Hi! I'm looking for the ancestors and family of my g4-grandfather William Alex Harkness. He was born on January 25, 1822 in Lower Canada, and died May 10, 1867.
He married Harriet Polley (daughter of Henry Polley and Polly LaRue Munro). She was born December 25, 1824, and died February 2, 1909.
They had 8 children (that I know of):
Polly Harkness b. January 29, 1845
Flora Harkness b. 1846 (my g3-grandmother)
Augusta Harkness b 1848
Adelaide Harkness b. September 2, 1849
Herum Harkness b. 1852
Lucy Harkness b. 1855
Wallace Harkness b. 1858
Emma Harkness b. 1860
I believe that all the children were born in Mallorytown, Leeds County, Ontario.
On later censuses under ethnicity, for some of the children, it says Scottish. Their mother was not Scottish, so their father must be.
A lot of the family moved to Saskatchewan.
Any help on the roots of William Alex Harkness will be greatly appreciated!!
