My family tree is clustered with families who are listed as Baptists in the 1851 census. I think many of them are from Breadalbane, Perthshire, Scotland, but instead of settling in Lochiel Township they settled in Kenyon or the Indian Concession instead. I think they may have helped to constitute the congregation of "The Old Beech Church" and then the Baptist church at Notfield. Does anyone have any information about this church and its members?
Among the families listed as Baptist living in Kenyon in 1851 are: McIntyre,James ("my" McIntyres!), Kennedy, William; Kippen, Duncan; Kippen, James; McDermid; McFayden; McIntyre, Archibald.
I would love to hear from any of the descendants. I think they all moved from Breadalbane and would like any clues others might give me about exact origin.
