Town Location in Canada?

Town Location in Canada?

One of my Great Grandfather's brothers shows as born in Kingston, but no province is shown. Birth would have been around 1853. I've searched a lot for the Kingston, Ontario area, and thus far been unable to find a birth for him. His name was David McMullan/McMullen and parents of John and Margaret. I'm wondering if there was also a Kingston, Quebec?? If there was (or is), where is it or was it located in Quebec??

Your help is appreciated!!

Thanks,

Your problem lies in the fact that there were no birth records for that timeframe; civil registration did not begin in Ontario until 1869; you would need to be looking for church records.

Three other provinces have Kingstons. There is one in Newfoundland and one in New Brunswick. Wikipedia has some info posted.
There is also an unincorporated area in Prince Edward Island. See

There might be a baptismal record.
You might check l852,l88l,l90l,l9ll
census records on line, as possibly he
had other siblings.
This would at least indicate if they are
in Kingston,Ont.
also mormon records - pilot search
www.automatedgenealogy.com
l852-l90l,l9ll census
Morman records - l88l census
and also do Pilot search

Thank you all so much!! This one is complicated. John and Margaret (maiden name Orr) McMullan married in Ireland and had Arthur there in 1845. My Great Grandfather William John McMullan was born to them in Montreal in 1847. Then I believe David was born in Kingston in 1853. My though is it's Kingston, Ontario, but I can't be sure?

On the 1851(52) Canada census I found Margaret, Arthur, and William John on a Montreal census. Margaret shows as married, but no husband listed. John is absent at this time. Margaret is living with others from Ireland by name of Johnston. Margaret and 2 of the Johnston's show as tailors.

Mom, Margaret is married to a John Hinds on 1861 census and in Toronto. Children are shown as Arthur, William John, and David Hinds, but I believe are McMillan/McMullan's!! David is shown on the 1861 census as born in Kingston, but no Province shown.

For the 1871 census my Great Grandfather William John McMillan is married in Fergus (he married Annie Todd in 1867), has 2 children, and who appears to be a brother David McMillan is living with them. On the 1871 census David is shown as born in Ontario, but no birth city shown.

Their Mom, Margaret Hinds marries Matthew Todd in 1865, and they live in Fergus. Matthew is Annie Todd's Father.

Matthew died in 1878, and Margaret Todd marries Andrew Gartley in Fergus. Margaret Gartley died in 1910 a widow.

Margaret is always shown as a Wesleyan Methodist, and I have checked all the birth records I've been able to find online, and will keep looking.

I'm hoping to find any information on where and when John McMullan may have died (or divorced??), and confirm the birth of David McMullan.

Thanks!! Tom McMillan (Washougal, WA)

Wesleyan Methodist records are not on-line. The ones for Kingston, Ontario are found at the United Church Archives in Toronto http://www.united-church.ca/local/archives/on

The 1851/52 census for the town of Kingston is missing so is not available.

I did find a website that showed what are said to be Wesleyan Methodist baptism records transcribed by Ida Reed. Here's a link to that: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~wjmartin/w...

I have seen certain Wesleyan marriage records also, but I imagine all birth, marriage, and/or death records are likely not totally complete.

I was directed to that from Bill Martin's site which seems to have a wealth of genealogical links and information. Here's a link to his site: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~wjmartin/s...

Thanks for the info on the 1852 census records not being available for Kingston.

You might also look for Frontenac, Ontario, the county in which Kingston, Ontario lies.
