Looking for information on MacEacherns from Moidart. In particular Widow Jane MacEachern who arrived in Judique in 1802 with sons Hugh (b. 1785 Scotland) and Alexander (b. 1796)and possibly daughters. Jane may have been widowed en route to Canada - not sure. Do any Moidart records exist that list family members by name for late 1700's early 1800's? Are there any locations in Moidart where surname MacEachern/MacEachen was concentrated? Any help appreciated.
