Surnames: McIntosh
Looking for information on my G.Grandfather Hugh McIntosh (1833) who was married to Christie McIntosh (1843). They had 5 children, John, James, Archie, Alexander (my grandfather) and Mary (a Catholic Nun). I believe that Samuel and William McIntosh were his brothers and his father was John McIntosh who was granted lot 18 or 19 in 1803.

Thank you so much satch42179! Just yesterday I did confirm while at the local LDS library that Donald and Mary were indeed Hugh's parents but you gave me so much more information. I will look at the site's that you pointed me to especially the automatedgenealogy since the LDS library also recommended that site. My next adventure is to connect Donald, Hugh's father to John P McIntosh who recieved the orginal grant of land in Concession 5. I have the records of the grant but I just want to make sure that John was actually Donald's father. Thanks again for all the information...

Hugh's ancestry is probably as follows
Hugh
Donald McIntosh & Mary Stuart
Maj. or Capt. John McIntosh & Mary McDonald
John McIntosh (V,14 Cornwall) & Catherine McPhail

Christina McIntosh was dau. of John & Catherine

My interest: my ancestor was Donald Fraser of V, 15 Cornwall and I am trying to connect Peter McIntosh (my 3xgreat-grandfather)who married Jane Fraser (Donald's dau.) to John & Catherine if possible.

Your interest: I found this online about 4 years ago and it gave me tons of information about the area and my family. I think it starts about page 77 but the whole thing is interesting. The page I linked you to talks about the name McPhail. http://www.ourroots.ca/e/page.aspx?id=1026737


So you feel Capt John McIntosh and Mary McDonald were Donald's parents?

Hi Again,
Well finally today I recieved confirmation that Maj. John McIntosh is my 3x Grandfather. I visited Canada in April and was able to get all the petition information so I could order them. I have all my ancesters land petitions with information on Maj. John McIntosh. He joined the 84th Regiment in 1775 and served until June '84. It appears a number of his military buddies all ended up in the 5th concession including Donald Fraser on the Lot 15. I actually have a petition John and Donald signed as well as 7 others requesting their property lines be extended. I wanted to clarify the note you wrote to me in January. Where suggesting that Maj John was married twice, first wife
Mary, second Catherine?
Thank you,
Janis

no, Maj./Capt. John McIntosh's father was also named John, so the Maj./Capt. parents were John McIntosh & Catherine McPhail.

another thing - Maj. John was b. 1776 or so, so it was his father (John) who was in the 84th, etc. and got the land.

I have Maj John McIntosh (it stated he was a Major)discharge papers from the regiment in 1785 and it states that he came from Scotland by way of the Providence of York in 1773. He served for 9 years. I have his request in Aug 1808 to be listed on the EU Loyalist list and on that same day his children, Peggy, Mary and Anne requested their land grants in his name. I have the paper that shows he was added to the list one month later in September 1808. The only Petition that lists an age is Peggy, she was 21 at the time making her born around 1777. So Capt. John would be her older brother. Last night I did find the death notice of Mary McDonald and it did say she was married to Captain John McIntosh and Samuel and Duncan McIntosh were present at the enternment so most likely her grandchildren. WOW! I have been trying to somehow tie Samuel to our family and now I think I have it. Thank you!
