Re: Patience McRae. She was my great, great, great grandmother. She did marry Walter McFarlane of the 74th Regiment about 1795 and lived in Digdegaush,N.B. They had 5 children, Walter, Robert (my great, great grandfather), John Henry "Black Henry", Archibald and David.
Robert married Catherine McGuire. Their daughter, Mary Ann,married John Graham. They and some of Robert's sons came west to Denman Island, B.C. about 1878 then some sailed to Hawaii and lived there. Catherine McGuire McFarlane is buried on Hilo, Hawaii. Members of the family are in contact by email from new zealand and hawaii. On ancestry.ca it is the Graham family tree.
However, I have been seeking information on Patience McRae. Was her father Alexander or Isaac McRae? Some information on the web states she was part of the Alexander McRae family, though he was married to Flora. Also, she appears to have a brother Jude. Can you provide background on Patience?
