Neil Livingston &Janet McNair of Middlesex County Ontario

Postby Canadian Livingstone » Tue Feb 12, 2019 3:52 am

Neil Livingston and Janet McNair. Neil Livingston said to be the son of Dun. (Duncan) Livingston of Craignish Parish, Argyll. According to a record from that Parish, Neil Livingston son of Duncan Livingston was born at Kilmory Scarba in Craignish Parish and baptized on May 9, 1784. The old parish church was known as Kilmory church after the old name for the Parish. Neil Livingston and his wife Janet McNair (Dec. 7, 1794-July 1,1854) were married in Glassary Parish, Argyll on Dec. 23, 1813. Their marriage record confirms that Neil Livingston is the son of the late Dun. or Duncan Livingston who had apparently lived on Scarba Island in Craignish Pairsh, Argyll. In 1820 they Neil Livingston came to Canada with his wife Janet McNair and their eldest children and settled in Aldorough, Elgin County, Upper Canada (Ontario,Canada). Later in 1829 Neil, Janet and their children resettled in Mosa Township, Middlesex County, Upper Canada locating at Concession 9 north half of Lot 5. Neil Livingston is said to have mysteriously disappeared in 1830's and died and the children were raised by their mother. Neil's wife Janet McNair died on July 1, 1854 is buried at Kilmartin Cemetery in Kilmartin Township, Middlesex County, Ontario, Canada.

I am not certain some of the birthdates of the sons were entirely accurate looking at their ages given in the Middlesex County census records so it is still a bit of a work in progress.
