Re: Patrick Sinclair of Fort Michillimackinac
Do you know any more about the people you mentioned. I think William may
have had a brother John. On William's death certificate it says that JAmes
would have been a farmer. William was either born in 1822 or 1823 in Wick.
William married in wick, in 1850 to Barbara Lyall - that is a sept of
Sinclair is it not?
Her parents were Henry Lyall and Janet Sinclair.
