This is the McLennan family I am trying to research -

William is found in the 1881 Canadian Census with his parents - John (b.abt 1829 Ross Shire, Scotland - d 18 March 1915 Thessalon, Algoma) and mother Ellen (nee GOLLAN) (b. abt 1821, Ross Shire, Scotland - d. 15 March 1909 Grey County) and some of his siblings (John Hector [4 wives], Eliza Jane [married Philip FREE], Rhoda [married George H GAMBELL]).

His other siblings are -
Duncan (b. abt 1850, Scotland) married Mary LAYCOCK
Ellen (b. abt 1853, Scotland)
Donald (b. abt 1854, Scotland) married Mary SEABROOK
Margaret (b. abt 1856, Ontario) married Robert LAYCOCK
Mary J (b. abt 1858, Ontario) married Robert CLARK

I have been able to follow this family back and forward with some degree of satisfaction but can't find William after 1881.

William's parents are alone in the house in the 1891 Canadian Census.

I am hoping that someone will have connections to the above families and may have hints as to where he may be.

I am wanting to attach him to my family but there is nothing to say he is "My" William who marries Sophia ROBINSON in Manitoba in 1900.

I am a member of Clan MacLennan Canada (I'm also the Newsletter editor) as well as the International Clan MacLennan. A joint project is just getting underway to begin a family tree repository for Clan MacLennan members to share and contribute to. This is a big project and once up and running we will be posting not only trees in a GEDCOM format but various archival information that has been collected by members over the years from all over the world. I'm very excited about the possibilities this may have for the long term archiving of many peoples work.
