Query: I am trying to find out what happened to my ancestors. John McMillan and his wife Marion McLeamont left Edinburgh, SCT abt. September 1, 1787. They arrived in NC almost a year later with a small child born on board ship. It is rumored that they travelled with one of John's brothers, possibly William, but he never arrived in NC with them, that we can find. I am trying to see if they may of possibly land in another port for a period of time to get John's brotehr established before they travelled on to NC and their land grants they had for there. I have been told with the time of year they left SCT in some cases NS was used as a layover location, due to the weather, before travellers moved on either in land or south to America. Is there anyone who may be familiar with this pratice and which port may of been used, I don't know the ship name, and what records may have survived from that period, 1787 - 1788? If I can find John's brother it would confirm this, his name was William McMillan, b. abt. 1763.

His son Robert b.Dec 27 1864 in Sydney, Cape Breton and wife Margaret b. Jul 16 1865 in NFLD show up on the 1901 census as living in the city. There are no children listed. I have been told that Robert is buried in the Holy Cross Cemetery, Halifax and died in the early 1900's. They were of Roman Catholic faith. This is such an odd name and the family seems to have come and gone. I will answer all e-mail and share information.

Surnames: DUFF
Query: Hello! In a microfilm indexing of Loyalist muster lists from the LDS Family History Library, a John DUFF and a David DUFF were noted as privates in the Loyal American Regiment commanded by Beverly ROBINSON. I haven't found much about this regiment, but apparently it was raised in New York (state)and many of the regiment were taken by ship to Shelburne, NS at the close of the Revolutionary War.
If possible, I'd like to determine if Shelburne was where John and David DUFF were located, following the War. Would there be exisiting records where I could get some indication as to whether John and David DUFF were among those taken to Shelburne? Would they have been granted some land, perhaps, for their service? if so, do records still exist of such land grants? Or is there something else that might show if this was the direction they headed?
