William MacKay was listed as a Canadian Soldier, English speaking, and was 66 years old at the time of the 1901 census was taken, born Dec 25 1835. His wife Emma (last name unknown, French Canadian), in the census she was listed and french speaking and uneducated, born 1855.
Their children all french speaking and Scottish background.

Alice, March, 17 years old, (grandmother. Gave birth to Albert Joseph Richer June 1914 Limoges, father unknown first name, last name Richer. It is known that Alice either died of TB or in a train crash in 1914 or 1915.)
