Archibald MacDonell/ Ann McGillis & Ranald MacDonell/Ann Wier - Lochiel

Surnames: MacDonell
Archibald MacDonell m. Ann McGillis - birth/death/marriage dates/places unknown - child Ranald b.1799 Ontario, m. Ann Weir 1844.

Hello, Archibald is my 3rd great grandfather. I believe that he (or possibly his father) settled in Glengarry as a result of the Highland Clearances. I have not been able to locate any information on Archibald or his family in Glengarry other than a reference to him being deceased at the time of his son Ranalds marriage.

I would like to learn more on these families and to connect Archibald MacDonell or the McGillis or Weir's back to their clans in Scotland.

Does anyone know this family and/or if I were to visit Lochiel or that general vicinity, where would be the best place to locate records on Archibald? Is there a local history center on this settlement?

Thank you in advance!
