Title: Archibald McDonald's Narrative published 1816
Posted by: Donald (Livingstone) Clink
Date: 16 June 2009

I Archibald McDonald's Narrative he states that he arrived at REd River with his mostly Sutherlandshire settlers with a few from the Island of Islay on 22nd June 1814 rather than 21st of June as other sources have suggested. As Archibald led this group of settlers I am inclined to think his date is probably is likely more accurate. 

According to REd River Colony records Charles McLean of Mull is given credit for recruiting both the Mull and Islay settlers with the party that arrived with Owen Keveny in October of 1812, but this does not take into account the recruiting efforts of Archibald McDonald in the highlands in the Spring of 1812. I am suspecting that he may have been actually involved in the Isle of Islay recruiting, but cant prove this as yet. 

regards,

Donald
