Hi Juli, I was off-line for a few days, or I would have replied earlier.
Here is the information in Donald Whyte's "A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants
to Canada Before Confederation"
SINCLAIR, Rev. Dugald, 25 May, 1777 - 18 Oct. 1870. From Lochgilphead or
Ardrishaig, Arg. brother of Donald Sinclair, qv. To Quebec, probably on the Deveron, 1831; settled Lobo Township, Middlesex Co., Ont. and was active in Kent County. Baptist preacher and leader of a group of emigrants. Married Christina Sinclair, qv. Children: Dugald, 1826-92; Maria Donalda, 1828-80; John, 1829-59; Malcolm, 1831-45; Rev. Colin b. 1834; Mary Ann, b. 1836; Rev. Archibald, b. 1838; Duncan, b. 1840.
His sons Dugald and John are also there:

I'm listing all of this information, because I know Rick Sinclair on this list
is also interested in Sinclairs in Middelsex County (especially a Richard S., and Archibald S., who was supposed to be the original settler of that area in 1826.
Perhaps Archibald was the drawing card for the next wave in 1831. A connection? Rick, are you still with us? Can you make a connection with Juli's information?
I've seen the name "Maria Donalda Sinclair" in other information I have, but it's on paper. that means A LOT of reading tonight. I'll let you know what I've
PS in your next message, you wrote 3 brothers went to Yakima .... Are these brothers of the Rev. Dugald, or his sons, or 3 entirely different brothers?
The names don't coincide.
