In Reply to: Family From New Brunswick-McAllister/Whitney by Dusty Williams of 4952

Hi, I know it's been awhile since you posted your McALLISTER querie but a new website has come out from the Mormon's at so I checked it out. I found this about Daisy, d/o Allan WHITNEY and Clara McALLISTER. I checked the 1901 census at and I checked and saw that the Allan WHITNEY family were missing so it looks like for some reason they were in Wisconsin for awhile when Daisy was born. Maybe a family connection there?

Now the lineage of David WHITNEY from the book "Old North Esk - on the Miramichi" by H.D. Hamilton....

David WHITNEY b. 1 Apr 1826 - d. 2 May 1915 m. Magdalene RUSSELL

David was s/o Samuel WHITNEY 18 Sep 1784 - 12 May 1860 and Sarah YOUNG 19 Sep 1786 - 3 Feb 1868 and they m. 19 Jun 1806 from a Family Bible.

Samuel was s/o Ebenezer WHITNEY who was a Pre-Loyalist, one of the first white families in NB. It is not proven where he was from. He m. 17 Jan 1769 in Sheffield,NB, Huldah MOOERS d/o Peter & Mary (HOW) MOOERS of Maugerville,NB. Ebenezer was the progenator of all WHITNEYs in North Esk, NB. He made huge masts for sailing ships. His tombstones says he d. 15 Aug 1810, aged 69.
Magdalene RUSSELL (m. David WHITNEY) was d/o John RUSSELL ca 1826 - ca 1860 and Sarah WHITNEY whom he m. 10 Jun 1852 at Whitney,NB. She was a sister of David WHITNEY and her dates are 21 Apr 1828 - 1906. She m/ 2nd John ATKINS.

John RUSSELL immigrated with his parents John RUSSELL Sr. & Margaret HUTCHINSON from Clydebank, Scotland around 1832. No b and d dates are given.
Now the McALLISTERs are in this book too. But there is no David. However I have been in genealogy for 40 years and I have seen many cases where it was hard to tell the written name "David" from "Daniel". So I believe your David is really Daniel McALLISTER ( or maybe THIS book is wrong?) Anyway Daniel McALLISTER b. ca 1854 - 19 Jun 1928 m. Mary JOHNSTON then 2nd Sophia E. SOMERS, then 3rd B. DUNNETT and 4th Cecily MULLIN.

Daniel was the s/o __?__ McALLISTER & Elizabeth MATTHEWS. The widow Elizabeth married 2nd 15 Apr 1861 Robert TAYLOR.

__?__ McALLISTER was possibly Jared ca1828 - ca1859 s/o James McALLISTER ca1796 - ca 1851 and Mary IRVINE from Scotland ca 1820. Elizabeth MATTHEWS, Jared's? wife was d/o Donald MATTHEWS ca 1795 - Jul 1879 and Hannah TOZIER/TOZER ca 1803 - 1871. They m. about 1819 and he was listed as being from Prince Edward Island. Hannah TOZER was d/o Jared TOZER 4 Apr 1764(Lyme, CT) - 22 Nov 1850 and Sarah Eunice IVES, a d/o Capt. David IVES, a New England Loyalist. Jared TOZIER was a Patriot who chose to move to NB in 1789 with his Loyalist in-laws. Sarah IVES d. in 1844.


Back to David/Daniel E. McALLISTER.... his wife Mary JOHNSTON 10 Nov 1858 - 21 Jan 1883 was d/o Thomas JOHNSTON bapt 31 Mar 1803 - ca 1871 and Catherine Amelia HALL. Thomas and Amelia m. 12 Aug 1825 when she was only 13, a native of England.

Thomas JOHNSTON was s/o James JOHNSTON 1 Jul 1780 - 14 Dec 1867 and Mary BELL. James was b. Ecclefechan,Hoddom Parish, Dumfrieshire,Scotland. James and Mary came over in 1817. They were buried at St. Stephen's Cemetery in the Miramichi area.

So I hope this makes your genalogical day. :)
