Gilbert McWhirter & John McWhirter
of Ballantrae, Scotland and Quebec, Canada
(1794-1874)   &   (1801-1883)

Special mention must be made here of two McWh*rter researchers whose tireless efforts are responsible for most of the information compiled on this branch of the McWh*rter clan, Peggy Doddridge-Willett of New Richmond, Quebec, Canada and Harry Yoder of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Peggy sent me a GEDCOM in 1998 listing over 5,000 individuals that I am still working my way through. Harry Yoder for several years served as Editor & Publisher of the Hugh McWhirter Family History Research Newsletter. The members of this Ballantrae branch of the McWhirters will always be in their debt.

A Gilbert McWhirter [db#491] was born in Shellknow, Ballantrae, Scotland circa 1730. There he married 13-Apr-1750 to Isobel McCreadie [db#492]. Gilbert & Isobel had seven known children one of whom was William McWhirter [db#493] (b. 15-Apr-1762, Ballantrae, Scotland; d. 8-Jan-1848, Ballantrae, Scotland; bur. Parish graveyard Ballantrae - see photo of gravestone on page3]).

William, a fisherman, married in Ballantrae 21-Sep-1792 to Ann Caldwell [db#498] (b. 19-Aug-1769; d. 1-Jan-1834). Two of William & Ann’s children, found their way to New Richmond, Quebec, Canada where they became the foundation of perhaps the largest branch of McWh*rters in North America.

The younger brother, John [db#8874], left 2 children and 19 grandchildren. The older brother, Gilbert [db#499], left 10 children and 74 grandchildren to carry forward the Ballantrae line.
