My GG Grandfather was William Irvine born in Scotland. His wife was Elizabeth Considine born in Ireland... They immigrated to Canada where William was a school teacher, later a post master in Edgely, Canada.
They had seveal kids and I don't have all the names. My line is through their daughter Catherine Irvine who married John Erlin Kaiser.
From my notes: (These sources say pretty much the same thing)
From a biography of Dr. T. E. Kaiser, circa 1910. The Doctor’s mother was Catherine Irvine, a daughter of William Irvine, who was a Scotchman and a member of the famous regiment known as the Cameron men. He [William Irvine] was schoolmaster sergeant for the regiment and was present at the battle of Waterloo. After coming to Canada he continued to engage in teaching school, principally in York county. He was a university graduate and many men of the past generation owe their education to him, one of his most distinguished pupils being the late John Hilliard Cameron.
note: this is from a small hand written paper I found in family papers. William Irvine was a Sergeant of the 79th Regiment of Highlanders. Enlisted in the year 1816. Was in the battle of Waterloo. Came to Canada about 1835. Being highly educated, taught school in Canada at Edgeley and other places. Retired in 1874, becoming Postmaster at Elders Mills- until his death in 1880 (he was 86) The other side of the paper, Eliza Considine, married WM. Irvine. born at town of? Maine ? County Clare, Ireland. Mother of Catherine who married John E Kaiser, son of Jacob Kaiser

The first district school inspector was Duncan McCallum. (husband of Margaret Kaiser).
Edgeley was originally granted to members of the Queen’s Rangers who accompanied Governor Simcoe from Niagara to York in 1800 and then sold to mostly German settlers.
