Greetings! Looking for a MacRae family from Kintail who immigrated to Cape Breton (Braddeck, Middle River) and are related to shipbuilders. This is what I know:

3 siblings:

Mary MacRae 1825-1883
Roderick MacRae 1826-1890
Isabella "Bella" MacRae about 1829-1906

They were all born in Baddeck, Victoria County, Cape Breton, NS. Their parents were from Kintail, Scotland. The 3 siblings all migrated to Huron County, Ontario. They were related to the men who built the ships that sailed to Australia and New Zealand.

Mary married Neil Bain MacKenzie (also from Middle River 1821-1921) c.1848 in Middle River, Cape Breton. Neil's parents: Ian "John" Bain Gruen MacKenzie and Margaret MacDonald.

Roderick married Christina MacDonald (1836-1913) c. 1856 in Middle River, Cape Breton.

Bella married a Mr. McKay

Hoping you might have something on this family. Mary and Neil are my 3rd great grandparents.

Thank you in advance,

Cherie Tobon
