From working on the census we know that errors occur and names misspelled. This has happened here as the names should all be MacKeigan. Dates may also be incorrect and will be corrected above, where possible.

Murdock MacKeigan-----------------Flora MacKinnon
b.         1857                                                 b.   2 Dec. 1865
d.         1903                                                 d.  22 June 1955 
While we work on the MacKeigan surname, we will give the connection to the MacKinnon's here.
Flora was a daughter of Murdoch MacKinnon who lived in Ainslie Glen,Inv.Co.CBI. He, in turn was a son of  Ewen MacKinnon who emigrated from the Isle of Skye to Cape Breton in 1832. Ewen's father, Lauchlan, and
the rest of the family emigrated in 1840. They came in Sept 1840 and spent the winter with Ewen and family.In the spring Malcolm,another son of Lauchlan, and the rest of the family moved to Dunakym,Inv.Co.CBI.



It seems that Lauchlan and  his wife, Anne (MacDonald) spent the rest of their days with Ewen and family.


It was reported that "Lauchlan was buried in Skye Glen Cemetery beside his son Ewen"
