Dunkeld 1791
Fri Oct 28, 2011 12:45

Hi Norman
I am not a relative, but my ancestor also came from Moidart in 1791. His name was Roderick (Rory ) Mac Dougall and with him were his wife and three children, from whom we are all descended. Rory settled in Antigonish County, Nova Scotia. I have a copy of his oldest daughters' obituary and she states that she came over with her father in 1791. I haven't been able to find a passenger list for the "Dunkeld" and I wondered if you had access to other papers with passenger names and if you would share information.
