Morning Sherry

This looks like the family in the 1881 Canadian Census on the IGI at-

http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp

Household:

Name Marital Status Gender Ethnic Origin Age Birthplace Occupation Religion
Donald DOW M Male Scottish 56 Scotland Farmer C. Presbyterian
Ann DOW M Female Scottish 54 Scotland C. Presbyterian
Peter DOW Male Scottish 32 Scotland Farmer C. Presbyterian
Colin DOW Male Scottish 24 Ontario Farmer C. Presbyterian
Mary DOW Female Scottish 22 Ontario C. Presbyterian
Daniel DOW Male Scottish 19 Ontario C. Presbyterian
Angus DOW Male Scottish 14 Ontario C. Presbyterian
James DOW Male Scottish 12 Ontario C. Presbyterian
Robert DOW Male Scottish 8 Ontario C. Presbyterian
Isabella DOW Female Scottish 16 Ontario C. Presbyterian
Michael SHERIDAN Male Irish 62 Ireland Servant Catholic


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Source Information:
Census Place Fitzroy, Carleton, Ontario

===============================

That census suggests that Donald was born around 1825; and there is only one Donald Dow birth in the IGI that is near in date; but in Edinburgh rather than Skye-

2. DONALD DOW - International Genealogical Index / BI
Gender: Male Birth: 20 JUN 1827 Edinburgh Parish, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland

so unlikely to bne the correct one.

============================

This may be there marriage banns; but again some distance from Skye-

1. DONALD DOW - International Genealogical Index / BI
Gender: Male Marriage: 05 SEP 1846 Lecropt, Perth, Scotland

2. DONALD DOW - International Genealogical Index / BI
Gender: Male Marriage: 06 SEP 1846 Dunblane, Perth, Scotland

===========================

Whilst familysearch is very helpful in getting started, you should confirm the Scottish events at-

http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk
Credit/Debit card charge on-line

It is a most comprehensive site for Scottish BMD and Census records, all directly from "official" sources, so very reliable.

Take a look at the Index-
