My 2nd great grandfather is James Bruce, born 1835, Cannongate Parish(?), Midlothian, died about 1880 in Kingston, Ontario. He married Elizabeth Aikman, born about 1842, Meadowfield, Duddingston Parish, Midlothian, and is buried in Kingston, Ontario also. They were married 31 May 1864, Duddingston Parish, County Edinburgh.
Elisabeth's parents were John Aikman and Helen Thomson. I have obtained the marriage registration of James Bruce and Elizabeth Aikman from the Government Registry of Scotland, and am trying to locate the registration for John Aikman and Helen Thomson.
In the Bruce-Aikman registration, John Aikman is listed as a ploughman. The registration was witnessed by William Bruce and Agnes Aikman.
I would be happy to forward what information I have if you wish to contact me.
