Note : There was a William McCutcheon, who joined the Donner Party in Missourie in 1848, on their wagon train journey to California. The Donner Party unwisely chose to break away from the main wagon train westward on the Oregon trail, taking a more southerly route. After passing out of the Salt Lake flats of Utah, the Donner party was a month behind schedule and near out of food. William McCutcheon volunteered to go on ahead seeking help. He was never seen again and died alone somewhere in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Snow came early, constant and deep in the mountains that fall, and about 50 of the party died before reaching the summit at Sutter Creek, California. It is not known if this McCutcheon was related to the above Megantic Co McCutcheons. However, some of the McCutcheons of Megantic Co went west to Iowa in the 1860s. This 1860s trip was preceded by parties of Quebec men who rode west on horseback in the 1840s, including Hendersons (married into McCutcheons), Ralstons, several others from Inverness Tsp, Leeds Tsp, and many from Frampton.

McKinnon Notes :

  1. There were other McKinnons from Sliddery, Arran who went to the Bay of Chaleur area of New Brunswick in 1852, settling at Dundee, NB
  2. The clan McKinnon is normally associated with the Isles of Skye and Mull. But an enclave of MacKinnons was established at Sliddery on Arran from early in the 1000 millennium. Some of the MacKinnnon lands in Skye were allotted to the clan by Robert the Bruce, following the Battle of Bannockburn, as a reward for aid given to him by the MacKinnons of Arran. They provided a haven for him during his stay on Arran, as he returned from Ireland to wrest Scotland from the English. The Arran MacKinnons supported him in battle. According to local tradition, in feudal times, the MacKinnons held the hereditary right to Sliddery directly from the King, and were a class of men known as 'barons'. But well before the beginning of the 18th century, ownership of Sliddery, along with that of most of Arran, had been acquired by the Duke of Hamilton.

John McLaughlin was born in co. Cavan, Ireland c. 1792 and married Margaret Collins

They had Robert, Charles and George before immigrating to Canada in either 1828 or 1830. They first settled in Quebec and remained there until sometime prior to 1851 as I find them in Durham Co., Ontario in that 1851 census.

I have two sources that tell of their daughter, Sarah Jane McLaughlin being born in Megantic, Que in 1837. I found a Thomas that was born in Quebec and it seems that this Thomas remained in the area. Another born in Quebec was Thomas

Charles is said to have been born in Ireland and first settled with his family in Quebec.

There are a number of items pointing to Megantic or Quebec and it seems to fall between 1828 and 1851.
