Looking for Hugh Charles McLean siblings
« on: Tuesday 09 July 19 06:39 BST (UK) »
Looking for Hugh Charles McLean b. Oct 31, 1832, North Uist, Scotland.   He married Rachael Brown at Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia.    I have all the census records regarding his family after he marries. I am looking for HIS siblings, and parents. Many family trees say his father was Donald McLean, unknown mother.  In the census records he does not use the middle name of Charles- just Hugh McLean.  Two siblings may have been Mary Ann, Sarah (Marion.).Any help with this family appreciated.

Yes- looked at the Scottish site, but need the sibling info when the family came to Canada. I cant find any birth record for the year 1832 either.

Yes- have done extensive research on Ancestry. There are 2 families with similar names that are constantly being mixed up. I have a letter written by my gggrandmother to Hugh McLean saying he is the brother of her aunt MaryAnn McLean, and that they need to settle MaryAnns estate since she has died . Hugh and Rachael were living in Sydney Mines, NS. Another of his sisters was Sarah ( Marion) McLean who married Alexander McDonald.This family lived near Balls Bridge/Creek, NS.
