Hi there- I was just browsing and came across your message. My mothers maiden name is darrach and she is from P.E.I. I know their ancestors are from Colonsay Scotland. My grandmother Catherine MacPhail Darrach was born Sept. 10 1898 on the island and died Sept.06 1983 in Toronto, Ontario. She had nine children, 4 boys and 5 girls, my mother being the oldest girl and second born. She is still alive and turned 90 on Sept. 30 of this year. All the boys have passed on but all the girls are still alive. My grandfather was Duncan Darrach. He died when my mother was 16 or 17 on the island felling trees. My mother Jane MacPhail Darrach (MacWilliams) had three children. We are all still very much alive. Perhaps we are related. Let me know. We had a reunion of the Darrach's in 2000 on the island. |Because both of my parents were born on the island, I seem to have so many relatives I don't even know. I married an American 31 years ago and ended up in Ohio but I still have a major connection to the island. Let me know who you are and where you fit in with the Darrach's. Bye for now. Looking forward to hearing from you I believe you mean Canoe Cove P.E.I.
