Duncan MacGregor (1792-1852). The woman is almost certainly his wife Esther Henderson. She was not the mother of Duncan’s first son Neil MacGregor (1816 – 1874), and I have not located Neil’s mother’s name. The date is thought to be 1851-1852 because the print is on paper, and the collodion process was invented in 1851. Duncan died in 1852.

Genealogy is the study of one’s family history, ancestors and relatives. My genealogy pages are for the Colin MacGregor Stevens’ families and will focus on the following:


  1. STEVEN / STEVENS / STEPHEN  from Brechin, Scotand

  2. MacGREGOR / McGREGOR from Kinloch Rannoch, Perthshire, Scotland and St. Catharines, ON, Canada. Seeking ancestors of Neil MacGREGOR who was born in Kinloch Rannoch in 1816. His father was Duncan (c.1792-1852). Duncan’s mother was Katherine. 

  3. HEAKES from England to Toronto, ON, Canada

  4. FRY – Pennsylvania Dutch (i.e. German) from Switzerland or Southern Germany to Bucks County, PA, USA to Ontario, Canada in 1800.

  5. DRAPER – Boston, Mass., USA to North Gwillumbury (near Barrie), Ontario, Canada. Alleged United Empire Loyalist ancestry of Pamela DRAPER, daughter of Joel DRAPER is being sought. Apparently through Benjamin CRITTENDEN.
