Re: Sinclair/McDougall

Congratulations on your breakthrough!

I just want to check a few things with you.


Catherine: I show her married 1808 in Kildalton to John Smith.  Can you verify?


John: in 2006 you wrote that “I have a John McDOUGALL b. 1771 Islay at Grastle, the Oa, Islay. They immigrated to Ontario, settling in Thorah Twp., Beaverton, ON circa 1832.   His wife was Christina McDOUGALL (nee), b. 1794, also Grastle.  They brought 8 children born over 18 years, none named John.”  This latest info shows him to be 12 years younger than you thought earlier.  Have I understood this correctly?


Peter: have you any details about the other names for him (Angus & King of Egypt)?  I show him married to Margaret McCuaig, from Kintra, Islay – can you verify?


Allan: new to me.  Do you have any more details?


Mary: she is new to me.  I have John’s children as Christina 1812, Margaret 1818, Flora 1820, Catherine 1823, Elizabeth 1826, Marion (Minnie) 1829 & Alexander (no date).  Where does Mary fit?

For Alexander McDOUGALL and Christina Sinclair, I have these children


Catherine McDOUGALL


John McDOUGALL 1783, Grastle, (Grastill) the Oa, Islay. D. Jul 1871, Thorah Twp., Beaverton, ON I have him married to  a Christina McDougall. Tombstones in the Old Stone Church in Thorah. Stopped there on the way home from our Islay Gathering. Time well spent.


Peter "Angus" (King of Egypt) McDOUGALL, Sep 1780, Grastle, Islay Argylshire, Scotland, D. 01 Jan 1869, Old Stone Church, Thorah; Cemetery transcript for Old Stone Church Cemetary says "Jan 2, 1869 aged 88 yrs. Native of Islay; 'Jesus has called our father home, His flesh lies mouldering in this tomb. God grant his offspring may be blessed and then meet him in eternal rest.'


Allan McDOUGALL, 1781, Grastle,


This John 1783 is my ggg, my gg Mary McDOUGALL’s father. She married Malcolm CURRIE. His first wife had died in Childbirth on the 5 acre lots in Duntroon. He went back to Thorah and told them there about her death. This young Mary said she would raise his child. They could not live together so they had to marry.
