A WORTHY FAMILY HISTORIC ACCOUNT OF THE CLAN CHATTEN McINTOSHS

John McIntosh, the, son of one of the Chiefs of the Clan
McIntosh of Inverness, Scotland, had six brothers killed at the
Battle of Culloden. The Chief himself was not at the battle of
Culloden, but his followers were there. ,(See History of Battle).,
In the year 1745, under Prince Charlie, the headquarters of the
Chiefs of the Clan McIntosh was the Castle Moy Hall. The estate
is still occupied by McIntosh of McIntosh, the present Chief, at
Inverness, Scotland, and has been occupied by each successive Chief
for the past 800 years. The Castle Moy Hall has only been rebuilt
once. Prince Charles slept at Moy Hall the night before the battle
of Cohoden. It is said that Lady McIntosh commanded the clans at the
battle, but that report is not true. Her maiden name was Ann
Farquharson.
She took a very active part in collecting the clans to carry the
standard of Prince Charlie. John McIntosh, alone left Inverness
Scotland after the troubles of 1745, and came to the United States,
and settled near Albany in the State of New York, until the
American Revolution. When the war of Independence broke out in
1773 he joined the U.E. LOYALISTS, 1eft the United States, came to
Canada, and settled on a farm near St. Andrews in the Township of
Cornwall, in the County of Stormont. The home he built notwithstanding
that
it has sheltered six generations, and is still firmly in the
the McIntosh family.

John McIntosh's fami1y consisted, of two boys and seven girls. Major
Big John McIntosh and Donald McIntosh, who Went to the Northwest and
joined the Hudson Bay Co., were stationed at Winnipeg at the
Kaministique River, Port Arthur. The sisters were Mrs. Col. John
Cameron, Mrs. R. Wood,
Mrs. Stephen Wood, Mrs. Duncan McLellan, Mrs. J. Snyder, Mrs. Donaldson
and Miss Christie McIntosh. This latter never married and remained on
the homestead where she died. The six generations who have been
sheltered in this good old home are as follows: John McIntosh, who
left Inverness, first his son, Major John McIntosh, who lived the
fifth concession Cornwall, second: Donald McIntosh, John's son, who
died on the homestead and left it to his son Donald, third, Donald,
now occupying and owning the homestead, and his nephew, John McIntosh
is the fourth generation; the nephew, John McIntosh, the fifth
generation; the sixth generation was a girl, who was there a short
time last summer. She is now in British Columbia. Her grandmother
was Anne McIntosh, sister to Donald McIntosh, who married James Fraser.
Her daughter married Grant, which makes young Miss Grant the sixth
generation. Donald McIntosh,well known as Big Dan McIntosh
was a genuine, sterling,Scotch Highlander, true to his country, and a
worthy representative of his clan.
Donald McIntosh left a family of four boys and two girls,
that are second to no people in any country. They are kind, generous
and give a cheerful Highland Scotch welcome to any who may call to see
them. The daughter of John McIntosh and grand daughter of Donald
McIntosh, the great grand daughter of Major John McIntosh and great
grand
daughter of John McIntosh, the Chiefs son, was married a few days ago to
John James McDonald's son. There were 300 guests at the wedding
and sufficient left of the supplies for the inner man to satisfy
300 more. Can any of the many families now in the country equal the
foregoing family illustration.
