Duncan Kennedy & Jane McDonald/Janet McDonnell

Duncan Kennedy & Jane McDonald/Janet McDonnell

Classification: Query
Surnames: Kennedy, McDonald, McDonnell
Can anyone tell me who Duncan Kennedy's parents were?
Also, the parents of Jane McDonald (sometimes listed as Janet McDonnell)?

Duncan Kennedy had Lot 31, Concession 8, Lochiel.

(Duncan's daughter Mary Kennedy - b. 1845 - married Angus Malcolm McDonald in 1871.)

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Donna

I believe Duncan's father to be Alexander Ban Kennedy and mother to be Mary Sarah M(a)cMillan. See http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&d...

Thank you for getting back to me, James.

Alexander Ban Kennedy looks like a good possibility. I note there are two Duncans in the list of his chidren. I'll need to check further, but I could imagine that the one born in 1807 might have died, and the later son (b. 1810) was given the same name. Mary Kennedy was born in 1845, which would make Duncan ca. 35. That would fit.

Interesting to have the name of Alexander Ban's wife as well, along with the (possible) names of his parents.

Thank you for helping me to find another piece of the puzzle. I have something concrete now to work with.
