Hello John,
Saw your postings on families McCASKILLS, MCRAE and MCDONALD
I have 2gg parents Angus MCDONALD born Glenelg, Invernessshire abt. 1801 and Catherine MCRAE born Kintail, Ross and Comarty Scotland in abt. 1807.

One of their children, I think Margaret born Knoydart 1829 married a John McCASKILL and I think?? they may have emigrated to Glengarry, Canada.
I found my 22grandmother Catherine MCDONALD (ms MCRAE) as a widow in 1861 in Knoydart and also in the family was a grandchild Malcolm MCCAKSILL aged 7.
I have checked the 1881 census of Glengarry Canada, and found a Margaret and husband John McCASKILL with children. Have you done any research on the MCCASKILL family who now live in Canada, and who emigrated from Scotland.???I would like to hear further from you
Janet )(ms Macdonald) living in CHCH NZ
