Hi Jodie,

Thanks for your reply. I would love to swap information with you.

You will need to post 3 messages to Rootschat before I can send you a personal Message.

My connection to your grandparents is through Hugh's mother's line the McLeods. Hugh's maternal grandfather Niel McLeod was the brother of my GGGrandmother Janet Clarke nee McLeod. Janet and Niel's father John Bain McLeod is also buried at Warrnambool without a headstone

Hi Dale,

Sorry I've been working heaps and haven't had time to reply. Just sitting with mum at the moment going through who's who in the family. I've been able to trace the McSwain side back to my GGGGG grandfather Iain McSwain born 1700 in Scotland, but as yet no further than that. Mum knows a little bit about the McLeod side. Are you after specific information about the McLeods. I'm not sure how this whole Rootschat thing works but I will endeavour to work it out 😄 I'll post a few messages on there so you can contact me.

Jodie

Hi Jodie,

Thanks for the reply. If you put one more message on I think we can then use the Personal messaging.

I am descended from John Bain McLeod and his first wife Catherine McSwain. Catherine had died around 1835 on Raasay and John remarried around 1836 to Flora McIntosh. John,  Flora and children Euphemia, John, Catherine and Roderick came to Australia in 1854 aboard "Edward Johnson".

It is believed the Catherine McLeod nee McSwain was the daughter of Donald McSwain and Anne Gillies. No records exist of Catherine's birth. marriage or death or the marriage of John and his second wife Flora. So unfortunately in many cases much of it is guesswork.

Hope to her from you again soon

Dale

Hi Glenn,

As Roderick and Ann would be our common ancestors that makes us 4th cousins (I think).
I dont have much on Ewen's family maybe because he changed his name. Could you add anything?
eg Ewen's wife and their children.

I would love to know a little more about them.
