There seem to be several Farquhar McRae's born around the same time in Canada.
I am interested in the one that shows up in the 1861 Middlesex, Ontario Census with Charles Murray Ferris and his family (incorrectly spelled Farres in this Census).He is 12 years old, born in Upper Canada and it says he is "adopted".
Charles Murray Ferris (1827-1915) is the brother of my husbands GR-GR-Grandmother, Mary Ann Ferris (1829-1918, and she married John FARQUHAR (1823-1897) in 1846. Is the adoption of Farquhar McRae a coincidence?
I am unable to determine if any of the other Farquhar McRae's that show up in various Census' after 1861 are "my" Farquhar McRae.I find a marriage record how do I know it belongs to "my" Farquhar McRae since I don't know his original parents names.I have also tried doing searches for Farquhar Ferris just in case he changed his last name after he was adopted.
