I'm looking for any information about John Alexander McLeod, my great grandfather, but also looking for info on his father Alexander McLeod and his mother.
John Alexander McLeod was born 1856 supposedly on the Isle of Skye, emigrated quite soon to Prince Edward Island with his family.Son of Alexander McLeod. (all according to my late grandmother Christina McLeod, daughter of John.)
1881 Canadian Census shows an Alexander McLeod, b. 1819 Scotland, farmer; wife Annie McLeod, b. 1827 Scotland; John A. [A for Alexander in our family tradition, if this is the right record] McLeod, son, b. 1856 Scotland, Farmer; Norman McLeod, son, b. 1858 Scotland, Student; Mary McLeod, b. 1859, PEI; Annie McLeod, b. 1861, PEI; Christie McLeod, b. 1863, PEI; James McLeod, b. 1865, PEI, listed as Farmer's Son.
John Alexander McLeod married Nellie Caroline Flory, b. 1876 East St. Louis, Mo, on 14 Jan 1897 in the First Presbyterian Church in Baker, Oregon, U.S.He died in May 1939, I assume in Oregon.Before his marriage he supposedly travelled extensively throughout Canada, Alaska and the Western U.S.
I'm eager to hear from anyone who might be descended from or have any information about this Prince Edward Island McLeod family; I assume (perhaps somewhat naively) there may be those still in P.E.I. that are related.
