Surnames: Rankin, Henderson
George Roy Rankin (born 1818) Jane Henderson (Born 1822)
Thier children , Mary Jane ((1852), James Stewart (1853),
Margaret (1855), George Duncan(1855), Ida (1859), James Henderson (1861), George Damien(1863) Janetta(1865), Robert Robson(1867). There must have been older children living away, these are listed in the family home in census of 1871, with exception of my grandfather George Duncan, who we know was away at the time apprenticing as a blacksmith. George Roy was a stonecutter, I do not know for sure whether he was born in N.S. or Scotland. One of sisters married Adam Murray and they had the first set of quintuplets in Canada in 1880 or therabouts. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
