These 11 letters are in the possession of Donald McGilp's great-great grandchild. Written between 1851 and 1864, they are a window into the life of Knapdale people at that time. The McGilp family gave its name to the town "Lochgilphead." In North America, this name has changed to "McKillop."
These symbols refer to names that appeared in a book by Hugh McColl, published in 1904, and re-published again in 1979. It is entitled, "Some sketches of the Early Highland Pioneers of the County of Middlesex; originally prepared for the Gaelic Society of Toronto." I have included ONLY the names of people who are explicitly identified as having emigrated from Knapdale or Lochgilphead. The dates given are the year in which the person arrived in Middlesex County. Most people on this list arrived in Canada the 1820s and 1830s.
