Thank you to all the Listers who contacted me, both on- and off-List, while I slept.
Special thanks to the Lister who sent me images!
So now – to get back onto a trail cold for over 5 decades, who was Duncan’s father, Donald McNabb? He seems to have been married twice, once perhaps to a McKay, and to have been born between 1760 to 1780. Supposedly, he did not emigrate to Canada in 1852 with the rest of the family of McNabbs and Morrisons.

Subject: [Islay] Kildalton baptism 1796 - Duncan McNABB
My tree has shown for several decades that my 3xgr-grandfather was Duncan McNABB, born in Kildalton (Oa) and baptized there 3 Sep 1796. His name and approximate birth info came to me over 50 years ago from other descendants in Ontario who had maintained knowledge of their Islay roots. I subsequently found data in Ted Larsen's transcript indicating the baptism shown above (3 Sep 1796, Glenastle). Later, I found in FamilySearch the same data, indicating that it came from FHL film 1041079.
