Hi Ken.
I have Euphemia Morrison McFadyen the daughter of Finlay Morrison & Effy McTaggart  of Kilchoman parish.  Born 1830c :  She is listed aged 20 with her parents in the 1841 Census at Corsabell in Kilchoman parish.

I am not convinced by data that is not proven and the above is always subject to challenge
Regards Roger


Brown Family (Rodger, James, Roderick), Killarrow, Argyll

Rodger Brown (born 1823), married Janet (Jessie) Bell (1831 - 1896). They settled in Grey County, Ontario, Canada in about 1853.
Roger's parents were James Brown (1798 - 1871) and Isabel Campbell (born 1801).
James' parents were Roderick Brown (born 1773) and Catherine McPherson.  I've been away from the research for quite some time. I may have to get back at it, as perhaps more information has surfaced.

Re: Islay

I have long had a 'brickwall' concerning my g.g. grandparents on Islay, but with the renewed interest and more DNA studies, I'm hoping someone might be able to enlighten me. My g.grandmother, Mary McArthur, christened 14 Mar 1840 at Islay House Farm, was daughter to James McArthur, b. abt. 1805 (Ag lab at Islay House), and Annabella McGilvray (b. abt. 1807), Marriage, 13 Feb 1827 at Kilchoman. Annabella was daughter to Archibald McGilvray (b, abt. 1776, Kilarrow, d. 5/04/1859) and Margaret McInnes (b. abt. 1772, Kilmeny). Archibald's parents were Alexander McGilvray and Marion McTaggart. Marriage, 21 Mar 1773, Kilarrow (names on certificate were 'Alex McIloray and Marrion McIntagart). So far, so good with that.......problem is with the elusive James McArthur. Still trying to find if he was from Islay (marriage certificate says he was from from Kilchoman at time of marriage), and some subsequent census taken says he was. Copy I have of his death certificate ( June, 1866, Glasgow) with info given by widow, Annabella, says his parents were Duncan McArthur and Mary Currie. Can find nothing anywhere, so far to confirm. Roger McWee could not find as to Islay, and have turned up nothing via Scotlands People that might shed some light in a concrete manner. I am not particularly savvy as to computers or research, so hoping someone might fill in some of the gaps in this family, as younger members of my family are now interested in their lineage, for which I am grateful.     Diana Vandiviere

Interesting.   I have a Flora Brown b 1806 married to Nicol Keith in Islay.  They had a son Roger Keith married to  Roger was not a name that had previously been used in Keith family as far as I can see so I am thinking that perhaps an earlier Roger Brown may be linked to both of us

Hi Harry

I have the same interests as you, as my paternal G—Grandparent was a McCalman. There seems to be a lot of confusion when I go back as there is confusion in that line between McAulay and Kennedy!

I will do a little information straightening out so I can put the problem on paper to forward it to you. 
My DNA  test revealed that my closest relative is a Kennedy and I have no written record of the link.

Hi, everyone. 

There are now 177 of us here. Would you like to start a roll call? Just the Islay people's names and places you are interested in.

I am thinking we can also build up a database for the people we are researching.

We can post images too - however - there is an overall size limit for images on free lists here. So be cautious and resize them, please.  I would love to see photos of those we know came from Islay, if we have them.

So, better details.

I’m Dixie Cutler and live in Surrey, BC. I have been researching since 1998 and discovered — among other things — that I do have Islay ancestry although there is NO truth to the tale that my grandfather’s mother-in-law once owned Islay!

Here is what is true:

Colin McCaig, my GG grandfather, born, illegitimate, Bowmore 18 Aug 1831, married 15 Jul 1859 in Pollockshaws, Renfrew, died there 21 Jan 1867

Lachlan McCaig, his father, born Bowmore, 2 Aug 1809, died Colonsay 28 Sep 1889. Colin's mother was Catherine McArthur “native of Kildalton” died before 1859.

Lachlan’s parents were Alexander McCaig (McCaog, McCowaig) born 1761, died 8 Aug, 1843, kill arrow and Florence/Flora McNeil born 1776, died 1836 Killarrow.

Parents of Alexander could be John McCaog & Janet McDougall.
Parents for Flora could be Duncan McNeil and Ann McLennan.

I’m enjoying the GedMatch info but — so far — I ( A650732) am related nobody!
I have public tree on ancestry: Bower Family Tree

I keep a large database of McFadyens, and others as listed below, from Islay.

My Islay connections are via McFadyen, McArthur, McIntyre, Beaton, Taylor, McLachlan, Carmichael,etc

The Angus McFadyen tree, as I now have it,  is as the mcfadyen.pdf file attached.

Regards

Charles MacFadyen Houston b 1943 Glasgow - not related to this tree yet.

Robert Donald Keith 1924-2010

I well remember Robert Keith from Saskatchewan. We met several times when he drove to Ontario to attend Islay descendants' gatherings but also to visit family who still lived in on the 'home' place. He was self taught not only on a computer but also typing so sometimes his correspondence could be a bit challenging. He loved sharing. I admired his efforts.

I realized that I hadn't heard from him for months and started tracking him down. I managed to connect with his sister Wilma and was told he was in a nursing home. Robert and I chatted several times and he was hoping that he would be able to soon have his computer where he was then living. After that I couldn't find him nor could I connect again with Wilma.

Reading Steffanie's post today reminded me again of Robert so I chased down what could be found in Ancestry:

Name: Robert Donald Keith
Gender: Male
Death Age: 86
Birth Date: 1924
Birth Place: Hazenmore, SK
Death Date: 30 Jul 2010

Burial Place: Hazenmore, SK
Obituary Date: 4 Aug 2010

With this new site, I can now share what is found in "A History of Egremont, While We Still Remember, 1840-1983". My first post with attachments so I hope it works well.

Happy hunting!!

Thank you, Sue. I met Robert when he visited Minnesota, trying to make a connection with me and my brother. Neither one of us knew anything about our heritage at that time. I remember he was kind and persistent but we were no help to him. This document is wonderful and helps so much!

Thank you so much Sue.  I corresponded with Robert for a short timebefore he went into the nursing home.  He was steeped in Keith family history.  So many of them made the journey to Canada......I suspect that my 2X great grandmother just could not face making the journey and most of her family remained with her here in Scotland.  I am so pleased to get the attachments from you.  
Cheers
Johan
