Hi Julie:

We must be distant cousins because my ancestor  Coll Lamont (1786-1861) was the son of  Donald Lamont ( b 1750?) and Janet McEachern ( no firm dates proof from their son's Godfrey's death registration who died 1860 Portnellan).  Donald Lamont ( maybe born c. 1750) is believed to be the brother of your Angus (b 1767)  who died in 1851 in  Mt Forest.  Their father is Angus Lamont who died 16 Dec 1797, buried in  Kilchonnan.  ( Here lies the remains of Angus Lamont tenant in Port-Nellan who departed this life Dec 16th 1797  aged 66 years. This stone was erected by his  son Angus

I am not aware of a connection beyond the fact that Mary Campbell sailed with her husband Neil McArthur on Captain Campbell’s ship to NY. They are on the registry, and I can trace their movements fairly easily once in the US, all the way to Canada where I grew up. I have a fairly extensive family Bible, which has been a great help. I am not aware of an Ann I’m afraid, but these Campbell’s who sailed are probably all related, I would think. I am a stealth researcher, and plan to keep on digging. I have several emails out to others, so will keep you posted.

This has been very helpful Iain thank you! I have found Neil (Neall) McArthur’s and Mary Campbell’s marriage certificate from parish #541 in Kilmeny and their son John’s baptismal record in the same parish. He would have been two years old when they sailed with Captain Campbell to NY. On the baptismal record it records the “place” - presumably where they lived and it’s listed as Ardtallay. Does anyone know is this an actual area on Islay or would this be in reference to the farm there that exists now as a resort? When I went to the farms website, it talks about how it was owned by the McArthurs!

I’m blown away by these discoveries. Thank you all for your help!

Shelley and all

It is my understanding that all available Islay parish records were put on wonderful searchable spreadsheets  by someone and then kept on roots web which then went defunct. Perhaps someone kept the spreadsheets and can share. I used them about 10 years ago to do my husbands Currie/Campbell folks who came to Ontario Canada 1841. Many of the connections have now been confirmed by DNA…seeing cousins on Ancestry DNA matches and on Gedmatch.

I did want the whole group to see it as well, however, as I would love to find family in Islay. I have just begun this leg of my journey - wondering if you have any suggestions. I understand there were not good parish records kept and/or some were destroyed? I’m wondering if there are local genealogists and/or historians that might know more.

Dear Shelley,

                         Being descended from illeachs there is every chance that we are connected, however from your history I can’t see a link to my known family tree. The only Neil McArthur connection is the husband of my Great Grandfather Robert Kennedy’s half sister Mary Kennedy. However this Neil McArthur was not born until 1824 in Islay. Any clues?

Yours Aye,

Hi John,

I believe we are connected. I have been doing similar research for the past two years and have learned much. Charles McArthur was the brother of John and Christine McArthur. Their parents were Neil McArthur and Mary Campbell, and they all came over to NY on the Argyle Patent in 1738. They settled in Claverack, NY and John and Charles fought as loyalists in the Revolutionary War. Charles is my 6th great uncle. His sister Christine McArthur, my 6th great grandmother, married a John Taylor and they had a daughter who was born in Claverack in 1745 named Mary Taylor. The Taylors and McArthurs were a wild bunch. I have quite a bit of information. Mary, my 5th great grandmother, married John MacKenzie, and this is where I hit a wall, trying to trace his line back to Scotland. When the English lost the war, the loyalists were given land in upper Ontario, Canada, and all the McArthurs, Taylors, and MacKenzies in our line migrated there. I have birth and christening records, land claims and grants, handwritten etc. I even have Charles’ military record. This is where the Quebec connection would come in for you. I will try to send you a message as well in case you don’t see this. There are several resources I can share with you. I am also just starting to try to find the origins of Mary Campbell and Neil McArthur from Islay, but old parish records were not well kept from what I understand. Hope to connect soon. Shelley

Re: Roll Call ?

Lorne & Susan Campbell
 

Shelley, are you aware of any connection between Captain Lachlan Campbell and Neall McArthur’s wife Mary Campbell?

Or to Ann Campbell who arrived in 1740, age 15 as a single person and who married James Gillis.

Thanks.

This has been very helpful Iain thank you! I have found Neil (Neall) McArthur’s and Mary Campbell’s marriage certificate from parish #541 in Kilmeny and their son John’s baptismal record in the same parish. He would have been two years old when they sailed with Captain Campbell to NY. On the baptismal record it records the “place” - presumably where they lived and it’s listed as Ardtallay. Does anyone know is this an actual area on Islay or would this be in reference to the farm there that exists now as a resort? When I went to the farms website, it talks about how it was owned by the McArthurs!

I’m blown away by these discoveries. Thank you all for your help!

Hi John,

I believe we are connected. I have been doing similar research for the past two years and have learned much. Charles McArthur was the brother of John and Christine McArthur. Their parents were Neil McArthur and Mary Campbell, and they all came over to NY on the Argyle Patent in 1738. They settled in Claverack, NY and John and Charles fought as loyalists in the Revolutionary War. Charles is my 6th great uncle. His sister Christine McArthur, my 6th great grandmother, married a John Taylor and they had a daughter who was born in Claverack in 1745 named Mary Taylor. The Taylors and McArthurs were a wild bunch. I have quite a bit of information. Mary, my 5th great grandmother, married John MacKenzie, and this is where I hit a wall, trying to trace his line back to Scotland. When the English lost the war, the loyalists were given land in upper Ontario, Canada, and all the McArthurs, Taylors, and MacKenzies in our line migrated there. I have birth and christening records, land claims and grants, handwritten etc. I even have Charles’ military record. This is where the Quebec connection would come in for you.

Re: McNabb family of Ballychatrigan and Lyrabus

Ken Harrison
 

Hello, again, Anne, and Happy New Year!

Just noting a slip of the finger, Andrew and Catherine were born in 1777 and 1779, respectively.

I have their marriage only as Feb 1802, from yourself in 2018.  I see that you’ve now found an exact date – do you have an image of the OPR you could send to me?  (I just noticed that this date is in Ted Larsen’s list, and buried in my notes for a couple of decades).

I also have a note that John’s wife was Mary McDermed.  My notes on this say only “surname from Heather Hutchinson in 2019, with jpg of marriage record”.  If I did ever have this jpg I have lost it.  Perhaps Heather could contact both of us about this.

I have a jpg of the 1871 Oro death register showing the deaths within a few days of Duncan, Mary & Isabella (McCuaig).

Please contact me off-List if you would like to send/receive any docs.

Re: McNabb family of Ballychatrigan and Lyrabus

Hi Anne,
Apparently we are "cousins". I too am descended from Andrew McNabb. His son Finlay (or Findlay) was my maternal grand mother's grandfather. I have not spent much time on John's line because I have found lots of work simply following the main lines of each of my 4 grandparents.
Two Ancestry trees that I Iooked at showed John's wife as Margeretta Mary Warter (b.1824). I can not verify that from primary sources, but have temporarily accepted that while I work on my primary lines. Perhaps that gives you a place to look.
Best wishes. It is always good to meet a new cousin.
