I am researching JAMES MILLAR. He came to Canada, the Ottawa area, probably around 1840. I have records of him in Canada but am interested in information about James and his family in Scotland. I believe he came from Barony, Lanarkshire. JAMES was born in 1817, according to his gravestone, or 1811 according to another family member. He had several brothers and sisters: WILLIAM, CATHERINE, VERA (VERE), THOMAS, JANET (JEAN), MARGARET, MARY and possibly two others. I have no idea of their birth dates. VERA may have married a FERGUSON in Scotland, and later remarried WILLIAM BALFOUR in Canada. VERA died in 1905 and her obituary stated she had a sister in Scotland, and another in New York, U. S. A. The best guess is that MARY stayed in Scotland. If anyone can provide more information I would be happy to receive it. If you want information about James' descendants in Canada, I'd be pleased to provide it.
