Re: OGILVIE - Grenada

I am so sorry I never saw this post when it appeared. But I think I may have a connection. My Peter Ogilvie and his wife Margaret Reid had 7 children, and indeed one of them was William who died in infancy. In Order - James (1840-1910), William Reid (5/02/1842 - 01/05/1842), Kenneth Chisholm(b 1844)...

Re: OGILVIE - Grenada

Peter William Ogilvie and William Reid Ogilvie are my family as well. The Reid name is presumably for Margaret (Reid) Ogilvie whose birth (Reid) family were silk weavers in Dundee.

Re: OGILVIE - Grenada

I am excited, finally perhaps, there may be a proven connection. I have some letters written by my great grandmother about the Scotland part, the contents of which haven't fully made sense to me as yet. I have a book passed down to me entitled "Seafield correspondence 1685-1708, second series #3." w...

The brother of one of my forebears emigrated from Dundee area of Scotland (Blaise Hall, Parish of Liff) to Grenada, where I have been told he fathered many children. Not sure which of the brothers was the one who emigrated - another came to Canada and founded the Ogilvie flour mills in Winnipeg. Any...
