Right, I've joined the Facebook group and will see when they schedule everything. I'm running a meeting for my Genealogy Society in the afternoon, so... we'll see how it all pans out. 

Thanks for the suggestion! I hope that the sessions will be available for watching later, too. -v

Diane, 

To make groups like this work for you, post what you know, what resources you have consulted, and what you want to know. 

Even if you own lines have not yet been posted, you can often learn much about the history and movements of the clan members by scanning all the posts. 

One of the strengths of the Groups.io system is that you control what you want in your inbox. Login to https://scottish-clan-genealogy.groups.io and choose how you want to get email: https://groups.io/static/help#subscription-options

Re: Clan Cameron

 

Margaret and Heather, 

Sorry for sitting on this. https://scottish-clan-genealogy.groups.io/g/Clan-Cameron is live, although waiting for approval before invitations can be sent. One of you might write to Anne at Rootsweb for the list of subscriber emails to the Cameron surname list and Clan-Cameron list. 

I did basic settings and links, but will leave it to you both to make that homepage pretty, announce the group on https://groups.io/g/RootsWeb-Announce and etc. Joining https://groups.io/g/Gen-listowners might be useful. 

As soon as you two have subscribed I can make you owners, and bow out - until I find Camerons! Then I'll be sure to post.

For starters here is the US arm of my family.

There are Mackies in the family.

Apparently there were two Camerons/McPhails living around Inveravon on either side of the Spey River,
It seems they may have been connected and from the one famiy in the 1600s. Everything looks to be traced back
to the Spey River near the whisky distillery now there today. There is talk of illegal whisky making too.

Margaret was born c1811 Alvie. Inverness-shire( I cannot find an entry in Scotland People for her birth). Her parents, according to the immigration records when she and her husband and family entered Australia in 1838 are Duncan MacBean and Bell MacPherson.

Margaret married Alexander Fraser in 1831 at Noid a parish of Kingussie. She is recorded as coming from Dunachton.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

Walter and Samuel Macqueen.

Jane Macgillivray
 

Re Macqueens below

 

Thank you for the link re Samuel and Walter Macqueen.

 

I am somewhat familiar with Macqueens in Petty in 18th century, but I have never seen the name Samuel in any documents or parish records in the north of Scotland. (The name is quite unusual with any surname).

 

The name Samuel Macqueen though is found in Port of Menteith – Stirlingshire or  Perthshire…

One particular Walter Macqueen (I have born 1719 Port of Menteith) married Marion Junkine (Jenkins) with children Elizabeth, Mary, Christian, Helen and Samuel born 1763 and Walter born 1766.

This Samuel married Margaret McAdam and had children at Thornhill, Walter, Peter, Ann George, John, Margaret, William, Janet and David.

 

Walter was a name used also by Buchanans and Stewarts in this area,

 

I therefore posit that Samuel Macqueen in America was probably born in Perthshire. My mother was a Macqueen from this area, and family legend has it that these Macqueens came originally from Isle of Skye, although this must have been in 17th century or earlier as found after this in quite large numbers around Port of Menteith.

 

The Corribrough Macqueens probably came from Isle of Skye as well… There seem to be very few of them, it was not a large family.  I believe they left the Inverness/Nairn area in early 19th century (in fact in one letter (Catherine Mackintosh of Farr) it was stated to go to Perthshire for the education of the children).

Hi Valorie,

I see how the RootsWeb Clan Cameron has been closed down for a long while now. How do you go collect all the information and transfer it over to IO?

Jeanette Brentnall emailed me off list about this so she may be trying to do this. Hate to see all the records get lost.

Heather

 

I have asked for a few lists to be reopened so that I could get the old list of emails and invite them to the old list. However, the Clan lists have, in general, been very quiet, and not really worth the effort. If someone wants to do this work, Anne is willing to work with them, but she does not want to do very many of them.

 

Don't worry about the records -- the archives will remain right where they are now. 

 

As I've offered repeatedly, if someone wants to start up Clan-Cameron-Genealogy as a subgroup here, I will work with you to make that happen. I can't be the owner of it long-term because I don't have Camerons.

Re: Clan Cameron

MARGARET KIPP
 

Hi Heather:  
Thank you for your response. I am new to doing this type of list.  My main experience was running a Facebook groups for my public school, animed at Alumni. Any advice, suggestions more than welcome.  I am "replying to group" as I think that allows everyone to see the response. Let me know if I should be choosing another option.

Although I have only had suggestions that I might have Camerons in my ancestry, in the last two months I have done research using Ancestry that makes it appear I am descended from the Cameron of Locheil who was so active with the Jacobites in 1745.  This came as a total surprise as I was trying to determine whether Ewen McPhee the Outlaw from Loch Quoich was an ancestor or perhaps part of another related line.  Ewen lived on Locheil lands around 1800 - 1850 and stole sheep from a fellow named Cameron of Corriechoillie.  
My connection to the Locheil Camerons appears to be through the McMaster family who lived in and around Kilmonivaig and Kilmallie.  My great great grandmother Kirsty McMaster married Alexander McPhee in 1857, their oldest daughter Helen married John McPhail about 1878, Helen and John's second daughter married Margaret married Donald Stewart about 1904, they had my mother Helen Stewart, who then married a Canadian soldier in 1946 so here I am.    Using dna I have uncovered some strong links to other descendents of the Locheil Cameron, and it does appear that a Cameron daughter married a McMaster man who seems to be my ancestor.  Lots of "weasel words" until I can verify all this.

I do think that the Ewen McPhee I descend from may not be the outlaw, but a comtemporary (cousin) of his.  My mother who was born in 1911 felt confident her granny's grandfather was the outlaw, based on family stories.  

I am also learning (quickly) abou all the emigration of Scots from Invernesshire to Eastern Canada and Eastern Ontario.  Many seem to have had links to Culloden.  Lots to keep me busy.

Cheers, Margaret

Re: Clan Cameron

Heather Cameron
 

Margaret, I am open to you doing the Clan Cameron one.

My Camerons hail from Inveravon, Banff, early 1700s. This is certainly a Clan Chattan area. They were also closely connected to Clan Grant.
Early 1700 they are on records as being McPhailes. The name got changed by William to Cameron alias McPhaile who married a very young 18 year old
Grant woman when he was in his mid 40s. This William McPhaile could have been over fur trading with the Grants in Canada for years. Hard to work out
whether they were originally Camerons or the marriage took place as long as he converted. Clan McPhail were apparently in disrepute at the time. ie. it is said that the wives were playing up and the men needed fast horses. So one doesn't know whether the name change was due to social pressure or what.

The only John McPhaile I have been able to trace in the records for late 1600s was a guy who was in the army and with Campbell when the platoon went into Glencoe and did that dastardly killing of the McDonalds. William, the son, named his first born son, James, and this got repeated down the generations. Should rightly have been John, going by the paternal grandfather's name. Perhaps John McPhail was actually in hiding. An ancestor William Cameron became a very successful business man in Chicago USA with his Cameron Canning Co..

Does anyone know more about this?

Unless you subscribed to some or all of the other subgroups, you are not getting their messages. You are, however, getting all of the main group's messages.

When you login, you have a lot of control over what you get from each Groups.io group you have joined. I just addressed this in a special notice to the main group.

How to control your messages

 

Hi folks, the topic keeps coming up from subgroup members (Buchanan, Chattan, Colquhoun, Devine, MacBean, MacLean, MacPherson, MacQueen, Maxwell so far) about why they are seeing all these posts they aren't interested in. 

Login to https://scottish-clan-genealogy.groups.io to set up your mail preferences or to mute topics and the same with your clan group. If you subscribed by mail or by responding to an emailed invitation, you don't have a login unless you created one previously. Here is the Help doc about that:

https://groups.io/static/help#suboptions

You can change from getting every message to getting a digest, and/or "mute" or follow topics. Groups.io gives us each quite a bit of power over what we want to see. 

We owners and moderators have more power to do things like create and maintain a calendar, files, and other cool features, but it gives us much *less* power over each individual's subscription. We cannot change you from individual messages to Digest, for instance. Nor can we change your email, etc. This is all within your power.

All the best,

Valorie, for the owners and moderators
