    It is a while since I last visited but I didn’t realize it was as long ago as 31 December 2008 since I posted on the Family History board. I am still looking for my family FRASER of Monemore, Killin, but from reading the posts no one seems to be researching Frasers! If by some good luck someone is, see my post dated as above on page 2.

    Since writing then I have discovered that two of DUNCAN FRASER’S sons emigrated to Canada in the 1830’s. JOHN FRASER (1808-….) who, like his father Duncan, was a blacksmith emigrated to St Andrews East, Quebec, Canada where he married ANNE FRASER known as Nancy. She was, of course, another family of FRASER’S who had emigrated from Inverness-shire. Their children were Catherine born 1833, John, born 1835, Duncan born 1837, Elizabeth born 1839. No knowledge of John’s death other than that he was alive in 1839 but in the Canadian 1851 census his wife was a widow.

    Catherine Fraser married PETER DOUGALL in 1852, died 1914, age 80, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They lived most of their life in Renfrew, Ontario and had nine children.

    The other son of DUNCAN FRASER who emigrated to Canada in 1834 was WILLIAM FRASER, born Killin 1810, died 1974 in Toronto, Canada. William had studied medicine in Glasgow, continued his studies in Toronto and became a well respected doctor closely associated with the McColl Hospital and university.

    I still know nothing of the son ROBERT FRASER except he was a 29 year old blacksmith in 1841. Nothing at all about the youngest son DUNCAN FRASER born in 1817. Nor anything about ELIZABETH FRASER born 1821.

    Other names I am interested in are ROBERTSON, BUCHANAN, McMILLAN/MacMILLAN, McFARLANE.

    I won’t write more here as I have written quite a lot in my post of 31 December 2008.

    Good luck with your family research.
