|I am interested in all the descendents of Duncan McKerracher, born in Scotland about 1773, whose son, William Murdoch emigrated to Canada in 1833.One or more of his 11 children began to change the spelling of the name to McKerricher, or McKerrecher, to reduce confusion at the pioneer post office.|
I am also interested in the descendents of Thomas Carey, known as Deacon Carey, the son of William Kerry or Carey, who was killed on June 8, 1838 near Dresden, Ontario, as an aftermath of the Rebellion of 1837.Some of Thomas's children emigrated to the United States, to Michigan, Kansas, and Missouri.Helen Carey, his great grandaughter is my wife.
We have been to England to research family, and plan to go to Scotland in June 1998 to continue.Will answer all queries.
