Re: McFadyens in Lornesville, Ontario

Charles, I was born in Toronto in 07/01/1932, father Donald, born in Port Ellen 1892.  I remember two trips North to Lornesville to visit Dad's two relations Sarah and her batchelor brother who's name escapes me.   One visit was memorable as Dad ran over a skunk!!!   I remember playing with the water pump and a big pumpkin.   After we returned to Glasgow at the end of 1936, Sarah sent me comic sections of Canadian papers which I enjoyed.   
I wish to find out where they are  connected to my family tree 

Regards,
Alasdair

Hi Diane/All,

Hello and best wishes to everyone!

My interest is with McFadyen, McGilvary, Morrison, McEwan - I believe mainly from Bowmore

My great grandparents are: -

Hugh McFadyen: B 1835 - D 1907 / Elizabeth Morrison - (photo attached): B 1841 - D 1922. Both born in Bowmore but moved to Dumbarton and then Clydebank. Hugh's brother Donald was the Post Master at 'old' Bowmore Post Office, now a private residence and to the left of The Lochside Hotel on Shore Steet - 2 x photos attached

Hugh and Elizabeth had 8 children?: John, Catherine, Euphemia, Flora (my grandmother), Elizabeth, Mary Anne, Margaret, Angus - oldest, B 1862 - D 1929

Hugh's parents were: Angus McFadyen and Anne McGilvary / Elizabeth's parents were: John Morrison: B 1791? - Dead at 1851 and Margaret (or Anne) McEwan: B 1801

Note: Many of the above dates are from 'scribbles' and need to be verified

Thank-you to everyone involved in getting this up and running - I will follow with interest

Roll Call - McMillans, MacNeills, MacDonalds, McNabbs of Kilarrow/ Bowmore

JandS O'Donnell
 

Hello All,


I haven’t been actively researching recently due to grandparenting duties, but my gg grandmother Ann/ Annie McMillan was from Bowmore, born around 1835/6. She married a John McPhail in Glasgow, but after 9 years of marriage and no children , he died in 1871. Less than 2 years later she gave birth to my g grandmother Mary Fraser McMillan, who was always known as Mary McPhail. I have no way of knowing who her father was. I have attached Mary’s photo, with her children, including my grandmother.
I have also attached the family tree , in case it is of any interest, showing Mary’s ancestors in Islay. ( The blue boxes show marriage dates. )  Although I researched the McPhail side they are really not connected to my family.

The main families I’m researching therefore are McMillans, MacNeills, MacDonalds and McNabbs - all of Kilarrow in late 18thC.

Hi,

I am researching Duncan Fletcher (appears as James Duncan Fletcher on his marriage record)  born c 1831 Islay. He may be associated with the Fletchers in Octomore.

He married Mary Gillies (GIllis) in Ontario in 1856.  She was born 1834 on Islay and believe she is the daughter of Charles Gillies and Margaret MacArthur.

My ancestor Lachlan McKinnon (1769-1824) a tenant on Kynagarry Farm married Isabella MacMillan (1759?-1861) in the daughter of Archibald MacMillan Of Tockmal, Oa in the Parish of Kildalton.   If you would like to see it I’d be happy to send you all that I know of both of them and a few photos of the remains of Tockmal taken in 2010.  I also have a photo of Lachlan’s gravestone in the grounds of the old Kilmeny church.  So I don’t push the size limit for images on this site I’m happy to send the information directly to your private email address.  My address is john.mckinnon@...

Hi
 
I am Anne (McNabb) Farrar. My ancestors from Islay were tenants in the Oa. Andrew and Catherine (McMath) McNabb were born in the 1770’s and married at Kildalton in February of 1802. In 1830 2 of their elder sons Andrew and Duncan arrived in Canada and in 1832 they took up land in Oro Township, Simcoe County Ontario. Over the next 20 years a total of 6 sons and a daughter all moved to Oro Township. Most of the children had married in Islay and some had several children when they arrived in Canada.
 
Surnames include McNabb, McMath (Matheson), McEachern, Morrison, Woodrow, McCuaig

Roll Call ?

Lola Cook
 

My ancestors are: Stewart, McEwing/McEwen/McOuin; Brown; McTaggart; McCaig/McCuaig; Wallace; Stevenson; McGeachy; Gilchrist

Archibald McEwing, born btwn 1730-40, married Katherine McTaggart in Kildalton on Dec. 21, 1759. Son John McEwing born 1761 in Kildalton, married Janet McTaggart on Feb. 7, 1790.
A son John born 1807, married Flora Stevenson, daughter of Neil Stevenson and Catherine McTaggart, about 1825. Child from the marriage was Joseph McEwing, born July 24, 1828 in Killallan, died Jun 14, 1888 in Campbeltown, Argyll. Joseph married Mary Wallace, daughter of John Wallace and Margaret Gilchrist on Dec. 13, 1853 in Campbeltown. Mary was born on Jan. 6, 1829 in Killean. A child from this marriage was Catherine McEwing, born March 10, 1857 in Campbeltown, died May 18, 1921.
Catherine married Hugh Stewart on Dec. 1, 1885. Hugh was son of John Stewart and Mary McCaig/McCuaig. Hugh was born in August 1846 in Easdale. Mary McCaig was daughter of Donald McCaig and Betsy Brown. John was a Tinsmith.
Hugh & Catherine had a son, Robert McEwing Stewart, born July 25, 1886, died July 25 1958 in Winnipeg, MB Canada.

Hugh Stewart is my “brick wall”. He was my paternal grandfather and I want to know where and when he died. After a hasty marriage to Catherine, he seems to have disappeared. I have early records of his life….he was a Masons Labourer. At age 17 he joined the army, 73rd Foot, and served long enough to have a Chelsea Pension. I’ve been unable to find any further record of his whereabouts and his death. Any help most appreciated!!

Hi folks,
 
I’m sure you all have a hundred or so messages titled re: Roll Call? To help everyone in finding pertinent clues to their own tree may I suggest you title each message with a hint to its content.
Eg if you are responding to a message about a person, family, location put that in your subject!
 
I am finding it difficult to collate hints in other’s e-mails and they are important so please put the subject of your response on your e-mail!!
 
Thanks

Re: Suggestion

Ken Harrison
 

And I notice that a high proportion of the replies are posted without the message to which they refer.  Especially when the subject line is incorrect, this makes such messages almost useless.
This seems to happen when replies are sent using the links at the bottom.  The only way I could find to include the original on this is to use “reply” in my mail system.
