My Great-Grandfather was born at Strond,Isle of Harris Nov.1,1841. his name was Malcolm McDermid(sic), his father was Donald Mcdermid,mothers name was Sarah, last name unknown. Family emigrated to Cape Breton around 1843, settled on Crowdis Mountain(Not a very hospitable place to start farming). some of Malcolm's siblings were, Margaret Married Angus MacRitchie of Little Narrows. Donald (Don't know what happened to him). Una(Eunice) beleive she went to California. and John(youngest may have settled at Baddeck). Malcolm later Bought a farm at Middle River(Much Nicer place to farm), he later married the daughter of his first cousin, my Great Grandmother was Annie McDermid (Daughter of John A.McDermid and Rachel ?). she had one brother Murdock. Annie was born 1862, died 1952, Malcolm died 1911.
I beleive Malcolm also had a sister married to a Dougherty at Baddeck.
any of this sound familiar to any one.
on my grandmothers grade ten certificate name is spelled McDiarmid.
