Making your posts count

 

Hi folks, I'm noticing an issue, maybe a problem in how members are posting. The reason I'm speaking up is that I know it's a bit of work to write a post, and I want each of us to get the most out of that work as possible. The issue is that many people are replying to posts, but rather than being on the posted subject, write about someone, somewhere, or sometime entirely different. Worse, they don't edit the subject line.

Groups.io makes it easy to write a new post, whether you use this group as an email list or as a forum.

Email: every email you get from the group has the following footer (this is mine):

Groups.io Links:

Each of these links will send to https://scotland-genealogy.groups.io/g/Scots, and you will need either to have logged in before, or create one. You don't need a password, although you can create one and use that to login. 

You can click reply in your email client, but then you will experience this problem, unless your reply is really meant to be a reply.

Or you can click new message in your email, or whatever your client calls it (gmail calls it COMPOSE), write your subject line, address it to  Scots@Scotland-Genealogy.groups.io and write your post.

Please take a second to think about which choice will give your post the best chance of being seen by the person or people you want to see it.

I hope you are all keeping well,

Valorie

Hi,

I am following this thread, without so far  having anything meaningfull to add but John Stewart's (b 1803 Kilarrow) parents are wrong, It is wife Mary McCUAIG b 10 Dec 1816 who had parents Donald McCUAIG and Betty (Betsy) BROWN.

John Stewart was 47 and wife Mary McCUAIG 34 on the 1851 Census at Port Ellen so he should be born abt or before 1803/4. Their daughter Mary born Barrhead in 1851 died at Bowmore 10 Jan 1869.

Also, there was a Robert Steward 40 also a Tinsmith at Shore St., Bowmore in 1841 with wife Susanna both born Ireland, makes me wonder if John Stewart was related.

Regards

Charles McFadyen Houston

Hello everyone - I have found from my Scottish ancestry that many women retain their maiden surname even when married which makes tracing them so much easier, Gillie Lomax.

Hi Lola

There is a family tree on Ancestry that state that Hugh Stewart died 1921 in
Campbeltown, Argtll Scot. I have looked up Scotland People and there is a
Hugh Stewart died 1921 Ref no 507/7 age 74. It fits to your man.

Hi Claude

 

I have found quite a few family trees on Ancestry for a Alexander John McLeod b 1879 and DIED in the USA in26 March 1964 with father John. Alex was married to Martha Lellaveve Cole 1901-1967

On the USA death Certificate  it has the information as John Alexander McLeod b27 Sep 1870 his mother as Agnes Ross but the father as James McLeod.

Do  you think this could be your Alexander, if so I could look for more information.

 

Out of all the Trees some have John McLeod born in 1854 Moray Scotland and there are  a few that has his father as James McLeod

 

Hope this helps

Cheers

Claude,
Welcome to the List — I hope you get some help.
A few suggestions:
- put your names and/or places in the subject (if you are replying to an earlier message, change the subject)
- if replying to an earlier message, delete all extraneous words from the earlier message.
To illustrate why, I have done none of the above in this reply and you can see how cluttered it is with an inappropriate subject and previous messages.
If you can keep your messages short and avoid extraneous matter it should help your search.
Good luck!

Thank you !

Your input puts Farquhar death at 1838 which is a help, better than my between 1836 and 1841.
McLeay is sometimes spelt McClay, or Macleay.

Our family story that Farquhar ,the son, and Alexander went to America is still uncorroborated,

Hi Elizabeth

 

I just did a Google search there are a few records on there for a Farquhar McLeay and I  found this message board and the person is Brett Prentice posted 26 Dec 2014. He has Ann Campbell & Ann McLver as the same person, if that is right that would sort out the two families.

 

I am looking for anyone who may be researching Farquhar McLeay who married Ann Campbell McIver in August 1820 in Urral, Ross &amp; Cromarty. They had the following children:- Murdoch, Alexander, Murdoch, Farquhar, Margaret, Ann & amp; Colin. Margaret McLeay married Finlay Fraser in 1855 in Kilmorack, Inverness and remained in Scotland. Story goes Farquhar McLeay (father and husband) died at the age of 42 and his widow Ann left for Australia with several children going with her. If you feel you have any information I would love to hear from you

 

I also read somewhere that the family name could be McLea and later change to McLeay.

 

I have looked at Ann McLeay shipping record so that is right.

 

Cheer

Josephine

Thanks Josephine, Iguess the confusion of genealogists shows here.

My confusion: Ann McLeay, crofters widow, is on the Storm Cloud in 1855, Glasgow to Launceston Tasmania Australia.

With her are son Murdoch, son Colin and daughter Ann.

Ann married MORRISON and they farmed next to Ann McLEAY at Bridport in Tasmania.

Murdoch , mother Ann and daughter Ann are buried in Tas.

Colin went to Victoria, married and had children.

It looks like the two families are actually one, and Ann and the children moved to Kilmorack after Farquhar died.

There were two sons Farquhar and Alexander who supposedly went to America and did not return.

And there was daughter Margaret who married Simon Fraser, probably from the farm almost next door, and had two girls,and their daughter Ann went toTasmania and lived with Grandmother Ann and Aunt Ann, Uncle Murdoch and briefly Colin before he went to Victoria.
Thanks Goldie re the mort cloth, an idea I had not thought of.

Here is a ‘glimmer’ of hope.  See the film for this parish for these years (1838 ish).  The Parish Minister had to keep a record of income and expenses, so often (NOT ALWAYS) you will see a page in the record of marriages and births called Mort Cloth Rentals.  While it won’t tell you what date the death took place it will give the date the Mort Cloth was rented to place over the deceased.

Hi Elizabeth

 

All the family trees on Ancestry have Farquhar McLeay death as 1838 in Scotland but with no place. I have search Scotland people and cannot find a death for Farquhar McLeay either side of that date by 10 years.

There seems to be a couple of families from around the same area that could be connected.

 

This one is Farquhar McLeay and Ann Mclver who had the following

Children,

Murdock Baptism 7/10/1822 in Urray,

Alexander Baptism 21/9/1824 in Urray,

Farquhar Baptism 21/9/1824, in Urray

Farquhar Baptism 14/4/1827, Urray

 

Your family is Farquhar McLeay and Ann Campbell born c1811 Ardacky  Kilmorack, Inverness, Scot.

Children:

Margaret Baptism 15 March 1832 Kilmorack, Inverness, Scotland Film/no 990709

Ann Baptism 28 April 1835 Kilmorack as above

Colin Baptism 8 Dec 1836 Kilmorack same as above.

 

I found a Margaret McLennan married to a Simon Fraser 1870 but I did find a Margaret McLeay married to a Finlay Fraser in 1855 in Kilmorack.

 

Also found a Farquhar McLeay in NSW Police a Probationary Constables 1 Nov 1884 and 1 Feb 1885 police officer shield no 4785. He might be something to do with your family.

 

Hope this helps

Thank you.

My Farquhar married Ann Campbell in 1820 in Urray and my rel Colin is his last born 1836. Ann is listed as a crofters widow in Kilmorack in the 1841 census.

However they did have an earlier born son also Farquhar who we think went to America, not in Kilmorack in 1841.

Interesting also Farquhar senior and Ann Campbell had a daughter Margaret who married Simon Fraser in Inverness and had a daughter Ann.

I do not think this Kiltarlity Farquhar is my ancestor Colins brother, but it is possible, and something to keep in mind . He is too young to be Colins father. Of course ages can be incorrect...

My understanding is the family moved from Blarnabee Urray about the time Colin was born and Farquhar died around then.

Mother Ann  and children Colin, Murdoch and Ann McLEAY went to Australia on the Storm Cloud in 1855. Later Granddaughter Ann FRAZER joined them after both her parents died in Scotland.

So many rePeated  names make it difficult.

He is aged 58 in 1871.
