Ray sorry to hear about the shoulder, hope you mend quickly.
I'll tell you what I know about my MacDermid kin, my uncle said that they came from Skye, but I found that his Grandfather Malcolm MacDermid was born at Strond, Harris.
The MacDermid's emigrated in 1843 to Cape Breton Island.
The oldest member of the family was one Ann MacDermid, I believe she was my great-grandfather's grandmother, she was listed as 97 years old in the 1871 census for Victoria county, Living with her at that time were Archie aged 65, Son
Hannah aged 55 Daughter
John Aged 32 Grandson
Rachel Aged 35 (John's Wife)
Murdoch aged 11 (John's Son)
Ann Aged 9 (John's Daughter,My Great-Grandmother)

My other MacDermid's are.
Donald Age 65
Sarah Age 56
Malcolm Age 30 (Ann's Husband and my Great-Grandfather.)(Son of Donald)
Margaret Age27 (Daughter)
Donald Age 25 (Son)
Una Age 23 (Daughter)
John Age 18 (Son)
Yes Malcolm and Annie were Cousins and they was quite a differnce in age, but they did well they had a nice farm and brought up five healthy children. Ann & Murdoch as well as some of Malcolms siblings were born in Nova Scotia.
Well good luck with the shoulder and I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
P.S. I will write again soon, and tell you the particulars on the book.
