I am trying to connect to a branch of the Mcrae clan that come from scotland about early 1820's and settled outside of the Montreal area. They first called in Mt Johnson area, then later Mt Saint Gregorire La Grand. They all lived in a parish called St Mary....later called St Marie De Monnaire..
It starts with a Christopher McRae that was born about 1787 in Ross and Crom.. He married Selenda Phelps in 1817 in the All Saints Church in Dunham quebec. He died the 5 May 1858 in Illinois. The family left Quebec, moved in Ontario, then into Illinois where he stayed. His son, Alexander McRae born in 1818, moved to Michigan, Sanalac county....
I suspect that his father may have been John McRae that was married to a Catherine McInstosh. They appear in the early censuses of Quebec. He may have been a school master. I am pretty sure John and Catherine did not leave Quebec area. The county in Quebec that they were part of was Iberville County. This John according to his age when he re married was born about 1765 prob. in Ross and Crom. I also know there was another John McRae that married a Catherine Morkson...I am not sure which of the two may be Christopher's parents.... Does anyone know of the early clan that setteled in this general area of Quebec in the early 1800's? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Iberville Quebec is not far from Huntingdon where my ancestors homesteaded in 1819. You may want to go to the above web site or Google Huntingdon for a great site on early Quebec Scots
