I am trying to find out more about the family of George Michie who died on 31 Jan 1866.His will gives the following information:
George Michie, d 31 Jan 1866 Brother James Michie - Scotland Nephew John Michie Nephew Henry Michie - Fergus, Upper Canada Nephew James Michie - Toronto, Canada Niece Sophia Michie - Toronto, Canada Niece Jane Michie - Scotland Niece Euphemia Michie - Fergus, Upper Canada Sister Isabella Michie (m. ?

Can anyone help please with dates and perhaps who George's parents were?An entry in "A History of Toronto and County of York", published in 1885, for James Michie also gives some information on George. Searches in the IGS and Scotlandspeople have provided me with some additional information but do not show this as one family e.g. Mary Ann who married John Grassick appears to have a maiden name of Forbes or more properly Masson.Nor do these sites show a George Michie with this entire list of siblings.All those listed received bequests and their relationship to George is given. I shall be most grateful for any help and suggestions.
