I wonder if we are cousins--perhaps very distant cousins. I wonder if your McDougalls immigrated first from the Isle of Islay, like mine, in 1739 to the Argyle Patent, in Argyle, Washington county, New York, USA. Then perhaps they immigrated to Ontario as loyalists, like many people did of that political persuasion.
I descend from Alexander McDougall and Catherine McEachron who left Scotland, from Islay, I believe, but haven't found birth documents there, and who settled in the Argyle Patent in Argyle, New York, USA. They immigrated in 1739 with parents Duncan McDougall (son of Dougal) and Janet Calder, plus siblings. They remained in that area, and were Patriots during the American Revolution.
Records show my McDougalls origine in Argyleshire, Isle of Islay, but I don't know exactly which area of Islay they are from. I would love to find documents. Any suggestions?
