Re: John, Joseph and Duncan

Thanks Gail for the complete list - makes it easier to refer ot if I come across something of interest for somebody else -
Here is an update on a few of the many John's and Duncan's I have in my family tree:
I found the John Sinclair (b 1833) I was searching for in Barbreak, Loch Awe, Glenorchy & Inishail.  His birth was not registered but found his marriage certificate, 1898 obit and so far on the 1841, 1851 and 1881 censuses.  John married Christina McIntyre (not registered either but born 1834 to Duncan McIntyre and Christina Cameron).
John's parents were Alexander Sinclair and Janet McLachlan (m 17 Dec 1832 Kilchrenan & Dalavich and 18 Dec 1832 Glenorchy & Inishail).  Alexander's parents were John (yes another one) Sinclair and Flory Campbell (m circa 1785 Kilchrenan & Dalavich).
John Sinclair and Flory Campbell had at least 5 children:
Gilbert c 27 Jul 1786 Kilchrenan & Dalavich
Marion c 5 Nov 1787 Kilchrenan & Dalavich
Archibald c 26 Dec 1789 Kilchrenan & Dalavich
Gilbert (?) c Jun 1798 Glenorchy & Inishail
Alexander c 6 Nov 1898 Glenorchy & Inishail
Alexander Sinclair and Janet McLachlan had 7 children:
John Sinclair b circa 1833 Barbreck, Inishail
Mary Sinclair b 26 Feb 1837 Barbreck, Inishail
Flory Sinclair b 26 Mar 1839 Barbreck, Inishail
Donald Sinclair b circa 1842 Barbreck, Inishail
Gilbert Sinclair b circa 1844 Barbreck, Inishail
Ann Sinclair b circa 1847 Barbreck, Inishail
Dugald Sinclair b circa 1849 Barbreck, Inishail
John Sinclair married Christina McIntyre 1 Jun 1855 Milton Glasgow.  They had 4 children:
Alexander Sinclair
Christina Sinclair
John Sinclair b 30 Apr 1860 - (passed away young or left SCT prior to 1881??)
Jessie Sinclair

Also trying to locate info on Archibald Sinclair (born?) who married Isobella Campbell (born?)
20 Dec 1821 in Inveraray. Used Scots Origin to order MC.  They had five children:

 John b 13 Oct 1822 Inveraray    d 22 Nov 1891 Dunoon
Christine b 16 Dec 1824 Inveraray
Donald b 17 Apl 1827 Inveraray
Archibald b 27 Oct 1829 Inveraray   d 2 Jun 1912 Dunoon
Duncan b 27 Oct 1831 Inveraray

According to Archibald jrs marriage cert in 1857 and 1841 census the family were tenants of Duke of Argyll at Auchindrain.

Take care -

Hi to all!

Below is the compilation of emails regarding the various John, Joseph and Duncan Sinclairs.   I'll continue to post  pertinent emails every two weeks in hopes that  we  will be able to connect or fill in the blanks, unless this is objectionable to others.
