Our ancestors came from the Parish of Snizort on the Isle of Skye.
They lived in a division called "Peighninn Choinnich." of the township called "Talla nan Taghean"
Much thanks to Dr.James St. Clair  for his help.

On the "Net" we have met Stuart Lane of B.C. who provided info on 
an arm of the family we were not aware of. Thanks Stuart.
While going over Jonathan G. MacKinnons papers we found where he had exchanged information with Hugh MacKinnon of Kinross,PEI. in 1931/32

Preston MacDonald told us that he had a son John living at Kinross and after writing a letter to John had contact with John's daughter Sandra in Charlottetown. We will be getting together this summer and will be adding another family to the MacKinnon tree.

   This is where Lauchlan MacKinnon & Family
   came from.....
Bernisdale,Isle of Skye----see on map below
R. Catherine--Malcolm Murdoch
F. Donald-------Margaret
"Uncle" Jonathan Gillies MacKinnon had done much research on the MacKinnon Clan and went almost unnoticed until research was done among his papers.

On the weekend of March 21-23/03, Mae & I were in PEI.  We met:- John & Isabel MacKinnon-(John is a forth cousin): Sandra & Peter (Sandra is a fifth cousin) Dannie & Christine MacKinnon (Dannie is a fifth cousin). And a result of information received from them we now have about 2000 more cousins.

John lived in  "Hunglader" in the northern part of Skye.
Sandra and Peter were to Skye a few years ago and were thrilled to stand on the land that her ancestors lived on.
From research that Jonathan had done we know that Lauchlan was the "best plowman in Bernasdale". We also know that Peter lived here on the south shore of Loch Snizort. His obituary states that this is where he was born..
We discovered that  "Our MacKinnons" belonged to The Kilbride family of
MacKinnons.They were descended from Charles of Skye, second son of Lauchlan Og, 25th Chief of that Clan.
Willa Lane of BC, provided copies of pictures of Peter & Catherine.
We have record from obituary of Peter MacKinnon, that the family landed in Sydney,CB on 7 Sept. 1840--We have record of the ship NITH landing at Sydney on this date with 193 passengers for Cape Breton-- the NITH sailed for PEI the  next day with more passengers for there.

1.  Hugh MacKinnon--Church baptism records show Evan--perhaps should be Ewan--Gaelic for Hugh.
                                  Hughie stayed on the old farm after the rest of the family moved away--He was the rural mail                                              driver, by horse & buggy/sleigh for many years --I heard it said that the horse knew                                                             the route as well as Hughie and while Hughie was sorting the mail for the next                                                                    mail box the horse would walk right up to the mail box without Hughie driving                                                                    him.

                                   Hughie never married.  

                                  In the summer the family would return to visit and, no doubt, help Hughie with the                                                             "making  the hay". and other "chores"

   David Mulhern had this to tell us about Hughie

                                "My Uncle Charles (known as "Pat" despite not been named Patrick!) thinks he might   
                                  possibly recall you from those summers,probably summers in the late 40's. in his case.
                             .    They both have fond memories of going up there, working on the farm with Uncle Hughie"
                                  "Hughie's blindness, to which you refer to, did not  come on until later in life; and was a result of                                       glaucoma . His blindness did not strike him until later in his 60's or possibly even after 70"

                                  "I have, hanging in my  house a horseshoe that I picked up on the farm, which I imagine to be                                           from one of the horses he used to deliver the mail. "
2.  Flora MacKinnon---In 1953 the "Old" MacLean Church was dedecorated and former parishoneers "from away"
     Fetridge                were asked to help financially.  From the old records I found 

                                   "Donation: Mrs Florence Fetridge,Seattle,Wash, for church repairs---$ 546.44" 
                                    An unbelievable amount in those days. The donation was probably $ 500.00 and the exchange                                      made up the  difference.

                                   This, indeed, shows the devotion and respect she had for her "old" church

     David Mulhern told us this about Flora MacKinnon Fetridge

"To the extent family anecdotes are of interest, I have 3 quick family memories about Flora:"

 1-----Flora and my great grand mother regularly travelled from the west coast to Cape Breton, via New                  England. They would visit my father and mother along withmy grandfather at that time.Flora was                   somewhat quiet, but always enjoyed visiting my family and is still remembered for her lively sense of            humor."

 2.----I have all my life heard a great family story about Flora on a trolley in Boston. The Boston area is                  obviously heavily Irish. Flora was riding along quietly listening to some young women speaking Irish             Gaelic to one another. Evidently Scots Gaelic (Flora's 1 st language and native tongue) and Irish Gaelic         are quite similar, so (without their knowing it) Flora understood the Irish girls, and overheard them                 passing a rude remart about Flora's red hair! As Flora exited the trolley, Flora quietly wished the Irish            girls "Good Day"---in Gaelic! (Good for you Flora--don't take any abuse from them!)"   
3.----"My mother     visited the farm on Cape Breton in 1949 when she was engaged to my Dad. The family had             not yet met Jack's fiance, but they knew that she was a New Englander. Flora was evidently greatly                       distressed that my mother (whom Flora pictured apparently as a slightly"grand"New England lady...wheras           in truth my dear Mom is altogether down to earth and totally lacking in all pretension of any sort!!) would              have to use the latrine at the farm, since there was no indoor plumbing! Poor soul, Flora was evidently quite        a sweetheart,"

Jonathan G. stated in his notes the " Lauchlan was buried in Skye Glen Cemetery, beside his son Ewen." Probably Anne was buried there too. No markers
It was first thought that Lauchlan lived in Dunakym, but records show that it was Malcolm that bought the property in Dunakym..
Lauchlan and Anne, it seems lived in Ainslie Glen,CBI
This is the Uig Glen
