INGRAM from Niagara Falls Ontario

I am looking to find information from my fathers side of the family. His name was Harry Ingram, born in Niagara Falls Ontario. His fathers name was George I believe? His fathers brother fought in several wars earning a purple heart I believe? His name was James. I believe my fathers father (grandfather) came over from Scotland.


It's times like this I wish I asked my Mum more questions about our family history. Her father, my grandfather was named James Doran. From what I know, he was born somewhere in Ireland, immigrated to Canada and was a railroad conductor in the early 1900's. He moved to Nakina Ontario which is waaaay up north. His wife died during the birth of their 4th. child. The baby also died. His three surviving childrens names were Ernie, Hector and Eileen. He met and married my grandmother who was a teacher in Nakina. She was 20yrs. younger than he. They went on to have three children, Doreen (my mother), William and Lola.
I would love to know anything beyond what I do know!! Thankyou in advance to whomever reads this.....
