John Mills was born in Roxburghshire April 3, 1821 and married Elizabeth Hook of Wooler Parish in 1848. Their first child Mary Jane was born Sept.28, 1848 and the second, Thomas on July 2, 1850. John and Elizabeth immigrated to Scarborough Ontario Canada in 1851 and later took up a homestead farm in Melancthon Township, near Shelburne Ontario. Seven more children followed, namely, Margaret,Watson,William, John James, Richard, Ellen Elizabeth,and Sarah Isabella. John also was the secretary treasurer for the Township for many years and retired 1881 and died Feb.12,in 1891.At least one other brother, William,
immigrated to Canada about the same time and perhaps another brother went to the USA. John was my GG Grandfather and we would like to make contact with any relatives in
Scotland or the UK. If you can help, we would be very greatful.--------R. Colin Mills
