: I am searching for information on the mother of my maternal grandmother. She was born on The Isle of Skye in 1858. Her name was Flora Jane MacDonald. She married James Mountain, they live on PEI. My grandmother's name was Phoebe. I realize the surnames you have listed are not the same. However I find it interesting that you mention a Flora Jane and a Phoebe. Is it possible they are somehow related to your family?
It is possible that there is a relationship as they were from Snizort, but I think those names were quite popular in that part of the world. My Nicholsons emigrated to PEI sometime in the late 1830's to early 40's. Donald Nicholson's wife's maiden name may have been MacDonald but I have not been able to verify that. I have pinned down their emigration dates from Ann and Flora Jane's marriages from the marriage registrations at the PEI Archives. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
