Mary McKechnie & Neil McIlreavie in Ontario, Canada

Does anyone have any information on these folks: Mary McKechnie born about 1801 in Scotland, died after April 1881 (census)probably at Elzevir, Hastings County, Ontario; believe she was married to Neil McIlreavie born about 1798 also in Scotland. Some of their children appear to have shortened their surname to REAVIE. They lived at Elzevir, Flinton, Kaladar in either Hastings County, or Lennox and Addington County, Ont.

One daughter Catherine Reavie born Oct. 12, 1835 married Neil McGeachy or McGeachie April 29, 1856 at "Killean and Kilchenzie, Argyll, Scotland" according to LDS records. I have names of four children for them: Maggie, Neil, Mary and Malcolm McGeachy- were there others?

Neil Mcgeachy senior must have died before December 1872 as Catherine re-married on Dec. 26, 1872 to Alexander Laveck or Levesque. They lived at Elzevir as well, and Catherine is buried at Actinolyte Cemetery at (?) Kaladar (?) I only have names of 3 children for them: Bertha, Lillian, and Annie Laveck born 1874 at Elzevir who married Harvie McLuckie in 1895.

Anyone with information on these families, please contact me. These are some of my McLean daughters' ancestors.

Thanks from Nora
