Susan R. Leitch U.E.

Certified Saskatchewan Researcher

Saskatoon, SK

The Leitchs I am researching settled in Erin Township, Wellington County, Ontario, Canada between 1851 and 1861. My great grandfather, JOHN LEITCH, was born in the neighbouring county of Peel in 1846 but later moved to the Erin area where he married ELIZABETH McDONALD. His brothers and sisters were: twin Flora, half siblings--Barbara, Peter, Annie, Ronald, Archibald and Maggie.

John Leitch and Elizabeth McDonald had seven children: John Wesley, Jessie, Flora, Donald, Archibald, Malcolm and Elizabeth.

Our ancestors came from Islay, Argyllshire, Scotland in 1833 but the town and the parish are still pieces of the puzzle of which I am uncertain. There is a strong possibility that the parish is Kilchoman and the specific farm is Kendrocid. Some of the older ancestors names are Ronald, Archibald and Donald.

Included in my Leitch research, besides McDonald, are the family names of: HURREN, PEER, McLEAN, McMILLAN, MILLOY, McCANNELL, PATTERSON, and BLACK. My maternal side of the family includes: LEE, GAGEN, HOLLAND, SCOTT, WILSON, SECORD, SAGAR, GORING, MANN, HUTT, STULL and DURHAM.

Can you help me or can I help you???
