According to the Appin Parish records, John Livingston Sr. (born abt. 1766 according to 1841 Scottish Census) and his wife Christy Graham resided at Coelard Appin in the early 1800's where son John Livingston Jr. was born or baptized March 25, 1804 and son Duncan Livingston was born or baptized October 30, 1806

The son John Livingston Jr. married Elizabeth Harriet Livingston born 1803 of Old Miln, Appin, Argyll daughter of Dugald Livingston and Margaret McCallum of Old Miln, Appin. John Livingston Jr. and his wife Elizabeth Harriet Livingston's daughter Christy was born or baptized June 06 1831 at Coelard, a son Donald (Daniel) Livingston was born or baptized June 15, 1835 at Coelard, a daughter Margaret Livingston was born or baptized at Coalard and a son Duncan Livingston was born or baptized Nov.3,1841 at Archaclach or Ardnaclach, Appin, Argyll

In the 1841 Scottish Census states that John Livingston Sr. born abt. 1766 age 75 a Tailor by occupation apparently formerly of Coelard and now a widower is residing at Ardnaclach with his son John Livingston jr, age 35 also a Tailor, his wife Elizabeth and their daughter Christy age 5, Donald age 4, and Margaret age 2 (A son Duncan b. 1841 is born after the 1841 Census was conducted that year.) A daughter Mary was later born in 1847 before the family of John Livingston Jr. left for Canada. First child named Christy presumingly after John Livington Sr's wife Christy of Coelard. Not known when mother Christy or father John Livingston Sr. died presumingly in Ardnaclach, Appin.

Sometime between the year 1847 and 1851 John Livingstone jr, his wife Elizabeth Harriet Livingston of Ardnaclach, Appin and their children likely left Appin, Argyll and settled eventually in Plympton Township, Lambton County in what is in present day Ontario, Canada

2. Duncan Livingstone baptized March 30,1806
