Looking for siblings of Janet Howat as well as location family settled in Ontario, Canada (I've had some difficulty trying to find even a trace of them). Here's my trail of evidence so far:

On Jan. 13 1865 Thomas Bond 22 yrs. (s/o Thomas & Margaret [Milroy]) married Janet T. Howitt [sic] 19 yrs. (d/o John and Isabella [Lochead [sic]]) in Blenheim Twp., Oxford Co. ONT Canada. In the marriage register it is indicated that she was born in Ayrshire Scotland. Scotch nationality confirmed by 1901 Census where her birthdate is Feb. 26 1844, and date of emigration 1849 (Bond family was also of Scotch origin).

Additionally found the following at the LDS website:

Janet Thomson HOWAT

(Baptisms v.4 1820-1854)

Marriage: Nov. 17 1843 Riccarton, Ayr, Scotland
Spouse: John HOWAT
