    Hello

    I am e-mailing on behalf of my Father who lived in Killin, his mother was part of the McFarlane family; Aileen, and he was interested to hear about the records.

    Would it be possible to e-mail a copy?

    I look forward to your reply

    Hi Dauvit,

    Just saw your post offerering information on family names from Killin including McDiarmid and McVurigh/McMurrich.

    My earliest known ancestors on one side are Dorothy McVurigh (b 1745?; also known as McPherson on her gravestone…) and her husband Donald McDiarmid. Their daughter Anne (1762-1849) was born in Killin; their other children are John (b 1769), Duncan (b 1769), Anne (1761-1762) and Janet (1764).

    Perhaps you have something among your records that could help me in this research?

    Best wishes,

    -Jane

    Dear Daviut
    Would like some fmore information on the Killin family names. My grandmother was a Mc Nab.I also would like to know exactly where the castle was. It was supposed to be on the Island of Eilean Raan on Loch Tay. We plan to travel to Scotland in 2007. If you could reply to me and give me some deatils it would be much appreaciated.
    This would really help me in my research as I am writing a Family History.
    Regards

    Dear Dauvit

    I should be very grateful for any information you may have about McIntyres in Killin.
    My wife’s maiden name is McIntyre. She is from Stockton-on-Tees as are many of her forbears but we know of an Archibald McIntyre who was born in Killin but married Hannah Pattison in Stockton in about 1780. He was apparently a seaman. There is no evidence that his branch of the family ever returned to Killin but it would be very interesting to learn if the McIntyres you know of were related in any way.

    Many thanks

    John

    Hi Davie,

    Thank you for your generous offer. I have early parish records on my Mclaren family from the 1830’s. My family emigrated in the 1840’s. What I would love to find out is from the world war 1 period.

    One of our relatives remained in Killin or Kenmore. He was a minister in the area. My family knew this because one of our relatives was able to visit this minister while in the UK as a member of the Canadian Army during the war. Any possibility you might see a Mclaren minister from that period listed? He would have been elderly at this time, he was the brother of my ancestor who came to Canada.

    I still have the trunk my ancestor used when she emigrated as a little girl. Could not stop looking a the Killin Web site when I found it. Too much fun! We were able to visit Killin the summer before last. We stayed in the Dahl Lodge and had a wonderful time in and around the area. Just an incredible place.

    Thanks for any help you can provide. Denise

    Hello Davie,

    I just joined the list and am happy to see such immediate gratification to my curiosity! My grandfather was John Howard MacDiarmid of Oshawa, Canada. He worked on the railroad for many years, but spent most of his married years in Oshawa.

    I think our lineage is as follows: Hugh MacDiarmid, b. 8-Sept-1840; Archibald MacDiarmid, b. 1-Nov-1800, who emigrated to Canada in 1845. Currently, there are family members in Avonmore, Ontario, where they have been farming for decades. I have met some of them, but don’t remember if any still carry the name MacDiarmid. Ring any bells?

    I’m looking forward to learning more about this branch of the family. My mother’s mother’s side is pretty well documented, but we have not been as closely in touch with her father’s side. Thanks for posting your offer of information,

    Sarah Doyle

    When are you going to scotland in 2007. The games are on Aug. 1st. My husband is working on a McNabb gathering during that week. We are from the US and a family from England with some of them in the US is also planning on coming. It would be wonderful to have someone from Australia!!! My Husband, Lanny is very interested in the McNabb history and could probably give you information. The old homeplace is still there and at the last McNabb gathering five years ago, we got to go over there and visi it. (Kinnell House) Let me know when you are going or if you want to contact my husband, his email is wlm9253@yahoo.com.

    Hello from Australia.
    Re your post Killin Family names. I am interested in the surname Mc Nab. My great ,great grandfather Duncan Mc Nab was born in the area in 1822. He emmigrated to Victoria Australia and married Margaret Mc Pherson in 1848. They had a family of 7 children. I would be interested in finding out any further deatails of his brothers and sisiters.
    Regards.

    Hello Cats,

    I’m also researching the McNab family from Killin and have your Duncan McNab in my tree. However, my ancestor is Janet McNab [b. 1817] m. Hugh Ewen Robertson also from Killin. They married here in Australia [Melbourne] after arriving on the first immigrant ship the ‘David Clark’ with all the McNab family.

    Do contact me on my personal email:
    bethstruan [at] yahoo.com.au
    Insert @ appropriately.

    Look forward to sharing some research.
    Beth
