        • Name: Elizabeth Linsey Wood
        • Death: 04 Aug 1917
        • Age: 65 b. abt 1852
        • Spouse: George Wood
        • Father: Alexander Mc Kay
        • Mother: Not Known Mc Kay
      • 30 Jun 1870 Census of Providence Ward 8, Providence, Rhode Island, p. 135, dwelling 686, family 1177:
        • McKay, Alexander, 50, grocer (ret), b. Scotland
        • McKay, Grace, 40, keeping house, b. Scotland
        • McKay, Elizabeth, 18, works in hoop skirt manf, b. MA
        • McKay, Agnes, 15, at school, b. RI
        • McKay, Mary, 12, at school, b. RI
        • McKay, Grace, 8, at school, b. RI
        • McKay, Carrie, 6, at school, b. RI
      • 1860 Census (Warwick): 9 year old Elizabeth McKay is living with 41 year old Alexander McKay who was born in Scotland and 30 year old Grace N McKay who was born in Scotland. Can't read Alexander's profession. The transcription for this record claims that Alexander's daughters are also living here: Agnes J (5) and Mary E (2). Again, these pages are VERY hard to read.
      • 15 Aug 1850 Census of Fitchburg, Worcester, Massachusetts, p. 69, dwelling 537, family 611:
        • Alexander McKay, 30, Blacksmith, b. Scotland
        • Margaret McKay, 27, b. Scotland
      • Now, there is some remote possibility that there is a monumental coincidence going on here. On the Elizabeth we know for sure is the right one for us, the RI marriages clearly show that Alexander and Grace are her parents. On the other hand, George Wood marrying Elizabeth McKay Whipple? The time frame is right of course...it is after George Whipple's death as well as the 1880 Census. For shame that the 1890 Census isn't around! I also wish I had a copy of the RI Marriages to view. The marital status (if listed) of the bride would give a lot away. The 'E' for her middle name on that could very easily be a poor transcription.

        • Groom: George Hamilton age 22
        • Bride: Agnes Jane McKay age 21
        • Date: 20 Oct 1875
        • Location: Providence, Rhode Island
        • Groom's Parents: William & Isabella
        • Bride's Parents: Alexander & Grace
      • If I am right and Alexander has two wives, then I believe that Grace and Carrie are Grace N's daughters and Lizzie, Anges, and Mary are Margaret's daughters. I'll work on this some more. I'm also off to work on the Youngs.
