    I stumbled across this today, and it brought back many memories. I am a McGill from Nuttby by birth, my mother was a Fowler from West Branch. Many a summer Saturday in August spent at the Piper’s Picnic started by my uncle Alex W. Sutherland. Ah the memories! No matter how far away I am Nova Scotia is still ‘home’.

    I am researching Hugh Macdonald born 1838, I believe in Earl town, he married Marion Mackenzie born 1832 and they lived in the River John, Dalhousie and Loganville area. If any one has any info on who his parents were it would be much appreciated.

  3. Thank you for this blog. MacKay, Kisselpaugh and Porter are my ancestors. Catherine MacKay and Jacob Kisselpaugh are 3rd great grandparents. Their daughter, Jane and George Carter are my 2nd ggps. Henry Porter married Charlotte Cock and they are my 2nd ggps. Their daughter, Letitia Anne Porter married James Carter, George and Jane’s son. You probably know that the several of this extended family wound up emigrating to the United States, to Wolf Creek, Montana. Floyd Carter, James and Letitia’s son, is my grandfather. Floyd married Viva Widner and had a son, Leslie, settling in Plains, Mt. for a while, before removing to Spokane, Washington, where Leslie married Ruth Ann Smith and I was born. I have settled in N. California, and have a daughter and grandson who live here. I’m looking hard to find George Carter’s origin. He came from England in around 1840, but I’ve yet to find much more that I can verify.

    Peter and Eliza Murray are my 5th great grandparents. I would be interested in knowing more about their life in Nova Scotia and their origins in Scotland.

    Thank you for your prompt reply. Yes, I would certainly be very interested in any information you could provide about Peter and Eliza. Their son Donald was my 4th great grandfather.
    Also, my late mother visited her “cousin” Dr. William MacKay “Billy” NICHOLSON of Reserve Mines. He took over his grandfather’s (William MacKay) medical practice in 1945. I believe he died in 2000. If you know anything about my family’s connection to him, I would appreciate learning about him.

      Tom,
      Eliza’s sister Jane, was my 3rd great grandmother. I believe Eliza and Jane’s parents were Alex Murray and Christy Sutherland. That is as far back as I go on that side.
