Hi Barry, 

Regarding your July 8th posting a few things from my info from Dr. St. Clair.

He believes that the Mull River Livingstones settled in the 1820's at Mull River along with other Scots from Mull. While the census records indicated that old Kate and Alexanders wife Annie were born in PEI there was no evidence that John Livingston Sr. had a PEI connection. Colin's son or sons were in PEI where he died in 1867 but clearly he had been a resident of Cape Breton and born in Scotland, so it difficult to pinpoint a PEI family connection there. The PEI LIvingstone connection that we do know for certain is with Old Kate's and Annie's Livingston's family if any. The census clearly indicates that they were born in PEI. Dr. St. Clair however indicated that "other Livingstons" came from Nine Mile Creek, PEI I suspect this would be old Kate's family who might be connected to the Nine Mile Creek Livingstons of PEI decended from Donald and Mary Livingstone. I had suspected this and it makes sense if it is true. Dr. St. Clair was unaware that some Whycocomagh Livingstons(Angus son of Colin and his brother JOhn)Livingstones had gone to PEI but he was not surprised.

The reason that Old Kate Livingston, John Livingston Juniors widow was buried in Whycocomagh is that there is no cemetery in Mull River where she lived on Livingston Mountain. 


Alexander Livingston and his wife Annie (old Kates younger sister) were the first Livingstons to live on Skye Mountain. Skye Mountain is where they lived at Whycocomagh. I suspect ALexander lived somewhere else and that some where else before his marriage was Mull RIver. 

Livingstones of Mull RIver (ie. John Livingston Sr. old Kate) never had a land grant or completed a petition for a land grant in the 1820's. He believes the family purchased the land. I was wondering then if there would be a record of the land transactions going back to the original purchase tranaction in the land office of the Township in Cape Breton where Mull River is today located or the Inverness County records. Also there is the Cape Breton Land Papers. Hopefully we can eventually check out the status of documents with land transaction information. As the Mull River Livingstons are likely your ancestors that is John Livingston Sr. b.1770's Mull, Scotland and Catharine Campbell. it is worth it some point to see if there is record of land purchases at Mull River although there may not be. 

The letter of reference that Mr. St. Clair has circa 1821 indicates that John Livingston and Catharine Campbell are natives of Kilninian and Kilmore, Island of Mull , County of Argyll which they have lived since infancy. Also information on payment for their passage 30 pounds for John and family of 9 aboard the brig "Adventure" bound of Pictou.

regards, 

Donald
