I have been told that my paternal great grandfather was married to a woman who left him, moved to he U.S. and married a Reeves who would have been a parent/grandparent to Jimmy Reeves the singer.

My dad's father was Hugh Mackenzie who was born in 1881 and it was his mother who left his father (Donald MacKenzie) for the U.S. They lived in Glengarry County, Ontario. We have a family bible but Hugh MacKenzie's (or McKenzie) mother (Donald Mackenzie's wife is not listed :), so this is simply the gossip about singer Jimmy Reeve and my family heard from relatives. I have not been able to find any factual truth. I only know that for sure my grandfather's mother (who would have been my great grandmother) did leave her husband. Imagine leaving your husband and a child in 1880s or so- must have been quite a story I can only imagine...
