James BARTON of Roucan, Scotland, born c1739, my DNA family name

Edie Mc
 

Hi,
I would be interested in hearing from anyone belonging to this gentleman. James BARTON, born 1739 Roucan, Dumfires, Scotland. My brother has a 5 step match with him on Familytreedna. His information can be found on this database.

https://www.bartondatabase.com/getperson.php?personID=i52607&tree=gbtree

I too have a match with some of his descendants though I do not know where they fit in but I have a 194 cm match with a lady on ancestry.com and we share William Robert BARTON 1829 at Alverstoke, Hampshre and his wife Anne BOGUES. I have a match with both of them. I am missing a great grandfather as William had several sons and my gt gf was one of them. My grandfather was born Edward Ernest PLACE born in Rochester Kent and through DNA I discovered my great grandfather Frederick Hugh PLACE 1874 was not Edwards natural father. My GT GM Edith Ann REED married Frederick when 8 months pregnant. Since then I have found all my family members who have DNA tested are matched to many folk with BARTON DNA. On the FTDNA front my brother has this James BARTON of Roucan, Dumfires 1739 and that is the furthest back so far anyone has given as furthest back ancestor on FTDNA. William BARTON father Samuel was also from Scotland and another Ireland. They are all mentioned on the database.

Is there anyone on this list belonging to his family please.

I do have a nice story from ancestry.com match had put up on her public page, along with photos etc, so that side of the family is okay, but it would be good to get a little on this fellow.

It would also be great if more of you males on the list would think about having your direct line YDNA tested as there is a shortage of males doing the YDNA. Autosomal on ancestry is good for complimenting the YDNA as you can usually pick up and connect family from both tests.We have up to Big Y but the Y111 i the most useful unless you are an expert and do th Big Y. We are not experts. We went from the Y67 markers with 44 matches and after upgrading to Y111 111 markers we got rid of the false positives and down to 9 men of four surnames belonging to the same lineage on my childrens fathers side of the family. Three surnames on my own side of the family so worth doing the Y111. You get to see results of all the other markers. Y111 narrows it all down.

Thanks

Charles Campbell 1787?

extonview@...
 

I seem to have hit a wall when it comes to ancestors in Islay.  My grandfather was Alexander Campbell b.1872, illegitimate.  His mother was Janet Campbell and his father was down as Alexander McDonald.  Janets father was William Campbell b 1824, from Kilmeny on Islay.  His father appears to be Charles Campbell and his mother Christina Campbell (Campbell), both late 1700's.  I can find no info on either of them so if anyone has come across them or any suggestions etc.  would really appreciate it.

Not sure if there’s a Newcastle/Gateshead one, but there’s certainly one for Northumbria at io.groups.

If you go to your io.groups home page (via the subscription link below I expect), you can search for

groups of interest.  I’ve found most of the old groups I use seem to have migrated to io.groups by now and

functionality is good. None for Argyll, but then there’s this one and various Argyll facebook pages that

work well for me.

 

Apologies for the delay in replying; responding to the daily digest.

Clan MacDougall

bqbarnard@...
 

My ancestor, Alexander Campbell, left Islay around 1774 as a child, and most of what we know about him comes from his will, which states he was born in Kildalton and suggests he traveled to Johnstown NY with John Carmichael, also of Kildalton, who was some years older. The one other piece of information about him came from his granddaughter, who was my great-grandmother, Jennie Campbell Jones. According to my great-grandmother, Alexander's family was tied to Clan MacDougall. I'd be intertested in learning more about possible ties between Islay and Clan MacDougall.

Re: Clan MacDougall

J LOCHRIDGE
 

Interested in your Alexander Campbell who left Islay in 1774.  My  ancestor Alexander Campbell born Killarrow Islay in 1771 didn't leave Islay but it would be good to know if we share DNA?  I have my results on Ancestry and on Gedmatch.  Sorry I can't help with the Clan question, except that the name McDougall was also McLugash in Islay sometimes.
Regards
Johan

Thanks again

Hi folks, this group has a wiki, and each of us can add and edit it, upload files as well. If someone wants to begin gathering links to maps and put them onto a wiki page, I encourage you to do so. These assets are available in each subgroup as well! 

We don't have enough storage to upload maps and such, but links take up very little room. :-)

All the best,

Hi Bob,
No I dont know if there is a list for Gatesheqd, Newcastle but can tell you I lived there on a working holiday for four months in 1998 and Newcastle Library have a great Reference Library. I spent a lot of time there, four times a week. They even have a copy of the Times newspaper on microfilm there and a set of the BMD Civil Registration fiche. amongst other records, that may be handy to you.

Re: Charles Campbell 1787?

Edie Mc
 

Hi,
I cannot really help you but wonder if he may have been the William Campbell who fathered an illegitmate daughter born at Cambuslang in 1850.  Her mother was  Isabella Stevenson, who was born at Cambuslang, Lanarkshire.  the daughter was Christina Stevenson Campbell. I have no idea where William Campbell was born. The name Christina may have come from Isabellas mother Christina though.

Isabella left Lanrakshire and worked in Renfrewshire till she came to Tasmania wihtout her daughter who lived to the age of 28 after giving birth to four children.  She married Robert  Black of Campsie, Stirlingshire. We only found out about her two years ago when someone  was curius who she was and did a bit of sleuthing.

Hi,

I am trying to contact descendants of Norman Macaskill Nicholson (1910-1993) and his wife Joan nee Bradley who used to live at Pitlochry near Blair Athol.  Both are now deceased.  They had four children – George, Winston, Mhairai & Sarah.

Thank you,

Surname interests

Julie Ryde
 

Hi All, my surnames are Potter, Crow, Lang /Laing and Wilson mainly from around West Lothian ( Uphall, Livingstone, Whitburn, Bathgate) My 2x great grandfather married Marion Laing and their son James married Elizabeth Robertson Crow. They emigrated to New Zealand with four children in 1902. James had been an overseer & Joiner at Calder House in Mid Calder. I am not sure why they came here but maybe for a better life.
Regards
Julie


Daniel and Jennette McArthur of Islay

Robert McArthur
 

I’d like to hear from anyone with knowledge about my great-great-great grandparents Daniel and Jennette McArthur, who emigrated from Scotland to North Carolina in America in the 1770s. They claimed to have come from Islay. Although there is abundant information about their descendants, I know nothing of their background, and to date I have not identified any of their Scottish ancestry. A few years ago Roger McWee told me he had found some data on Daniel, but no information linking him to any farm or town. I frequently receive Family Tree notifications of y-dna matches, including some strong Nordic, Isle of Mull, and Scottish mainland matches, but so far nothing with a definite link to Islay, and nothing identifying a common direct ancestor. I have seen trees indicating that Daniel’s parents were named John McArthur and Jean Hair, but no supporting evidence of that. Family Finder has been useful in helping me find some relatives, mainly distant cousins here in America. I have uploaded my dna information to Gedmatch (kit T894735) and am in process of deciphering the match information in that database (looks like a long learning curve).
