I am so glad you have posted something in regards to this dilemma as I have been trying to figure it out for ages!!
The fellow in question was Gregor McINTYRE Sr and the son is Gregor McINTYRE Jr who married Margaret MOODIE.
Here are Gregor Jr, Margaret and Gregor Sr and Catherine in 1881 Census for Horton, Renfrew South, Ontario, Canada Source:FHL Film 1375870NAC C-13234Dist 113SubDist BPage 10Family 38 Sex Marr Age Origin Birthplace Gregor MCINTYRE, JR.

NOW, here are Alexander JAMIESON & Catherine AIRTH in the "same" Census for 1881, also married ~

I can see her having a child OUTSIDE marriage with Gregor McINTYRE on Jul 24 1853 before her later marriage, but I cannot see how she can be listed as "married" to both men in the 1881 Census!
Any ideas or documentation?Which of Gregor Jr and Margaret's children are you descended from??
