James McMillan and Jane Magill/McGill were both born in 1836 in or near Belfast. James' parents were James McMillan and Maria Furlong. James and Jane moved to Ontario as newlyweds about 1858. I have not been able to find a marriage registration for them in Ireland, Ontario or England. He was a school teacher.
