Elizabeth Douglas
born 3 Feb 1859 Glengary Ontario
married Thomas McKenzie of Scotland
died 25 May 1948 Altamont Manitoba

Elizabeth (a.k.a. Eliza Jane) was probably illegitimate. She may have lived with a family named Ross in Lancaster. Any information would be appreciated.

Have you discovered anything new regarding Thomas McKenzie and Elizabeth Douglas? I am tracing their ancestry, as they belong to my grandmother's line. I would be very interested to hear if you have anything more on either of them.

I do not see an Elizabeth Douglas on 1861 census for Glengarry but there is an Elizabeth Ross,2yrs.
Same on 1871 census - Elizabeth Ross only.

1881 census
Lancaster Glengarry

She is still with the Ross family but is now listed as 'servant', not daughter, under the name Eliza Douglas, 22, b Ontario.
I did not find an Elizabeth Ross on 1881 census.

Eliza's family stated that she never talked about her parents, that she was brought up by the Ross family. Ross appears frequently in the naming of descendants.

The family settled in Altamont Manitoba and had 8 children.

Can you give me a little more information about the Ross family? I've been looking for this family, with Eliza, but cannot find them in the census reports.

O don't have information on the Ross Family.

Have you seen the 1881 census for Lancaster, Glengarry, Ontario?

Yes, I have seen that one now. I just can't figure out where she was when she was 2. I'm assuming it's with some other Ross family members, as John Ross would be too young, I think, to be caring for a child.

Would you be willing to share some of your research on Thomas & Eliza's children? Lily is my great grandmother. We would be very happy to hear a little more about my grandma's aunts and uncles.
