I am on the hunt for an Abinsam McKay who was referred to as "A. McKay Knowles" at her sisters wedding to Wilbert Ormand Rowan in Toronto on October 17 1895. This would indicate that her marriage occured some time before this. I have had no luck tracking this down. She was the daughter of Hugh McKay and Sarah Sophia Brown McKay (Sadie) She was born in England in about 1871 and arrived in Canada27 October 1874 with the following siblings John Edward B: england Sarah Sophia B: Bermuda Catherine Caroline B: Bermuda Abinsam, Abinoam, Abby, Ainoan, Abonsen ???was born in England Remaining siblings born in Canada Mary Anne Ruth Joseph Hugh Robert Rebecca Martha May Ida This family is found in the 1881 census living in Guelph but later relocates in part to Toronto.
Does anyone have a connection? All help appreciated Leslie
