A marriage record for Emily Rankin and John Lees Alma has not been found. They are both from Ireland and their daughter Mary Catherine Alma was born in Ireland.

NoteAs shown under the notes for husband John, Emily is with her family on the SS Brittania that sailed from Liverpool to New York City and arrived there in June of 1832. The family is shown as being destined Canada. Her age is shown as 29. This agrees with the next record that we find for her which, sadly, is the inscription on her gravestone in St. Mark's Anglican Cemetery. This dates her death to 21 June, 1841, and gives her age as 38. This agrees with her age as shown on the Brittania's passenger list and dates her birth to approximately 1803.

Daughter Kate's death registration, information provided by a niece, shows Emily as Mary and the place of birth for both parents as being Ireland. We have little else to work with.
