Brickwalls: Seeking Information for Cameron John Campbell and Elizabeth McLauchlan of Scotland

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

I am searching for records for Cameron John Campbell in Scotland and for Elizabeth’s parents.
Cameron John Campbell b. April 18, 1832 in Scotland, married Elizabeth McLauchlan b. September 10, 1832. I cannot find a marriage record. They had children John Cameron, Duncan, Jessie, Archibald, Marwood and Euphemia. I found a birth record for John Cameron Campbell b. September 19, 1832 to Captain Moses Campbell’ Achendale and Jessy Cameron at Kilmonivaig. I do not know if this is the correct person because I cannot find any other records. Finding the correct record for a Campbell in Scotland is a daunting process.
I know that Elizabeth McLauchlan Campbell’s father was John and her mother may have been Euphemia. All of them lived in Mosa Township and Ekfrid Township in the mid 1800′s according to the census. The McLauchlans apparently were born in Scotland but I cannot find any records for them either.
Any help that you can give me would be appreciated.

Highland Games: A little bit of Scotland in Ontario

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Whether they are held in Fergus Ontario, Antigonish Nova Scotia, the States, or Edinburgh Scotland, summer is high season for Highland Games and Clan Gatherings.

For those of us with no clan affiliations, but would still like to inject a wee bit of Scotland into our summer, here are a few ideas to help point you in the right direction:
