Islay people - McNeill, McDermid, Currie, McGilvray, Ferguson (2 branches who intermarried, just to make it more interesting, lol).

Places: Bowmore, Portnahaven.

Our link to Islay - my husband's grandmother - left for North America in December 1907. She never returned to Scotland.

Hi there

I tried to upload a photo - failed! Then I tried to e-mail Diane - I can't see your e-mail address.  There is a list of 6 people in the member directory.

Thoughts?

Hello Michael,
I am descended from a Mary Sinclair  1775 - 1853 who married Alexander Campbell.  Her father was John Sinclair b abt 1740 married to Catherine McCuaig abt 1755-1811.
I looked at our shared DNA M645852, the biggest porttion was only 4cms on CHR 12.  Interestingly when I look at my DNA links on DNA painter I find that I have links from <1m - 12M as Campbell/Sinclairs.  And you fit within that larger portion.  Hope that makes some kind of sense to you.  As I am not expert on the tehn terms.
Unfortunately an error came up on M143149  My Ged No is A768704.
Let me know what you think
Johan

Hi,
My name is Michael Collins. I live in New Zealand. I have been researching my family from Islay since the mid 1990s. My family from Isaly are:

Duncan Sinclair and Margaret MacDougall. Their son: Duncan Sinclair (1782-1879) of Oa who married Mary MacGibbon (1800-91) daughter of Hector MacGibbon and Janet Blue.

Duncan and Mary Sinclair's son John Sinclair( 1835-1932) migrated to New Zealand in 1860. He is my GG Grandfather. 

My DNA profile is on Gedmatch: M645852 and M143149. I also have a presence on FTDNA and 23andme.com. I have family trees on Ancestry.com and Myheritage.com.

I look forward to connecting with potential distant cousins with an aim of making some headway in our shared heritage which I am sure most on this site will admit is challenging.

Hi. 
I am from Renfrew in Scotland. Lived in NZ many years.
Belonged to the old SCT-Islay list for years and found it invaluable. Main interest is Logan family but other names are Livingstone - Torrie - Carmichael - McKay
My Isaly connection starts my GG Duncan Logan born 1875 and died Emerivale 1958 who left Islay as a young man about 1900 and returned on retirement.   
Going backwards we have ..
Donald Logan 1851-1940
Duncan Logan 1811-1879
James Logan 1782-1861
Robert Logan - dates unknown. Probably born about 1750. I think Robert and brothers(?) David and John may have come to Islay late 1700's from Antrim - or Ayrshire - or Campsie. 
Happy to share anything I have with Islay connections.

The McArthurs are my stumbling block.
I am stuck because there is a huge mix up between the McArthurs and the Kennedys (in my line), so I will watch the replies carefully.

Re: Roll Call ?

javankrona@...
 

Well hello, I just found this group and as it appears this thread is a roll call, I will add my quest.

I am tracing the McArthur’s from Islay, particularly those sailing with Capt. Laughlin Campbell as part of the Argyle Patent. I had for the longest time been at a loss in trying from my lineage, James Law McArthur b. 22July1859 in Lachute, Quebec. I have since stumbled upon the history of the Argyle Patent. With my known history ending in Lachute, Quebec, I believe my family will be in the lineage of Peter (Patrick) McArthur b. 1705 in Islay and Mary McDougal also of Islay, sailing with Laughlin Campbell in 1738 on the Happy Return. I am tracing this line independently, hoping that I will find the link between my family in Quebec and this one from Islay. From this Peter McArthur 1705 Islay, I believe my line with come through Charles McArthur b. 1730 in Islay, also sailing with his parents and two siblings in 1738. Arriving in New York, Settling in Livingston Manor, NY before the Argyle Patent was finally allotted in 1764. From Charles, I expect the line to continue through Peter McArthur b.1760 in New York who married Phebe Lane in Jericho, VT in 1782, making their way to Saint Andrews, Quebec in 1795. I know by the time Phebe Lane McArthur passed in 1852 she had over 200 living descendants. So yes, I find it very probably I will eventually be able to make a definite link to this family in Quebec.

Many thanks to Marion and Charles for their responses! This will lead me further in my research, as some of the surnames listed are ones that I have identified DNA matches with, but had had difficulty in establishing their connections. With any luck, I may be able to establish those links now.

Thanks again!

Stay safe, stay well!

Re: McDougall Islay Connections, with plenty of other links

Chris MacDougall
 

Hello everyone,

I wanted to say thank you to the people who reached out to me in regards to my first message, as it helped to virtually meet a distant cousin, and helped to solidify a lead that my fourth great grandfather's dad was Angus McDugald. Thank you!

Angus looks to have been born around 1753 in Bowmore, and he married Mary McFaidain (McFadyen I believe) in January of 1778 in Kilarrow. Looking over the parish records for that time, it looks like there were three other men with the same spelling of the last name, showing as McDugald. They are listed as Lachlan McDugald, Dun (short for Duncan?) McDugald and Jo (short for John?) McDugald. I am speculating that this group of four individuals were brothers, or at least related, as they are the only four with the last name spelled in this fashion.

Dun married a Margaret King in December of 1776, Jo married an Isabell Brown in January of 1781, and Lachlan married Sarah McDugald in July of 1773. There may have also been an Alexander McDugald, who was married to a Marion McFadian. They are listed as having a child named Christian in 1771.

Any information that someone may have in regards to these individuals is greatly appreciated.

Also, if you know of anyone who is a male MacDougall (various spellings included) whose family has maintained the name throughout their history (carried through the male line), the Clan MacDougall DNA project has begun to generate some momentum, and is offering a free general Y-DNA test to male MacDougalls who wish to take part (at least for the time being). Their website is macdougalldna.org

All the best and stay safe,

Chris

Hi everybody!

My name is Chris MacDougall, and I have a wide range of Islay connections that I have been attempting to put together, with my focal point being Malcolm McDougall (my fourth great-grandfather).

I have connections in my family tree to the surnames Currie, Gillespie, Sinclair, Bell, McNeil, and more.

Malcolm McDougall was believed to have been born around 1786, which was found through the 1841 census records, which place him on Islay. I first have him on Jura, married to Janet McLeod. His first born son was Angus McDougall (1814), who went on to marry Ann (Jane) McLean. He remarried to Catharine Black and they had children on both Jura and Islay. While married to Catharine, Malcolm was listed as the father of what was at the time termed an "illegitimate" child named John. From the Islay census extract for 1841 it shows Malcolm at Ardhala (Kildalton), with Catharine, and the following children: Dougald, Donald, Alexander, Janet and Duncan.
Angus married Ann in 1831, and they are listed at Portnellan (Kilmeny) in 1841 with the following children: Alex, Ann, Flora and May. Angus was the smith during this time.

During the mid 1840s, Angus' family went to Canada, and they settled in the Nottawasaga area, specifically around Collingwood and Stayner. In the early 1900s, some of my family moved to Muskoka, in Ontario, which is where I still live.

I have done various DNA tests through Ancestry and FamilyTreeDNA, so I may have some possible matches that I do not know of. 

I am happy to help in any way that I can based on my family's history, and if anyone has McDougall information to share, I would greatly appreciate it.

All the best,
Chris
