We are indeed cousins.Alexander Maitland (b.1761) and Margaret Thomson (1760-1833) are also my 4 greats grandparents.
My line is: James Keith Maitland - Helen Booth Christian (Christina) Maitland - George Mortimer William M. Mortimer - Viola Pyle George E. Mortimer - Ethel Kays Richard Mortimer - Lois Bergstrom Randal Mortimer
George and Christina (Maitland) Mortimer followed her uncle, the first Francis Maitland, to Wellington County, Ontario in about 1856.They thought enough of Uncle Francis to name one of their sons, Francis.
What do you have for an ancestry for Alexander (b. 1761)?
