According to the on-line version of the 1881 census of Lot 65, Queens Co., PEI (presumably near Bedeque), Malcolm and Elizabeth Ross were living with their son, George. (At least, George is listed as head-of-household. Malcolm was age 68, born Scotland, Scottish, a minister and Baptist. Elizabeth was age 57, Scottish and b. Nova Scotia. Their children (all Scottish,b. PEI, Baptist) were: George, 32, farmer; Harriet, 26; Fanny, 23; Emma, 21; Grace, 17 and Faye, 19, teacher.Donald 'McFayden', 23, Scottish, Presbyterian was listed in the household as a servant.
The IGI has Malcom b. Elliot River, PEI ca. 1815 (which, I am sure, is incorrect) and has him m. to Elizabeth Ellis in Sackville, NS 27OCT1845. While the date-of-marriage may be correct, I have some difficulty with the place as Sackville is in NB; although Lower Sackville is in NS.
In the 1890 Prince County Exhibition, Malcolm Ross of Bedeque won 2nd place in the 'Native Carriage Stallion' category. Whether this was the same Malcolm is unknown.
My somewhat distant cousin, Malcolm Ross Strang (b. 1852) was baptized 24MAR1869. I would guess that Malcom Ross was the attending minister, as it was not uncommon for the minister's name to be given to the child.
