To John Lemley - from Marcia McIntyre of Australia
Dear John, I contacted you previously about incorrect information on the MacIntyres of Camusnaherie. You replied and thanked me for contacting you and you said that you would correct mistakes, but this has not happened! I have just Googled "Camusaherie" and the family tree of Reverend Duncan MacIntyre of Camusnaherie (born 22 June, 1757) has popped up on wikitree.com - This family tree has you as the source. I have done a lot of research into the Camusnaherie MacIntyres, so what I have is the correct information. Reverend Duncan married Jean, who was the daughter of James MacIntyre of Glenoe, 3rd recorded Chief of Clan MacIntyre. You have Reverend Duncan MacIntyre marrying "Jean Unknown". If you go to the electricscotland website and then click on "Clan MacIntyre" you will see Martin McIntyre's story on the Glenoe and Camusnaherie McIntyres. Martin's story is excellent and completely accurate.
You have Duncan and Jean's son Duncan born 1781 in Scotland and going to the United States and marrying Jane Elizabeth Prestwood. This is wrong! Duncan, the son of Reverend Duncan and Jean MacIntyre, was born in Scotland, probably at Kilmallie on 10 February, 1815. He immigrated to Sydney, Australia on board the ship "Hooghley", arriving on 11 October, 1836. He married Marjorie Cameron, a fellow-passenger a few days after arriving in Sydney. Marjorie's parents and siblings were also passengers on the "Hooghley". The Cameron family and Duncan and Marjorie journeyed to the present day Canberra area (the capitol city of Australia, but in 1836 it was very remote bush country, near the old country town of Queanbeyan). They were sponsored by Charles Campbell (the local landed gentry) of the Duntroon Estate. Duncan McIntyre worked as a shepherd for the Campbell family. Nine years after arriving in Australia, Duncan was accidentally shot dead. He was survived by his widow Marjorie and four sons. One son, Alexander McIntryre, born 1841, was my husband's great-grandfather. You have various children of Reverend Duncan MacIntyre and Jean MacIntyre immigrating to the United States. As far as I know, none of the children ended up in America. Our "Hooghley" Duncan came to Australia, also three of his siblings. Just having a quick look at your family tree, you have wrong information for all of our Duncan's siblings. I am not sure what I sent you before, but I am very disappointed that you have not corrected the wrong information. It is very annoying, especially seeing your wrong info seems to have been copied to other websites. from Marcia McIntyre
