Title: Duncan Livingstone of Ohio Rediscovered

Hi Jewel and Kyle,

I think the route to go might be to find descendants of Duncan's Uncles that lived with the family in Scioto County, Ohio. THere may be potential DNA project particpant there who would be a descendant of the famous Donald Livingstone of Morvern. If we had a DNA project participant from this family we would have DNA from the Savary, Morvern Livingstones of DOnald Livingstone of Morvern probably to add to the DNA from kin of Dr. David Livingstone and DNA from the Bachuil Livingstones. That would be quite an accomplishment And of course we could compare all three with other Livingstones out there. 

I know that there was a notion that Donald Livingtone (1728-1816) of Morvern was a brother of Dr. Livingstone's grandfather or great-grandfather. As there are at least three theories regarding the origin of Dr. Livingstone's family I have identified in research on the Doctor one cant be too certain what the truth is. I am leaning towards a Ballchulish ancestral connection but in no way I am 100% certain of it at the moment. I am thinking from the information on the two families that Donald Livingston of Morvern came from Achnacree and that Dr. Livingstone's ancestors before settling in Mull/Ulva originated in Ballachulish, but that is from the information I have and there is no 100% guarantee that is correct. Rob Livingston I am sure had his favourite theory or theories as well. 

Certainly if the DNA project obtains a DNA sample from descendants of this Savary Livingstone family we can probably answer this question. Then again a match might just mean that they decended from a common ancestor 300 or 500 years ago. I am not certain it would prove they were brothers with 100% certainty. Still such a DNA particpant would help us to identify clan members who are linked to the Savary Morvern Livingstones. So it would be a great thing indeed if we found descendants and they were interested in participating in the DNA project. 

That being said I think we should continue to look at Uncle John Livingstone in Oneida County, NY or whereever he was residing and see where that takes us in turns of finding any sons and his settlement origins there. 
regards,

Donald
