Re: Buchanans of Lewis/Cape Breton

I am a descendant of Angus B. Buchanan and Mary Buchanan who lived in Uig Parish (near Carnish) on the Isle of Lewis. The Angus B. family immigrated to Cape Breton Island about 1827 or 1828 (at about the same time that the William “Red” family immigrated there).

There appears to be connections between the William "Red" and the Angus B. families.

Apparently, two sons of Angus B. Buchanan and Mary Buchanan, Angus B. “Squire” and Murdoch, married two daughters of William “Red” Buchanan and Christena Campbell, Mary “Maggie” and Christie. Both couples had sons named William and Angus.

In addition, one researcher has indicated that Angus B “Squire”, son of Angus B. Buchanan and Mary Buchanan, may have married his first cousin Mary “Maggie” Buchanan, daughter of William “Red” Buchanan and Christena Campbell in Cape Breton Island. This implies that either Angus B. or Mary may be a sibling of William “Red”. Of these two possibilities, I believe that it is more likely that Mary and William are siblings.

Does anyone have information about these possible relationships? Does anyone know the names of William "Red" Buchanan siblings (specifically did he have a sister named Mary)?

Thanks
