Thanks for your help.This family has been a major brickwall once they left Scotland and arrived in Canada. My greatgranmother was the oldest Douglas daughter, Nicholas and arrived in San Francisco within days of the census being taken in Simmonds.Actually I had much of the info you mentioned.I had the OPR's from New Abbey as well date of arrival, ship name, manifest. It felt at that NB had swallowed them. Yes there were approximately about 7 or 8 families in Simmonds alone. This is a great Thanksgiving Day present for me.
