Thanks Jill for your response to my post. I am forwarding your email on to my brother who has done most of our family history. I have looked at your web page and don't see anything that really ties into us, perhaps my brother may. I did find it interesting that you mention the name McGregor. It is common knowledge that McLeisters are true McGregors. We believe there are a number of variations on the spelling of the name and have found individuals in our direct line whose name is spelt differently, but we believe McLeister is the correct spelling according to all official books on the genealogy of McGregors. You also mention a John Edward, which I believe is a name we have in our family line though it is a different John Edward than yours. Also you mention the name O'Donnel. Our grandfather, whose father John McLeister came from Ireland in 1942 at the age of 10 yrs, was named Elbert O'Donnel McLeister, and we thought it well could have been a family name. My brother has extensive records, photos, etc. which does prove our lineage.If my brother recognizes any common data in your files, I am sure he will contact you. His name is Delbert Campbell and together he and I have put together a large volume of family history on our line of McLeisters since they arrived in America and he is presently working with someone in Ireland, to trace them there. We believe they left Scotland, went to Ireland, and from Ireland to the U.S. Good luck on your search...Pat Johnson
