Looking for ancestors/siblings/family of Donald Fisher (apparently from Killin)- brother John married Mary Campbell - sister Margaret married Duncan McNaughton. Birth dates ca 1730's They all emigrated to USA around 1750's give or take some years. Donald married Elizabeth Munro (daughter of Rev. Harry Munro) in Albany, New York. John & Mary had 4 children (Alexander & Finley (twins), Anne & Margaret). Margaret was widowed when she came to America with her children. In Elizabeth Munro's memoirs she mentions Donald's father and step brother but doesn't name them. Please if someone could help or put me in the right direction. Thanks
red mail McIntyre
I am trying to trace my paternal grandfathers family and have a record for my great grandfather who was born in Killin Perthshire. It appears his name was Alexander John McIntyre. His parents were John McIntyre and Catherine McIntyre (nee Clark). It appears they all emigrated to Victoria Australia and were miners there, I think in the goldfields. If anyone has any information about this branch of my family I would be very grateful.
