McPhails and McMillans of Drumlemble

Postby FionaMc » Thu Jul 08, 2010 2:12 pm

Hi
I am looking for any descendants of Daniel (aka Donald) McPhail and Agnes McQuikkan (Wilkinson) they were married in campbeltown in 1842 although they lived in Drumlemble. They were my greatgreatgrandparents. They are buried in Kilkivan cemetery. They had 3 children Daniel (Donald), Angus and Margaret who lived past infancy (possibly more). Margaret married Allan MacMillan (McMillan) in 1877 and became the mother of 9 children. The whole family emigrated to New Zealand between 1908 -1912. I would love to hear from any of their descendants..

thanks Fiona McMillan (Australia)

Hi Fiona.

Firstly..., you'll probably find that many of your ancestors were coal miners. Drumbemble was a mixture of farmers and pit workers. All my family came from there !

If you surf..., http://www.familysearch.org/eng/search/ ... esults.asp you'll certainly find the family name. Even using any name connected to Drumlemble and the date, will allow you to click on the "house-next-door," like that you can voyage arround the village. Good luck..., Iain.

Hello from Otago NZ... I am the great-granddaughter of Allan McMiillan and Margaret McPhail who arrived in NZ 1908. My grandmother was their 3rd child, Agnes, who married Duncan Smith and followed them to NZ in1912. You may like to contact the grandchildren of Allan McMillan and Margaret McPhail who have done comprehensive research on the Mcmillan history and family tree; Ian MacMillan -son of Allan jnr (ian.myrie@xtra.co.nz) and Margaret Stuart-daughter of Margaret- Maggie (russell-s@clear.net.nz).
The descendants of Duncan McKinnon Smith and Agnes Wilkinson McMillan are planning a centennial of arrival reunion, to honour our grandparents, at Easter 2012 and any family histories would be appreciated to include in a publication. We especially would like information on Duncan Smith, shipbuilder on the Clyde, (Dumbarton and Greenock) early in the 1900's ( and maybe a medal winning dancer). Prior, he lived in Campbeltown and his family was from Gigha. Would like to know where they were from before that. I can be contacted at doreenedwards69@hotmail.com Would love to hear from you....Doreen

Hi Amanda

Sorry about the two year delay but I haven't been here for a while. The family you have written about is related to me. Daniel McPhail MacMillan was my great-uncle. I met his daughter Pamela and her daughter in Sydney a few years ago.

Cheers
Fiona
