Re: Happy New Year
Hello Toni and Neil,
Thanks for the response. Yes, I have corresponded to you last fall and we
have talked for a little bit. I have corresponded with Jennifer Marshall
and Juli last fall also and they are both from somewhere in my lines. The
Sinclairs and McVicar. They both are a big help to me. Jennifer have
provided me a map of where Corribuie used to be and pointed an arrow there.
There is a website where I can give you so you can see where Corriebuie is.
Streetmap.co.uk- grid location</A>
Juli has provided me information that I have so far which she quoted:
I just checked the K&D OPR entries that I do have and the birth of John
Sinclair to Lachlan Sinclair and Marion MacIntyre is on the same page as one
of the entries for my own John Sinclair and Flory Campbell. The entry reads
"3 Sept. 1789 Lachlan Sinclair and Marion McIntyre in the parish of Dalavich
had a son baptized named John."
There are some entries that mention Corriebuie - for example-
"11 Nov. 1786 Colin Campbell and Janet McNicol in Corriebuie had a daughter
baptized named Anne." so maybe the entry for the first Ann (b. 1788) will
mention Corriebuie or even the marriage.
She also mentions on the other email:
(Source: FamilySearch site)
First - Sarah is actually a Morag in Gaelic which you will find written in
the OPRS as Sarah, Mary, Marion and even May -
Lachlan Sinclair married Marrion 17 July 1787 Kilchrenan & Dalavich -
Children that I found
Ann - C. 22 Aug. 1788 K&D (mother Marion)
John C. 3 Sep. 1789 K& D (Mother Marion)
Mary C. 26 May 1792 Glassary (mother Sarah)
Archibald G. 5 June 1794 Glassary (mother Sarah)
Anne b. 10 Jun. 1796 Glassary (mother Sarah)
Marrion c. 27 Feb 1803) Craignish (mother Marion)
There also is an entry for the birth of a Lachlan Sinclair to john Sinclair
b. 15 May 1761 Glenorchy & Inishail that would be interesting to look at. I
also have OPRs for G&I.
I would have never known about those Morag names if it hadn't been for those
ladies I have corresponded with. The list of siblings I have on me that is
closely with these children are the same so far:
I have no Sinclairs thru South Carolina. I have about 4 families that came
from Argylleshire before they all came to London, Ontario, Canada. The
Sinclairs, Johnson, McIntyre all came in 1820 to Canada. The McVicars came
to Canada from Argyll as well in 1830.
Hmmm.... maybe we all can work together and find our family missing puzzle
and straightened them out. If you have come across these names.... please
let me know. Thanks.
