perhaps we have a connection. my MACSWANS as far back as i have gotten were on Skye, Uig, parish of Duirunish in a village called Husabost around 1780 until at least the 1881 census. Angus MacSwan (crofter) my g-g-g grandfather
Malcolm " (crofter/fisherman) g-g "
John " (merchant seaman) g-"
William John "
Malcolm Macswan m. Marion MacDermid b. around 1807 (daughter of Angus MacDermid and Christina Martin)
Malcolm & Marion's children were: Angus(1832)
perhaps due to death of
of the first mary.
of these children:
John m. Marion MacDonald 9 dec 1870
glasgow. child William John b. 14feb 1872
Margaret m. Laughlin MacLean
child Marion MacLean b. 25 aug 1866
if you think we have a connection, i'd love to hear from you. also now, i understand there are at least 4 families of MacSwans still on Skye. Good Hunting, Patricia J. Dick
