Re: Request for Assistance - Mary McArthur

Nancy Olson
 

Thank you to Sue and Iain for letting me know that I was heading in the wrong direction with my research.  Sadly, that puts me right back at the "brick wall" with no idea where to go from here because I have such limited information to work with.  Do you perhaps have any suggestions or possible resources that could help me find a Mary McArthur born in 1820 on Islay that emigrated to Canada sometime between 1820 and 1849?  Smile  Oh well, I'm afraid I may never get past this brick wall.  

Thanks again for your help!

Nancy

This is not to say that this is correct – another person’s research which could be wrong but it does give you another direction to consider chasing.  Finding Mary and John’s marriage would help as it hopefully gives Mary’s parents’ names.

Hello.  This is my first time requesting assistance/input from this group.  Thank you in advance.  Wondering if anybody is familiar with Mary McArthur christened in Kildalton on 10 February 1820 - parents Niel McArthur and Rose Kelly?  I have been at a brick wall researching my great grandmother for years.  All I know is that "my" Mary McArthur was born on Islay in 1820 and immigrated to Canada (most likely first to Montreal and then to Quebec City).  I'm not sure when she immigrated, but it was definitely sometime prior to 1849.  Would be very appreciative to get any information anybody might have about the Kildalton born Mary McArthur so I can rule her in or out as a possibility with my research.  
 
Thanks so much.

Re: John Murdoch + Islay emigrants

Hello Candy,
If it helps, in the book "For the People's Cause", it says that John Murdoch was born in Lynemore in the Nairnshire parish of Ardclach on Jan. 15, 1818.  He was the second child and eldest son in the family of 9 children born to John Murdoch and Mary MacPherson.

Thank you to those who responded regarding "Torrantungary", I'm trying to get a photo of it onto my computer so I can send it.  It used to be so easy with my old camera and old computer.  Like them, I'm feeling like a Neanderthal.  Please bear with me while I try following the instructions backwards or upside down.

Hello everyone,

 

I am hunting down a McDougall/Currie link, and I am wondering if any of you might have these people in your respective trees, plus further information.

 

Euphemia (Effie) Currie married Hugh McDougal at Kilmeny in 1855, and they had a daughter named Anne in 1860. There might be other children, I am not sure.

 

The other items I am not sure of are Hugh's parents and Effie's parents. As everyone well knows, the number of McDougalls and Curries on Islay makes this extremely difficult to follow. My own Jura McDougalls went to Islay in the 1840s, also muddying the waters a bit.

 

Any information, or leads for me to research further, that you may have regarding Hugh, Euphemia (Effie) and their children would be greatly appreciated.

 

Many thanks and all the best,

 

Chris
