MacNeils of Barra

Surnames: MacNeil

I'm looking for either ancestors of descendants of Donald "Og" MacNeil(l), who was killed in the French and Indian (aka Seven Years) War during the battle for the Plains of Abraham in Quebec in 1758. He was born on Barra, was married twice (I don't know the wives' names) and had three sons: Roderick (called "Rory") and Murdock by the first wife and Barra, (called "Ben") by the second. The sons went to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in the early 1800's, although Murdock died on the voyage. All three sons had families that settled in Cape Breton.

I'd be delighted to share what information I have or hear from anyone else looking for the MacNeils of Barra. I have a fair amount of information on the MacNeils after they arrived in Canada.

Thanks!
