Help, Have encountered many dead ends in searching for this family line.
I know for sure that the last two generations of this family are spelled
MAC, but there have always been rumors that the old family spelling is Mc.
So many of these are likely Mc in census material or other matters.
John Francis Mackenzie (born-09/22/1915) born in Dominion(?).
Father, Duncan Mackenzie, was born in Cape Breton
Mother, Maude Mackenzie
This family moved back near his family and lived in the Dominion area of
Cape Breton from approximately 1912 until 12-06-1917 when they moved back to
There are family notes that Duncan worked in local mines for a short time,
(Florence #3) was mentioned. Around 1915 until 1919 Duncan served in the

Duncan John Mackenzie with a date of birth of June 12, 1889, born in
Boularderie on Cape Breton. It lists his wife as Maude E. Mckenzie. This
material happened to me by chance but matches the family information I have
so I assume that this is the correct family line. At the time this form was
written, which was July 13, 1916, it shows that his wife was living on
Delams(?) lake, Cape Breton. I cannot find a reference to this lake

They were married in 1888 and lived in Cape Breton.
Elizabeth died 11/11/1906 in Cape Breton, I assume in Dominion.
Great grandfather, Duncan Mackenzie
Great grandmother, Isabella Mackenzie (Beaton)
There was also a few notes that mentioned a Hector Mackenzie that had family
land near Dalem's lake, Island of Boulardarie. It also mentioned a kings
Found a possible family link in 1901 census of Boulardarie with John Duncan
as father and Elizabeth as mother with a Duncan J as a child.
