Does anyone recognize these Keech's- Charles and Eleanor, who lived in Brockville, Ontario, both born in United States?

From Brockville District, Ontario Canada 1901 Census: Brockville Centre & Brockville North Ward:

Keetch, Charles H. Head Born Aug. 20, 1862 in United States, immigrated 1881.
Keetch, Eleanor S. Wife Born Sept. 19, 1871, U.S.

The reason I want to find relatives is that I have a Charles H. Keech and his wife Ella Nulty in my Keech files, both from Fishers Landing in (?) Jefferson County in New York State. I have no additional info on them- where they went from NYS, names of children, etc.

I have been told that Brockville, Ontario is about 20 miles downriver (north) from Clayton, in New York State.

In my records there is this Keech couple buried in Calgary, Alberta cemetery who closely match same Charles & Eleanor also...

From Burnsland Cemetery Index, Calgary, Alberta, 1994

Keech, Charles H. 1865-1937
Keech, Eleanor Louise 1870-1954

The middle initial "S" for Eleanor recorded above at Brockville could have easily been mistaken for an "L", as in "Louise".

If anyone has any identifying/connecting info, please write to me. I do have background info for Fishers Landing Charles H. Keech, son of 1827 John Keech and his wife Abigail Stickney, and names of Ella's parents.
