where they actually physically lived in the Knoydart Scotland area


Received this e mail request recently from Australia any comments, advice, suggestions would be welcomed, either directly to Ann or leave a comment below

Name: Ann Harrington
E-mail: aharrington @
surnames: Macdonalds of Loup 
Date: 1700-1800
query: Alex,
I am descended from Donald Macdonald and Catherine Macgillis of Knoydart. My area of interest is information like where they grew up with their parents such as what farm, church, etc. and also if there is a paper link that shows when the first ancestor of theirs came to Knoydart and exactly where they came from. Does your data touch on any of this? Such as, I know the ancestral lineage of Donald but have no information as to where they actually physically lived in the Knoydart area or elsewhere. This is what I am hoping to research. Just not sure how to go about it. I am down the line Donald and Catherine Macgillis Macdonald, Angus Macdonald and Catherine Macdonald, Donald McDonald and Elizabeth Cass, Elihu Joseph Cass and Mary Ann Moore, John Eugene McDonald and Mary Ellen Murphy and my final direct line McDonald, my grandmother, Orpha Margaret McDonald born in a lumbercamp in Walhalla Michigan in 1891. Has anyone discovered the link to where the Macdonald of Loup in Knoydart actually came from, generation by generation? Proof not theory?
Thanks Alex. I appreciate all of this research. I am hoping to make a trip to Knoydart in about three years. Ann,
