I am trying to confirm whether Angus MacGillis m. to Catherine Maclellan is the Angus labelled 4. above. His daughter Mary MacGillis married Allan Sandfield Macdonald and lived in Glengarry.
I have the circumstantial evidence that Mary died at the home of John son of Angus 4. Also, the will of Allan Macdonell makes Ranald McGillis of Cornwall an executor. Could this be the son of John son of Angus. Johm also married a Maclellan.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Regars,

Evelyn

I can't answer your question but I am very curious about your Hugh Ewen and Ewen McGillis. Ewen is supposed to be my great great great grandfather but I can find nothing more than a birth record. His wife according to family was Annie. Please email me direct at mary@herrbach.org

Evelyn, I likely can't help you with the main quest in your posting, but Donald McGillis (generation 6) married my 2nd great-grandaunt Nancy McGillis and your relationships comment appears to be from Father John MacDonald's Diary of Deaths who was a 1st cousin 4 times removed. You can contact me directly at pete@pmcd.com
