I am researching Jacob McVagh/McVeigh in Leeds Co, Ontario. Suspected birth date according to census data is 1804 or 1805 with a confirmed death of 2 Apr 1880 in the same county. Have looked at old census data and Jacob doesn't turn up until 1844 as a land owner. I suspect his mother is Lavinia as she is living with him in 1851. However, I haven't been able to track down birth information for Jacob to confirm this. He was an Episcopal Methodist and might b in church records. Any suggestions about where to start?
