My firat Mellis is Robert Mellis, came from Scotland in 1855 and married Jane Smith in 1856. Jane was born in the Orkney Islands. Robt Mellis and Jane Smith had 6 chilren among whom was my great grandmother Jemima Mellis born in Kippen Ontario. Jemima's siblings were William, Elizabeth, Mary Jane, Margaret Ann and, a son is listed, he must have died very young. In addition they adopted Tom Mellis. I have little else on any ancestors but, do have info on the marriages of the siblings.
