Yes this is my grandfather,John, and great grandfather, Donald. John did move to Saskatchewan in 1902 and took up a homestead. Later he became a grain buyer in three different communities. He married Flora McDiarmid in Saskatchewan in 1910. Flora was born on Shore Street In Bowmore in 1883, the daughter of Archibald McDiarmid and Agnes MacDonald.
I appreciate your help. Thanks.

I think Duich Lotts might be the name of the farm as all the census has the same address Duich Lots
Did the John below end up in Saskatchewan Canada.
This is below 1891 Census for Scotland. John Father Donald is a Crofter and living at the same address with his parents Archibald & Marron 1851 the address is called Duich Muir, but from 1861 Duich Lots ,Ploughman, 1871 Duich Lots Farmer son, 1881 same address Farm servant and 1901 same address Crofter.

Both my paternal grandparents were born on Islay. I have been told about the Island ever since I was very young. Grampa was John Currie, born in 1879 at Duich Lotts. His father was Donald Currie and his mother was Catherine McFadyen.
I would like to locate the farm where he was born and learn a bit about it. On an old map of Islay that I found on the internet I can see two places named Duich. One is located close to Bowmore, a little north and east. The other is located south and east of Bowmore, near the present day airport.
Would anyone know anything about these two locations which would allow me to learn which place was my grandfather's home?
