Canada: Prince Edward Island
I am searching for information on Robert Neil McKay(b.1832 d.1876-7), his brother Hugh McKay(b.1843d.1888), and their parents,John McKay and Janet Anderson. Robert Neil and Hugh were born in Murray Harbor South, PEI. Robert was a mariner/fisherman. He moved to Liverpool England where he met and married first Eliza Armstrong and had one child, Janet. After Eliza's death,Robert Neil married her sister Margaret Armstrong(b.1845 d.1880). Robert Neil and Margaret had three children -- Eliza (my ggrandmother),Henrietta,Robert Neil --in England then immigrated to Gloucester Massachusetts in 1868 where they has four --Margaret,Rebecca,John and Hugh --more children. Robert was lost at sea in 1876-77--under mysterious circumstances, according to family lore. Hugh McKay,a blacksmith, was living in Glocester with Robert and Margaret, married Margaret. They had one child,Isabella.
Any information on the family of John McKay and his sons would be greatly apreciated.
