PEOPLE: MCRAES OF CANOE COVE
A lot of McRaes emigrated to Prince Edward Island in Canada during the 1800s. Amongst them, Farqhuar McRae, his wife and their children arrived from Kintail on the ship 'Ninth' in 1840.

One of Farqhuar’s sons, John, opened a clothing store in North Tryon and married Scottish emigrant Elizabeth Morrison. They moved west in the 1880s and settled in Everett, north of Seattle, USA, where their son James Everett McRae was born. James became head of the university bookstore in Seattle where he spent most of his life developing the wonderful university bookstore which remains today.

Another of Farqhuar’s sons, Finlay, settled with his wife Ann on a farm in Canoe Cove on the southern coast of the island and grew their family to include a total of 13 children. One of them, Donald McRae, became a lawyer who was instrumental in the creation of Rotary's 4th Avenue of Service and after whom a Peace Award was named in his memory.
