Murdock McKenzie, my 5th g.grandfather, served with the Guides & Pioneers Regiment of the British Army during the American Revolution and removed to Nova Scotia/New Brunswick in 1783. Provincial records indicate an indenture was file in 1786 requesting the transfer of Murdock's land grant to his daughter, Ann(e), who was 14 at the time and living in New Brunswick with the Elias Wright family, was born in Scotland (prob. Inverness) and who later married James Pratt (my 4th g.grandfather). PRO records in London show that a Murdock McKenzie was on the December 1763 Rations List for the Colonel's Company of the 78th Fraser Highlanders then being discharged in Inverness after service in Canada during the Seven Years War. PRO records and other documentation also indicate that a Murdock McKenzie arrived in Philadelphia in 1775 as a ship's passenger, just before the Revolution. Any information as to whether my Murdock may have served in the "Old 78th" and/or arrived in Philadelphia in 1775 will be most appreciated.
