Afternoon Michael

I have not been able to confidently find Alexander Mitchell in the OPR BMDs on Scotland's People-


There is this result in the 1881 Canadian Census available on the LDS Family Search site, the only AM in Ontarion with a wife named Mary-

me: Alexander Mitchell
Gender: Male
Age: 62y
Calculated Birth Year: 1819
Birthplace: Scotland
Marital Status: Married
Occupation: Farmer & Bailiff
Ethnic Origin: Scottish
Religion: Free Thinker
Head of Household: Alexander Mitchell
Born During Last Year:
Census Place: Collingwood, Grey East, Ontario, Canada
District Number: 155
Sub District: B
Division: 1
Page Number: 21
House Number: 752066
Family Number: 95
Digital Folder Number: 4466837
Image Number: 00108
Film Number: 1375897
Library and Archives Canada Film Number: C-13261
Household Gender Age Birthplace
Alexander Mitchell M 62y Scotland
Mary Mitchell F 55y Scotland
George Mitchell M 27y Ontario
William Mitchell F 24y Ontario
Thomas Mitchell M 20y Ontario
Mary E. Mitchell F 15y Ontario
Malcolm Mitchell M 13y Ontario
Isabella S. Mitchell F 11y Ontario
Walter Mitchell M 9y Ontario


What is the source of the Birth Date and location for Alexander; and for his Marriage to Mary?

It is nearly always useful if that additional information is provided.


Given his Birth Year, it clearly before Statutory Registration starting in 1855, so would appear to be from a Baptismal record; or from his own understnding.
