Hello:  I am searching for information regarding James Gibson, born about 1826 or 1827, birthplace: Machrins, Colonsay.  James married Mary McLugash (later the name was changed to McDougal).  They immigrated to Bruce County, Ontario.  I was able to find James on the 1841 Census, he was aged 15 years and listed as "MS" which I am taking as male servant.  He was listed in the census at Archibald McIlafeder's residence in Scredan on Page 15 of the census.  If anyone has any information on James Gibson and the names of his parents (or relatives, siblings), or any information at all, I would be very grateful if you could be kind enough to email it to me.  CODE Susan200610
