Hello Jenna,

Your ancestor Donald was living next door to the family of Rory Campbell (who was dead in 1871 at the time of the census - he died in February of that year) and Neil Campbell who died in 1876. Rory and Neil were both the sons of Jeremiah Campbell of Barra. I believe Francis Campbell listed on 1871 was Roderick's son. Your Donald was likely their brother. These Campbells likely lived on the land of their father Jeremiah. The children of Jeremiah and his wife Anne (MacNeil) Campbell settled in the Big Pond, Middle Cape, Irish Cove, Red Islands areas.
