Looking for any information on Alexander Gray Neill and his family. Alexander was born 7 July 1856 in Mill of Torr(Kincardine Parish), Perthshire, Scotland. Immigrated to Wisconsin, USA in 1859 with his parents (John Neill and Margaret Moreland). Married an Elizabeth I. ? between 1880 and 1886, possibly in Wisconsin?. Immigrated to Canada in 1898. By 1901 (based on Census of Canada) was living in Wetaskiwin Township. Had at least 4 children: Robert M. {1886, USA}; Hugh M. {1887, USA}; Joseph D. {1896, USA}; and Alberta M. (girl) {1899, Alberta}. Based on an 1922 obituary for his brother, John (from Wisconsin), Alex was living in Camrose, Alberta. I have some information that indicates that his daughter, Alberta I think, was married to a Ray Sawyer(s), but do not know where they lived. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Trail has grown cold... -- KN

You can order death papers, however when ordering this you are given 2 options - the Certificate,
or a "Certified Photographic Print of the Registration of Death" which usually gives more information than that fancy Certificate.

Hi,my Grandmother's maiden name was Neill. I believe it's the same family based on your information. Looks like you posted this a while ago so not sure if you found what you were looking for already or not?
