I am trying to find information on Stotts in Ireland with a son born in late 1700's and no later than 1800. Senerio 1: The son emigrates briefly to the US where he meets and marrys his wife. Then emigrates to Leeds County Ontario Canada where his son Peter Stotts is born in 1825. Senerio 2: the son emigrates to Canada straight away. The only thing I have to go on is Peter Stotts born btwn 1825-1831 Leeds County Ontario Canada, married Jane Cummings of Ireland. In the 1861censusthere was a Betty Stotts age 64 living with him and I am presuming "Betty" is short for " Elizabeth" and she is Peter's mother. My grandfather says his family originated from Ireland and Peter is the last of the line I can find in Canada so I am now searching Ireland for more information. Thanks.
