Richard McGee is one of my brickwall ancestors.  He has been a tough one to narrow down except for his time in Canada.  One of the problems with using the Census of Canada is that he has such different ages listed.  The reason for this discrepancy in age could be that his second wife was twenty three years younger than he.  That is just a guess on my part though.  More research is needed to determine the birth place and parentage of Richard McGee and when he came to Canada.
