Re: Malcolm Livingstone - Salem Mass.

I suspected this was the same John a long time ago and I think I can say that it is the same person. It all fits now.

Re: Malcolm Livingstone - Salem Mass.

I think I have somewhat of a breakthrough on Malcolm's father. I know from his wife Sarah's will that her husband John died sometime before 1850, because she was a widow at that time. I also know that their family name was somewhat interchangeable in that it either was written Livingstone or Lavings...

Re: First Highland Livingstons in America?

Hi Grant

Can you tell us a little about your family? I suspect most highland Livingstones would have come to the US as sailors or soldiers. The rest will likely chime in on this.

Angus Livingstone Reunion 2012

Hi All I just thought I would post a photo of the participants in the reunion of Angus Livingstone of PEI, held in Dundas, August 4 and 5. He was born in 1856 and his father Colin moved to PEI from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia in 1865, when he bought a 96 acre farm in Forest Hill, Prince Edward Island. ...

Re: Nova Scotia/PEI Livingstone Research

Yes....just going to the post office to mail the DNA sample out now. I went to the post office yesterday and apparently it is a civic holiday everywhere else in Canada except here, but the post office was closed. It has been very hot here. The reunion on the weekend was bearable and we had about 130...

Re: Nova Scotia/PEI Livingstone Research

Now that we know that John had children on PEI in 1841 and 1844, we know there is a strong PEI connection with this family. Below is the 1841 census for any Livingstons of interest. Please understand part of the census documents did not survive. I believe the most important documents regarding this ...

Re: Nova Scotia/PEI Livingstone Research

Hi All I have been to the archives in Charlottetown and have copied this out of the Family file the archives have on Livingston's. Someone submitted this to the family file, but the archives does not have the entire book. I believe this is chapter two and Dr. Jim St. Clair either wrote the book it c...
