Hi I'm currently looking for my 5th Great Grandfather. Neil Macmillan born in S. Uist in 1769. He immigrated to Nova Scotia Canada in 1799. If anyone has any information I'd be very grateful, thanks.

Hi again Norman: I did not answer your question about siblings for Catherine. All that plus more detail should be in a croft history of Uachdar that the Benbecula History Society should publish one of these days. Catherine's father was married at least three times, twice to MacPhersons from 14 Torlum and once to a MacAulay from Balivanich. I know of four siblings but there may have been more who left before the records pick up. Her full siblings were John, who was married and left for Cape Breton in 1846 and another Catherine who was married and left for PEI on the Lulan in 1848. Donald a tailor who took over 7 Uachdar was a son of the next marriage and Roderick was a son of the MacAulay marriage and had a croft at 16 Uachdar. Angus

I have six children for the first marriage: John, Angus, Peter/Patrick. Ranald, Alexr and Malcom. Were you double counting Peter/Patrick who, I imagine was one person? I suspect the marriage will have been a year or two earlier than A-M's latest suggestion of 1826. The two who had families recorded are Angus, who settled as a ploughman at Nunton and died in 1901; and Ranald who married twice, left Gramsdale for Saskatchewan in 1883/4 and died in 1929.

Hi Norman,

Struggling to find much as it's harder to determine the denominations of the North end but here's a bit more.

John MacCormick (Uachdar) married Catherine MacMillan (no given locality) – Uachdar, Benbecula 1826

Malcolm MacCormick 24 Aug 1855 to John & Catherine MacDonald

Hello Norry: Catherine MacMillan was a daughter of Aonghas mac Chaluim and his first (?) wife who was a MacPherson from 14 Torlum. John was son of Angus MacCormick and Marion MacCuish and Angus was son of Calum \'Saggart\' born about 1755 not to be confused with his grandson, another Calum Saggart, who emigrated to Leitches Creek, Cape Breton from Uachdar in the 1840s. John, who married again in 1848 to a Catriona MacDonald from Bualacrach in 1848, moved as a farmer to 11a Torlum at that time but lost the lands and, after a time in Scaraleod, returned to Torlm as a cottar where he died in 1879. All but one of the MacCormick families from Uachdar derive from the first Calum Saggart.

Hi Anne Marie

Thank you for replying

I have Alexander birth and I also have a Patric 1829 and Malcolm 1842

I don`t have Catherine`s marriage to John MacCormick But I do have a marriage of John MacCormick to Catherine MacDonald 1848 with at least 2 children Catherine 1850 and Alexander 1852.

John died 1879 and both Catherine`s are named as wives so.

When John`s son my gg Grandfather got married 1857 it appeares that Catherine MacMillan was still alive according to the marriage extract. So i am looking for anything for Catherine MacMillan , a Marriage,Death,Birth, Parents,GrandParents.

Regards

Norry
