Hi Barry, 

Perhaps Forest Hill was just a temporary residence or she moved. Dr. St. Clair does not have a lot of info on John Livingston Sr., but it is reasonably certain that he and his wife Catharine or Mary Campbell originated from Mull and settled at Mull River, Cape Breton in the 1820's. There is a theory making the rounds that John and Catharine are the John Livingston and Catharine Campbell recorded in the Mull Parish records that according to a surviving Mull document left Mull around the year 1821. I have all this stuff including the document on file somewhere here. 

Dr. St. Clair has not found a land record for John Livingston Sr. at Mull River. No petition to the Crown for land or anything like that apparently. I would like to double check that with him as I am curious exactly how the family came into possession of that land and what the condition was. I will check my information and see what precisely Dr. St. Clair said about this. I do recall asking him about the possibility of land records for John Livingston sr. in the 1820's at Mull river we could locate. 

John I understand died around 1840 or before. The eldest son John Jr. I believe was born around 1800 perhaps 1808 if he is the son of the John Livingston and Catharine Campbell in the Mull Parish records that left their parish in 1821. It is a tantalising theory because as I found this particular family left Mull in the 1820's and had a large family which oddly enough included a older son John, a son Colin and and son Alexander all about the right age of those we know lived in Cape Breton in close proximity to each other. Perhaps a odd coincidence but it is definitely pointing to this family as the one that settled at Mull River. Sorry I dont have my notes and cant remember off the top of my head the Parish but I may have mentioned in past forum messages. It is easy to access previous messages on the forum

regards, 

Donald
