Isabella's husband, James Bain, was my great-great-grandfather's brother. Thomas Middleton Bain and his wife Margaret Campbell emigrated to Nova Scotia, Canada around 1854 with 2 children - Daniel born 1851 and Margaret born 1853. Margaret died at sea. I don't know the name of the ship. I am interested in any photos of them or Thomas' parents - Donald Bain and Christain Urquhart. Comment left on 30 July 2013 at 22:14 by Marilyn Giles
