My GGrandmother was a Mary McARTHUR born at Ballanaly, Kilchoman in 1845 – She married Malcolm McFADYEN 1870 in Glasgow.

I keep a large database of Islay folk, amongst others I have been researching  – I am descended Carmichael,   Beaton, Taylor, McFadyen, McArthur, McIntyre, McLachlan, McDonnel etc. all from Islay.

 

My Online database has many Islay family trees but I have excluded anyone recent or who could be living from being shown online to protect their data.

Re: Kildalton baptism 1796 - Duncan McNABB

Ken Harrison
 

Thank you to all the Listers who contacted me, both on- and off-List, while I slept.

Special thanks to the Lister who sent me images!

 

So now – to get back onto a trail cold for over 5 decades, who was Duncan’s father, Donald McNabb?  He seems to have been married twice, once perhaps to a McKay, and to have been born between 1760 to 1780.  Supposedly, he did not emigrate to Canada in 1852 with the rest of the family of McNabbs and Morrisons.

Subject: [Islay] Kildalton baptism 1796 - Duncan McNABB

 

My tree has shown for several decades that my 3xgr-grandfather was Duncan McNABB, born in Kildalton (Oa) and baptized there 3 Sep 1796.  His name and approximate birth info came to me over 50 years ago from other descendants in Ontario who had maintained knowledge of their Islay roots.  I subsequently found data in Ted Larsen's transcript indicating the baptism shown above (3 Sep 1796, Glenastle).  Later, I found in FamilySearch the same data, indicating that it came from FHL film 1041079.

Finally, yesterday I got a copy of the Kildalton baptisms for 1796 (from that FHL film) and there is no sign of Duncan (or any other McNABB!)

Any advice on this OPR?  Is there perhaps a different version of this register? 
The one I have is unusually neat and may be a clean copy, similar to the Bishop's Transcripts in England.
The page has no parish name at the top, but has volume 539/1 indicated.  Was I sent to the wrong OPR?

Does anyone else have this Duncan McNABB (married 1816 to Grace McVORAN or MORRISON) in their data?

Re: Request for Assistance - Mary McArthur

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!

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.

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.
