On another branch, I've got a Hugh McKinnon born 12 Aug 1823, Tyree, Argyll, Scotland. With a brother named Neil. Not sure when Neil was born.
Hugh & Neil McKinnon both ended up in Shoal Lake, Manitoba after first arriving in Ontario.
Hugh married Ann R Rose born 15 Apr 1830, Scotland, but I don't know where or when they were married. They were living in Ontario in the 1871 Census and they were in Marquette / Shoal Lake, Manitoba in the 1881 Census. All of their children were born in Ontario. We are related to their daughter Barbara, born 20 Jul 1864. Barbara married Robert John Johnson on 2 Mar 1885 in Manitoba. Robert was born in Ontario 23 Feb 1858. Robert & Barbara Johnson's daughter Florence Victoria Barbara Johnson is my husband's Grandmother.
I feel there's probably a connection between these two McKinnon families, but I can't figure out where they connect.
If we find a connection, then it will connect my husband's family with our daughter-in-laws family. Which would make for an interesting family story!
