Murdoch (Pioneer) Ross came to Cape Breton in 1828 with his wife Isabella MacDonald and 7 children. The 8th came the following year with Murdoch's brother Angus.
Their children: Hugh, Malcolm, Donald, Christina, Murdoch K, John, Catherine, James
They settled in Margaree. Two children emigrated to the US, the rest remained in Canada, I believe.
Murdoch was my ggggrandfather through Murdoch K. I have a great deal of info about this line, plus I know some of the descendants. If you're related, please write and let's share.
