McGregor/MacMillan Families of Cape Breton/1800s

Surnames: McGregor, MacGregor, McMillan, MacMillan, McLean, Cameron
I am trying to find the Gregor McGregor who married Flora MacMillan sometime prior to 1860. I believe Gregor was born about 1830, somewhere in Cape Breton. He presumably died prior to the 1871 census (Flora is listed as a widow). However, I've not been able to find any record that I can absolutely tie back to him.

Flora MacMillan was born about 1833 (based on her death certificate) in Cape Breton. She was the daughter of Malcolm MacMillan and Mary McLean. Flora and Gregor had two daughters that I know about - Mary born in 1860 and Flora born in 1862. The girls lived alternatively with their mother as servants in other people's homes and with their Uncle, Donald MacMillan, in Lake Ainslie.

Flora MacMillan died in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, USA in 1909. Her body was removed to the East Lake Ainslie Cemetery in Lake Ainslie, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. I have not found any record of a Gregor McGregor also buried there.

Parts of this MacMillan line are well documented. However, I have found very little on Flora, and I have found nothing on Gregor McGregor. If anyone recognizes this line of the McGregor or MacMillan families, I would love to hear from you.
