In Edwin Levingston's book on the family, he cites records of Daniel being a soldier in Fraser's Highlanders, of having lived on a farm near Salem, N.Y. and of having moved to Ontario about 1790 where he was granted land as a veteran of United Empire Loyalists. In Dec. 1995, some data given to Ed by a descentant in NY indicated that Daniel was married in Schnectady, NY. although no name was given for his wife. The records at Schnectady were checked and no marriage in 1750-1756 for any Livingston.
When the revolution began he joined General Burgoyne and was present at the defeat of his army. With the end of the wara he came to Augusta and petitioned for land as a settler. Also coming to Canada were his nine sons.
One of those sons was Duncan, who had been born Jan. 14, 1773 in New York State; along with his brothers. Duncan petitioned for land as a Loyalist, stating the he was the son of Daniel Livingston who adhered to the British Standard in the year 77. Duncan appears to have many problems with his land grants but he settled in Kitley, west of what is now Toledo, building mills along the creek which runs across the township linking Irish Lake and Bellamys Lake which was formed when a dam was built on the creek farther west. He also cleared some land which he farmed.

I will list the sons in the next reply

HI Roberta,

AH yes old Daniel Livingston. He was one of the first highland Livingstons to settle in Upper Canada what is now Ontario as was I understand a loyalist who had served before the revolution in Frasers Highlanders at Quebec in 1759. Indeed from what I seen of the British military records highland Livingstons served in the British military in great numbers during the Napoleonic War period as well. I really enjoyed reading the info. I had not seen the family tree of Daniel's family from the States which I found very interesting. I looked at the petitions of his sons to Government of Upper Canada for land last year I think it was.

regards,

Donald

Malcolm Livingston born Jan 1 1729 Kildalton
Died Mar 18 1821 West Kilpatrick
married Katharine McArthure born Aug 23 1738 Kildalton married 1758 Lismore
son Duncan born 1759 Lismore

Does this connection make sense? This is the only record during the time frame that comes up on the opr


I know that Duncan's parents are Malcolm Livingston & Kate McArthure as stated on Duncan's baptismal records

HI Virginia,

If that the Duncan whom you think is Peter's father. Interesting. Yes I would think it would be a Duncan born on the Isle of Lismore. I got the impression from the parish records that Peter's younger brother was born on Lismore and the fact that Peter's mothers family originated on Lismore makes me thing that Peter's father Duncan was born on Lismore. Of course I cant say for certain but sounds plausible. I am interested in that Kildalton connection as that is a parish far away in another part of Argyllshire. I never quite understood why there were Liivngstons in the parish records at Kildalton Isle of Islay in the 1720's before there were in the parish records of Lismore, Appin, and other parishes in Western Argyll. I am very interested in that Opr record you have found and would like to check that out for my own research project. THanks for sharing that.

regards,

Donald

Hi Roberta,

Keep an eye out for any info in the OPR's indicating that there is a Kildalton Parish Isle of Islay and Isle of Lismore Livingston connection. As far as I know the Livingstons in the 1720's at Kildalton were not highland Mcleas but lowland Livingston. By all accounts our highland people were still going by name Mconlea or Maclea in the 1720's in Western Argyll while in the Kildalton Parish entries these people were refering to themselves as Livingston. This is explained by an influx of lowland scots into Kildalton Parish prior to the 1720's I understood. There is unlikely any connection between these "early" Kildalton Livingstons of the 1720's and the Mcleas and Maconleas of Lismore. However if we can find an original document that proves otherwise lets take a look at it to be sure. I have been examing the problem of the Kildalton Livingstons for sometime now and have only the explanation that they were lowland Scots who settled there before the 1720's.

regards,

Donald

Hi Roberta,

Something has come up when I looked through your info on Daniel b. 1739 born at Kildalton Parish. I need clarification from the original parish record on his parents being Donald Livingston and Ann McInnis. I am very interested in taking a serious look at this baptismal or birth record. Thank-you for this information.

I was contacted by a descendant of another Livingston family that settled near Daniel and his several sons in Ontario. Daniel and his sons all petitioned the Government of Upper Canada for land after leaving the States. I have often wondered how many highland Livingstons were with Frasers Highlanders and General Wolfe at Quebec in 1759. Certainly Daniel Livingston was. He was also one of the first Livingstons to settle in Upper Canada.

regards,

Donald

Hi Donald;

Anna MacInnes is listed as the wife of John Livingstone alias Donald. Anna was born in 1708. Doesn't say where. Would you like me to search the place where she was born?

There is marriage 1 before her name suggesting, to me, that Donald/John may have been married twice.

Daniel was born, Kildalton, April 4, 1731. His son, Daniel Jr., was born 1762 and died about 1831. Married to Margaret Dickson or Dickinson b.c. 1778.
