Mcnairn Family Genealogy Forum
Good News! I've made the connection that I was looking for.
This is a shortened version.
John McNairn, born 1745 in Wigtownshire Scotland came to America 1773; persecuted for supporting the crown, moved to Canada in 1778. United Empire Loyalist. Had seven children. His son Alexander McNairn was born in 1791. Alexander had three children that I am currently aware of. One of them was Elisha McNairn, born 1823. Elisha had four children. One of them was William Fletcher McNairn, born 1859, the gentleman about whom I posted on the original post. William was my great grandfather.
Susie, I think Joseph Alexander McNairn was probably one of John McNairn's grandchildren. I haven't found this out for sure yet, but I will let you know if I do.
