Thanks for your research and shared information. My McKinnons came from Skye. Some say from Uig...others Kilmallie. My great great grandfather Ewen McKinnon was born on Skye in 1789 and died in Prince Edward Island in 1855. Anyone know where his folks lived? Believe they were Donald or John McKinnon and Catharine McLean???

I'm seeking info on the McLeods (father Norman b 1762, sons Murdoch, Roderick, and Neil, and three married daughters) who were probably on the same ship as your ancestors, Clarrie. The Mary Kennedy carried 85 heads of households from Uig, Skye to Prince Edward Island in 1829.
