Comments: Enjoyed your site very much and hope to find a connection to your Chisholm Line. My Great Grandmother was Annie Chisholm dau of Daniel Chisholm and Catherine MacLean. Daniel was the son of Angus Chisholm and Catherine McCaron. They were from Nova Scotia. In the 1881 Census of Canada. Daniel(1838-1917) and Catherine(1844-1885) were living in St.Hilaire, New Brunswick, Canada. Catherine MacLean Chisholm died in 1885 and is buried in St.Hilaire. Daniel Chisholm then married Catherine Lahey. He is buried in Millinocket, Maine. One of his sons, Daniel lived in Mn. and he had a son named Lyle Chisholm, who lived in Cass Lake, Mn. Catherine MacLean was the dau. of Roderick MacLean and Catherine MacEachern. This information was given to me by my Aunt. I would love to hear from anyone who may know anything of this Chisholm, MacLean, MacEachern or Lahey Families. Thanks again for a great site and will add it to my favorites so I can visit often.

Comments: Have only found out recently,from an unexpected family source,that our Daniel MacKinnon born 1818 was actually born Aug 13, 1813 in Antigonish to Daniel MacKinnon born 1775 in Antigonish and Mary MacDonald, born 1780 Antigonish. Is it at all possible that with my stone wall situation on the Daniels, that they were actually Donald's? Has anybody heard of this before? Will try to get a birth cert. but if anybody has these people, let me know.

They had children (at least three) circa 1903. I've been told that the name Fraser comes in somewhere too, but not sure how. Thank you for posting your info. Probably a connection in there somewhere.

Comments: BEAUTIFUL website with so many pictures. What a great looking family you have. I found your website while searching the name "Sherber" because that is how most people seem to pronounce Surber. I'm working on finding and hopefully documenting some of my Surber ancestors from 1795 - 1840 in VA, TN, OH, and IN. The Surber family was from Switzerland. They've been over here since 1735. It looks like our lines never crossed, despite the name similarity, but "hello" anyway and good luck with your research. I enjoyed my visit!

Comments: Am looking for info on FREDERICK Chisholm born 3rd October 1856 - understand he was born in Kent, England. We understand that he was orphaned at an 'early age' and went to Tumut (NSW, Australia) - he was apprenticed into the carpentery trade. He married Chyarlotte Hibbins in Tumut 1883 and died in Tumut 1946. He had a brother called David who was at his wedding in Tumut but cannot find anything before and after that date. Can anyone help? Found your page through FamilySearch - very good. All the best for the future!

Comments: Dear Sherbers, just dropped in after reading your post on Nova Scotia. My Frasers, came over from Strathglas about the same time as your Chisholms from Strathglas. John Fraser, married to Jean Chisholm. They had 11 children, all came and settled in Antigonish. The oldest son was William Fraser, Bishop of Arichat. Sons Colin, married a Chisholm; son Thomas married a Catherine Chisholm; son John, married a Chisolm; daughter Jean Fraser married Donald Chisholm. My gg-grandfather, the son of John Fraser and Jean Chisholm married Ann MacRae. Many are buried at Jt. Joseph's Cemetery, Antigonish. Other sons of John not married to Chisholms but whose children may have married Chisholms are: Austin Fraser, married to Catherine MacRae; David Fraser married to a Fraser; Alexander, spouse unknown. So way back there could be some connections as these families tended to stay with friends and neighbors when they came over, settled in the same areas and marrried into familiar families. It seems Antigonish was the base where many Strathglas families settled. And back in the home country, they were intermarried and neighbors as well. Give a call and we can exchange more

Comments: Hi there.. I'm searchimg my Macdonald's and am currently stuck! My grandfather was John D. Macdonald born feb. 3, 1910 in Inverness, died dec. 23,1964 in New Waterford Cape Breton. WE BELIEVE HE MAY HAVE BEEN ADOPTED, But his parents that raised him were Alexander S.Macdonald born approx. 1866 [ where ? ] and died oct. 9 1939 in New Waterford C.B. marreid to Isobel McDonald born approx. 1878 [ from Lake Ainslie C.B. ] AND DIED NOV. 27 1970 in New Waterford C.B. Alex , john , my father and his brothers worked in the coal mines of New Waterford for years. It was the unspoken secret that my grandfather John was adopted ,but adoptions in those days aren't like today and I believe he was just taken in and raised by Alex and Isobel.However he went by the Macdonald name , so we are wondering if he may have been illegitimate from a sister of Alex. or Isobel since both sides were Macdonald's? Anyway , I am waiting for his birth cert. and hoping that will confirm something as his death cert. listed Alex. and Isobel , which would be natural since they raised him.I have much info on Isobel's Mcdonals from Lake Ainslie, but nothing on Alex. Any help would be appreciated.Thanks A.Batten
