When you say you are planning a trip "up" to southern Ontario, I am guessing you are travelling from the US. If you have a map of Ontario, you can follow the
Queen Elizabeth Highway (QEW), to Mississauga. Follow Hwy. 10(Mississauga Rd.) north through Orangeville to Shelburne (slight dog-leg to the left). Then follow #24 towards Collingwood. It will take you through many villages with Islay roots, and right into Duntroon.
Just looking through some of my info on Peel county Sinclairs: John sinclair, b. 1787, married Jane Currie...daughter Jane Sinclair married John Currie, 1860
,(son of Duncan Currie) buried St. Andrew Cem. Caledon. Children Isabella Currie, John sinclair Currie.
How about this:
Donald McKechnie, 1815-1897, came to Canada in 1833. Donald Mc. and Duncan McArthur bought land 100 ac- east of half lot 5, conc. 10, Erin
Donald retired to Erin in 1895 - he owned 400 acres. He married Margaret Young of Erin (1826-1899). Their children: Alexander, Jane, *Mrs. Gilbert McArthur, of Erin, John, James, Daniel.
I think the last paragraph came from information originally supplied by Miss
Margaret Near of Toronto, who is a descendant of Donald McKechnie. If you are following this particular branch, I can give you her address.
Hope it helps,
