    Notes 
    • Paul Robinson writes: In late 1891 my GGGrandfather, Allan MacDiarmid (born 1817 Loch Etive, Argyll) travelled from Sydney with his family to Armidale NSW to visit his 'kinsman' John Cameron at "Morven". While in Armidale Allan died on 7/11/1891. Allan's mother was Janet Cameron and she married Duncan MacDiarmid in Stronlain, Arnamurchan,, Scotland in 1809. I have now established for certain that the John Cameron, Allan MacDiarmid visited was the John Cameron (born 1836 Garmony Mull, died 1915 'Morven' Armidale) in your family tree. His grandfather was William Cameron born about 1788 Forosay-Glen Argyll.
      I estimate that Janet Cameron (Allan's mother) would have been born about 1780, but I don't know where. It is possible that Janet and William Cameron were sister and brother and thus Allan MacDiarmid and John Cameron were first cousins (once removed). I would be grateful for any information you may have or any research that you could suggest that would establish if Janet and William Cameron were related.
