The will was dated 10 Feb 1863 and the probate dated 12 Oct 1867. Margaret Anderson Milne, his wife, was listed as a widow (evidently still alive) and Fairly, his son, was listed as already being dead.

The copy of the will is difficult to read but it is clear that John had two more children that were previously not known to me. One whose name was Ellen and the other a daughter named Christiana Milne Land.

Note

From an email (Sept 13, 2008) from Isabella's granddaughter Judy Pickett:

She and George were married Sept 20, 1871 in Wroxeter, Ontario. They had two children: Katherine Georgina (Kittie) Millen (my grandmother), b. 28 Oct. 1877 in Wroxeter, Ontario, and Levida B. (Vida) born 23 Apr 1876.

George died two years after they moved to Grand Forks. He died 2 Feb 1883. Vida died 2 Aug 1903 in Grand Forks. Isabella died 6 Nov 1919 in Prince Albert, Saskatchwan while visiting relatives. She was buried in Grand Forks with George and Vida.

My grandmother married Louis Campbell. Belle lived with them after Vida died. My dad, Ralph Louis Campbell, was an only child. I have several pictures of him with Belle and some great pictures of her as an older woman.
