|I am working on my family tree and trying to pull together lost branches.In my fathers generation, we lived in Huron County, Clinton, Ontario. Prior to that we are from Whycocomagh Area, Cape Breton Island. Archibald Macdonald was born there in 1830and his wife Jane Macdonald (maiden name also) in was born in 1837. Show up on1871 Census for Inverness County, Whycocomagh Division No. 1 (pg 46) Children were Donald (10 yrs, Archibald (13), John James Edward (9), Annie Margaret(7), Jane (5) and John Calvin (3). Archibald's Mother Ann (63) and brother Ranald (28) (could be Donald as difficult to read) lived with them. Calvina and Peter were born later.Jane' family emigrated in 1822.They were Allan Macdonald sonof John and wife Mary MacLean came from North Uist and lived in Stewartdale.Allan and Mary were parents of Alexis who married John Dunlap and moved to Ontario. -Hastings County. The others married and lived locally inInverness county. Archibald's family emigrated in 1827. His father Donald and wife Annie Morrison emigrated from North Uist with his widowed mother and brothers Allan m. Sarah McPhail, Angus, Alexander and John and sister Margaret.Brothers live in different areas. Donald stayed in Whycocomagh. Date back toArchie "Red Archie" son of John,son of Colin. All from North Uist, Scotland Arhie lived at Hoogary.|
Would like to find family of 1. Great Uncle Peter son of Archibald and Jane and his daughter Jane Head and children.2. Lou Finch Beecheler's daughter was Mary Lou and she married George Church who had children from an earlier marriage.They lived in the Flint, Michigan area.
On my maternal side, I am trying to locate the Garrard, Nash,Hale, Redhead, and Lineham families. George Nash lived towards the end of the 1800 and was a steel magnate with a place on Lake Champlain, Vermont. His daughter was Marguerite.George was married to Belle Marshall.
Any help in locating any of these connections would be much appreciated. I am also willing to share information.
