I would be very appreciative if you could confirm any of these dates for me, or add any to my list.
I'm particularly interested in knowing the names of James Stephen's (b. May 15, 1805) parents and their date of marriage.
Thank you for any assistance you can give me.
ps. My father-in-law Ian says he met a young man named "Buchan" 20-some years ago in Vancouver, B.C. up Grouse Mountain and they determined that they were related.
