James Robertson, son of John the "Pioneer" Robertson of Farlie Scotland marr. Ellen (Helen) MacDonald, in 1787. Both of the East River. http://www.rootsweb.com/~nspictou/elect_text/Pictonians_ch_1...
(also in the book “Rawdon & Douglas” on page 343
Ellen McDonald was married to James Robertson. The well-known Deacon Robertson, Churchville, was their son.
I am interested in confirming the birth date of James' wife, Ellen (Helen) MacDonald.
I tentatively have it listed as 1 Jul 1772 in Drumnadrochit, Inverness-shire.
Perhaps Ellen's year of birth is listed on the gravestone for James Robertson?
This family settled in Churchville, Pictou County, Nova Scotia.
Ellen (Helen) was a daughter of John MacDonald who settled at Bridgeville in 1784
I was sent a Robertson family genealogy chart by the Pictou County Roots Society but it contained no dates for Ellen. They had 11 children
I thought the following could have been James Robertson’s gravestone?, However, the Robertson chart I was sent for James showed his year of birth as 1761 and his year of death as 1835. There were no dates listed for his wife Ellenhttp://www.rootsweb.com/~nspictou/cemeteries/cem_churchville...
