Re: ALEXANDER McLEOD SR (1798-1885)

Hi Gary Gordon McBean, on his My Heritage website, "They came through Ontario" shows the parents of Alexander McLEOD SR (born Jan. 26, 1798) to be William McLeod (born 1778, died Oct. 5, 1866, Glasgow, Scotland) and Janet Ross, of unknown origins, according to Scotland Births and Baptisms (1564-1950...

Re: PHILIP McDONALD (1833-1914)

Hi Gary Presuming that the new info about Philip (other than the undocumented missionary background) is reasonably accurate, I updated the following entries in my Philip McDONALD file. In 1862 Philip’s sister, Catherine McDONALD married Peter TAYLOR, son of Mary INKSTER and James TAYLOR (1791-1878)....

Wayne: I'm even more confused than Gary, exept I'm reminded of the old saying..."what you thought you heard is not what I meant to say.". Should the line in your correction that reads "Jeremiah “Jerry” COOK was born around 1804 at Split Lake, son of a half breed woman named KE-CHE-COW-E-COM-E-COOT, ...

Re: ALEXANDER McLEOD Sr (b. 1798)

Hi Gary It's my composition. I was re-reading the book "The Selkirk Settlement and the Settlers" by Charles N. Bell, published about 1887 and the connections suddenly came to me. It even has a layout skech of the HBC fort partly built by Peter Fidler in 1817 and located between what became (in 1887)...

Re: ALFRED JOHN EVANS (1873-1941)

Tell me about it. The good news is the fact that they wrote every thing down. Without access to the book "Icelandic River Saga" researched and written by Nelson S.
