Donald W Smith & Jennet McIntosh
« on: Saturday 10 October 20 20:22 BST (UK) »
Hello, I am trying to find information on my 3rd great grandparents who emigrated from Scotland to Mt Thom, Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1801:  Donald W Smith and Jennet Mc/MacIntosh.

I believe Donald W Smith ca. 1776-1843 was from Rannoch, Perthshire, Scotland.  I am not quite sure where Jennet McIntosh ca. 1772-1852 was from -- most likely Perthshire too but maybe roots in Invernessshire.  Donald W Smith was one of the first landholders and farmers to settle at Mt Thom.  He and Jennet raised 5, possibly 6, daughters - Sarah b. 1804 married Andrew Creighton originally from Dumfries (my line); Nancy b. 1806 married Abiel Brown, Gracietta b. 1816 married Alexander Morrison, Abigail b. 1817 m. John Sinclair (he emigrated 1831) ; Elizaabeth b. 1798 Scotland m. Donald Munro; and ?Jennet?.

I know there are a lot of Smiths but am hoping someone might recognize this family!!

Thank you.
