Hello to both the Old & New Lists for Scottish Genealogy

It has been many years and an email change since I posted my interests initially on Bulletin Boards, then on Rootsweb and my list of names has certainly grown. Apologies to those who might receive duplicate messages, my thinking being if Rootsweb is still going to be searchable I should update that as well. In due course further detail will be posted to the relevant new Rootsweb replacement lists on https://groups.io/

The following marriages took place between 1808 and 1892. Place names seem to be the main ones associated with the various families but no doubt there are other locations.

Ayrshire -  Kilmaurs, Kilmarnock, Tarbolton, Govan/Glasgow.
Robert AULD m. Isabel (or Barbara?) ORR,  William NEILL m. Agnes FINDLAY, Thomas AULD m. Janet NEILL, Agnes Finlay AULD m. Thomas HENDRY/HENDRIE, William Neill AULD m. Margaret McINTYRE

Lanarkshire - Stonehouse, Dalziel, Bothwell, Motherwell, Govan/Glasgow.
Robert AULD m. Catherine McDONALD,  Euphemia McDonald AULD m. James Reid LEAN

Isle of Tiree - Kenovay.
Neil McDONALD m. Euphemia (Effy) MacDONALD

Midlothian - Straiton, Liberton, Burdiehouse, Lasswade.
William SWAN Snr m. Ann HENDERSON

Fife - Torryburn, Crossford, Dunfermline.
James HENDERSON m. Catherine KEIR/KIER - her parents may have been Peter KEIR and Margaret MATHEWSON.

Cheers

Edie - Duncan Campbell, my ancestor, - all of the descendants of that family are through the marriages of their daughters, Katherine (Toothaker), Elizabeth (Rankin), Susanna (Wise), Isabella (Darst) - and one daughter of son Peter (my second great grandfather) and wife Elizabeth Winn - daughter named Emma Maline Campbell married Tallmadge Norwood - Peter's son William Henry died very young in the Civil War .  I have discovered many Norwood matches, but have been unable to weed out any Campbell matches among them.  Only autosomal - no males.  Duncan also had a son named William who migrated into "West Canady" and was evidently never heard from again.  If you want to look further, check out my website at http://www.lynnesgenealogy.com - look at the Norwood files especially the "Pedigree - Family Group Sheet" file.

Hi Lyn,
I am jumping on the band wagon again as one of the surnames coming through for the 9 branches on the McArthur lineage is Campbell.  I ask you as well as another researcher.  Has any of your Campbell males been Ydna tested with familytreedna.  I have two sons and their father tested. One son and his father have  Y111 nine men including the Campbell is still there.I will need to look which location but most are from the Caithness and Sunderland area.  Duncan and Peter are used as sons by our Bounty Immigrant John McArthur who we too are having trouble with.  A DNA test all male line would help but alos autosomal.  We have tests with ancestrycom as well as My Heritage for the autosomal tests also Family Finder and  YDNA with Familytreedna.  It will close the gap a little. I will take a lootk later and see which area the Campbell comes from.  If you have tested and dont match with us that is the answer though isnt it?

Well, I'm behind the eight ball here - my guess that someone has requested a roll call, so I'll add my Scottish brick wall.

My 3rd great grandfather is Duncan Campbell - is there a more common Scottish name?  He arrived in the US around 1800 with a wife, Christiana and daughter Katherine.  I have researched him extensively for years and have found not a whiff of information about his origins other than "Scotland" - not even in his naturalization information.  I went to Scotland - and spent a great deal of time on Scotland's people looking for christening or other family documents that might give me a clue.  Based solely on the given names - I finally decided that he came from the Killin area in Perthshire.  I found a letter from a Peter Campbell about son Duncan (Duncan's oldest son was named Peter) in the Scottish archives in Edinburgh complaining about to the laird about the misappropriation of land.  The family ended up in Radnor, Delaware, OH after stops in Pennsylvania and Licking Co, OH.  This is probably TMI but I'm always hoping that something will ring a bell with someone.

Re: Test

Edie Mc
 

HI Lynne
Thanks very much for letting me view your website Lynne. I am going to put all of my sons and their fathers Y111 matches over, there are only nine men and the Campbell is amongst them.  Only the furthest ancestor of the donors who bear the same surname as their ancestors, not the donors themselves.  It will help our family and maybe anyone out there who have any of the men mentioned.

I wished I was as intelligent as you and could create a website like that.  I will show it to my son who does genealogy and we are both trying to break this wall down.  He is a school teacher so may find the time one day to create a website.

thanks again
Edie McArthur

Roll call of our DNA families, they differ from our surname of McARTHUR, familytreedna tested Y111 markers

Edie Mc
 

Hi,
I am hoping by posting the 9 furthest away ancestors of the nine Y111 DNA matches of my sons and their father, the McARTHUR family all born in Tasmania of scottish descent.  However to date no McARTHUR surname matches.  these are the 9 matches but only four surnames.

Note, these are not the names of the donors, though the donors tohave the same surnames as their ancestors.

Familytreedna tested.  with the genetic distance at the Y111 marker level, some have Big Y and some also have familyfinder

Farquhar MacDonald b1746 Reay, Caithness died 1842,  Genetic distance 8 steps
William MacDonald b1766, Farr, Sunderland,  Genetic disance 8 steps
Alexan ( I think this is Alexander) MacDonald b1779, Halkirk, Caithness died 1883 .  Genetic distance9 steps
Donald Carmichael, Isle of Lismore  Genetic distance 9 steps
Phagen Carmichael, no location mentioned, Genetic distance 9 steps
Murdock Campbell,   no Location mentioned, Genetic distance 9 steps
George William Mackay b1885 and died 1918, Genetic distance 10 steps
John MacDonald of Achscoriciate 1752-1840 Caithness, Genetic distance 10 steps
Mr Daniel Francis MacNeil, Genetic Distance 10 Steps

We have tested with MyHeritage, Ancestry.com both autosomal and All male line YDNA with Familytree maker.  We are trying to find out where our McARTHUR family inherited the name of McARTHUR.   It would appear the MacDONALD are the biggest contenders but even they may have inherited their name from one of the others. I know Heirs and landowners came by some of the names.  Hopefully some one out there may have some of these names say for many generations and then we may get a clearer picture which of these family surnames should be ours.  I realise the McARTHURS may have had that name for several generations but if that were the case we should have at least a few other McARTHUR Donors of DNA.  Our John McARTHUR does not appear to have any siblings as there is no paper trail for any with same parents and we have no marriage to date of  the reputed father Duncan McARTHUR and mother Margaret SMITH (no irregular marriage or proclamation) no location or autosomal match for Margaret SMITH either

Hope someone recognises or knows someone who has these names.  there are websites with them mentioned on google for some of them. Farquhar MacDonald is mentioned. Cant remember the others.

DNA matches to the above Robert,  and Malcolm McARTHUR another son is 67 marker and matches as well but there are more matches and false positves with the lower markers.  the Y111 have flushed many of them out.

Thanks in anticipation

Hello, Josephine.

1. You are one of the few people doing the right thing regarding your
names of interest - (family) names of interest should be put in the
message subject, so that they can be easily found, by people scanning
the message subjects for anything that may be of interest. All
subscribers to genealogy lists, should always do that.

2. You may be interested in the new group that is the replacement for
the Rootsweb Kane mailing lists - see
https://groups.io/g/Kane-genealogy

It is new, and, still getting new members.

If you are inclined, please join it and post an introductory message
there, in addition to here.

The more places in which a fisher casts, the more chance of catching
something.

Re: Two suggestions regarding names of interest

Hello.

I have two suggestions for people, regarding names of interest.

The first, is, when posting a message with the name of someone that you
are researching, put the name in the message subject line, so that
people can easily see it, when scanning the lists of message subjects,
when we are looking for names that interest us; name (best in all
uppercase), place, and, year.

Thanks so much for saying this, Bret! Your subject line is your "advertising" -- especially to those folks who read this group in a weekly digest. Give them something they want to click on! 

The second, is, for each family name that you have, of interest, when
you have posted your message, go to the group web page, and, at the top
of the group web page, you should see a menu item "Find or Create a
Group". click on that, which will take you to a Search web page, and, do
a search to find whether a group exists for the family name; if so, join
it, and post a message also to that group, about your person/people of
interest, related to that name, if you have not already.

And, remember - we who are migrating Rootsweb lists to groups.io groups,
are doing this on an ongoing basis, so, I am currently doing it at the
rate of two or three a day, and, with other Rootsweb List Administrators
doing this, the name groups are being added to, daily, so, it is worth
checking weekly, if not daily, to find whether your names of interest,
have name genealogy groups, at groups.io .

As a single example, the Rootsweb Kane mailing list, got migrated to the
Kane-genealogy group, in the last day or so.

The more places that a fisher sets a line, the more chance of obtaining
a catch, and, the potential to catch more.

Another good point. I have a number of surname lists too, and they are an excellent way to find cousin researchers. Locality lists are great because local people know the land, people and records. Surname lists focus on the family group through time and migrations. So they are both worth "fishing" in. 

Fish in all the ponds!

NICOLSON of Isle of Skye Scotland. Also ROSIE of Scotland.

Ian and Margaret Kelly <i_m_kelly@...>
 

Hi,

I am researching my mother’s ancestors the NICOLSON family of Glenmore on the Isle of Skye.

Parents are Murdoch NICOLSON & Mary MORRISON of Glenmore.

They had five children as under, all born on Skye.

Kenneth b. 1820 (no information)

Allan b.1821 married Marion MACLEOD and emigrated to Canada 1862.

Catharine b.1823 (no information)

Archibald b.1828 married Margaret MACLEOD and stayed on Skye.

Murdoch b.1834 married Marion MCINNES and emigrated to Australia 1858.

 

I am also interested in contacting anyone researching the ROSIE family of the Aberdeen/Ellon area.  I have Margaret Macleod (Rita) Nicholson marrying George ROSIE in 1934.

 

Thank you,

Ian Kelly, Queensland, Australia.

I have also found a middle name associated with a very close friend who was a neighbour (found by accident on a census). You may want to examine the census listings for 1851/61/71 and see if any of the neighbours of James' parents had the surname DALLAS.  Yes, its not likely, but I guess you are looking for any line of enquiry.
I did wonder about it being the name from a friend but I couldn't see a way of finding out - your suggestion may be the proverbial needle in a haystack but certainly worth a look,

Re: NICOLSON of Isle of Skye Scotland. Also ROSIE of Scotland.

Joan Smith
 

I notice you have Nicholson and Macleod going to Canada. I have a James Nicholson b.1826 and a Effie Macleod b.1836 coming from Scotland to Canada. They settled on P.E.I. It had to be around the early 1860s because my ggrandmother was born in 1864 on P.E.I. and her oldest sister was also born there. It seems the Nicholsons and Mcleods married each other often. The only thing I don't have are the parents of either James or Effie. I just know that they married in Scotland and then went to Canada. Would you have anything on the couple.

The island of Lismore is the only Lismore listed in the Ordnance Survey Name Books (1850s).

However it makes up a united parish with Appin, on the adjacent mainland, so it is just possible that someone unfamiliar with the geography might get a bit confused.

Hi

Thanks for useful information.  Can you tell me if the Lismore is the Isle of Lismore or are they close, the males in my family have a DNA location as the Isle of Lismore, one of three locations.

Thanks
Edie McArthur

        Now that the Rootsweb Lists for Argyll and Inverness-shire are closing this is a good time to remind the old users of those Lists, and those who have since joined this, of the Parishes covered by the Lochaber & North Argyll Family History Group. The Group has a Facebook page.



        The Group covers the Parishes in (north) Argyll which were subsumed into the Highland Region with the re-organisation in 1974, and those in Inverness-shire in Lochaber.
