine was my grandfather. He married Elizabeth FORD of Quebec. I have a good line on the Fords, have gotten nowhere with this Wm. HAY, Charlotte EWART or Catharine McDOUGALL. There are millions of William Hays in the world, which does complicate matters.

Thanks in advance for anything anyone might know about these folks.
