Researching two brothers William FINDLAY and John FINDLAY
Can anyone help us find our way around BMD's in Orleans County ?

William FINDLAY (b 1847 Scotland) naturalised US Citizen in 1867
married Mary WYLIE about 1880. Seeking information about
their marriage and birth of first three children
Margaret A (born about 1880 ),
Mabel A (born about 1881) and
William Wylie (born 17 Jul 1886 from WWI Draft papers).
This family moved to Nebraska by August 1889.

John D FINDLAY (b 1849 Scotland) is reported in one book about Greensboro
as 'arriving in 1873'. He was in Scotland in 1871 Census but not there in
1881. He seems to be evident in Greensboro Orleans Co from his marriage to
Susan Harriet YOUNG in 1881. They have several children according to one
family tree which quotes Source as - Elisabeth Austin Hebb, comp. with
additions by Helen Kinsey, "White Family Lineage," p 15.

Can anyone help with verifying this source and the marriage plus birth
details of children from James Howard Young Findlay in 1882 to Maud
Elizabeth Findlay in 1891?

We have full information about both brothers back in Scotland and their
family back several generations.
