In Reply to: Donald Urquhart and Jennie McGolpin by Stephen Haig of 986

With the help of a fellow researcher, Cathy, who has a trial subscription to pay-per-view Ancestry.ca, the following Ontario vital records were found. Unfortunately, a marriage between Donald and Elizabeth Jane was not found.

BIRTHS
Nellie Irene Urquhart, born 3 Jul 1887, female, York, parents: Donald Urquhart, Elizabeth J McGolpin.
Norman Currie Urquhart, born 7 Oct 1893, male, York, parents: Donald Urquhart, Jannie McGolphin.
Jean Margaret Urquhart, born 20 Dec 1901, female, York, parents: Donald Urquhart, Elizabeth J McGolpin.
Edith Margaret Mcgolpin, born 3 Aug 1896, female, York, parents: William John McGolpin, Susan Wilson.
Jennie Mcgolpin, born 15 Jun 1900, female, York, parents: William John McGolpin, Susan.
Ruth Mcgolpin, born 3 Aug 1896, female, York, parents: William John McGolpin, Susan Wilson.
Sarah Mcgolpin, born 22 Jul 1892, female, York, parents: William John McGolpin, Susan Wilson.
William Carr Mcgolpin, born 4 Jul 1887, male, York, parents: James Andrew McGolpin, Annie Victoria Bowron.

I can not find the families of Donald Urquhart, William John McGolpin and James Andrew McGolpin in the 1901 census. I don't think they were missed, but possibly their names were misspelled by the enumerator, or not correctly transcribed by the website folks.
