John son of Duncan/Dorothy Livingstone Ballimachillican

Post by Canadian Livingstone »

Hi All,

Pertaining to my earlier Lismore Livingstone posting regarding John Livingstone born abt. 1830 son of Duncan Livingstone and Christy McLean of Archoran, Argyll there was another John Livingstone born abt. 1828 who was the son of a Duncan Livingstone and his wife Sally Livingston of Ballimachillican, Lismore. Most interestingly this other John Livingstone's father Duncan Livingstone was the youngest son of Baron John Livingstone 1746-1835. Unlike John Livingstone of Archoran, Argyll, previously discussed in a posting, John Livingstone of Ballimachillican, Lismore never left Lismore. The surviving Lismore census records record this other John Livingstone's history residing in Lismore with his father and mother Duncan Livington and Sally Livingston and thereafter.
