Afternoon Michael

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

www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

========================

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-

www.familysearch.org

me: Alexander Mitchell
Title:
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.
