* Peter McLellan of Orkney*

Updated July 20, 2006


I am researching the McLellan family from the Orkney islands.
I am a descendent of Peter McLellan who was born in Orkney in 1840. He left Orkney circa 1870 with his wife Mary Hay whom he married in 1869 in Sanday Orkney. They travelled to Rhode Island and settled in Providence. Peter died 11 March 1901 and is buried in Swan Point Cemetery in Providence Rhode Island.

Prior to his marriage to Mary Hay he fathered an illigitimate child to a Jane Guthrie - this child was also called Peter and was born 20 September 1866 on the island of Burray.

I am especially keen to find out about Peter's life in Rhode Island and information about his wife and children.
