Inverness / Re: Maclure dna Glenelg
« on: Wednesday 11 April 18 18:43 BST (UK)  »
I was able to match one Mclure who has a paper trail back to Glenelg.
I am still looking for another to confirm our findings.
I would also like to find someone from Ontario, Canada as it is believed quite a few went there.
Thanks,
Rod

 According to most lists there are no church records for western Inverness- shire and the Isle of Skye earlier than 1793 ( and only two Mclure baptisms from 1793 to 1800)
This is a problem because Angus and Annabell had already left for the new world. You can read about them by doing
Google "family history books" this will take you to a page where you can search for books, enter "Galder" and you will see two books by Donald Keith Dewar.
"Dewar: tracing our family tree" is more up to date than The Mcleors of Galder Glenelg
 There are no sources given in this book just a list of names of the people who had contributed information.

Hello
Thanks Skoosh, that sounds like the right area.
John, the Major John I refer to was born about 1749 and he died 5 May 1826.
He had sons "Red" Angus, Donald ( who died age 2) , Archibald, Alexander and Donald.
Daughters Christina, Kate , Mary, Nancy, Sally, Lizzie.
could this be your family?

Thanks Annie,
good catch. I was looking for a much older Jessie and a much younger Marion.
I am not sure why I couldn't find Hugh

"Lulan" 1848 S.Uist
at least 24 died of 'smallpox' after the sailing to Pictou. They had to be quarantined for something like 90 days.
S. Uist was relatively untouched by this dreaded disease, it is believed to have been brought on board at one of the other stops in Scotland. Pei recorded the names because of a dispute with Nova Scotia over who would pay the head tax.

Annie,
If you have any names or families you want me to check on, I could have a look, especially Prince Edward Island
