Deuchar (19th century genealogist with Doig relatives) lists a son John born in 1695 and a child W born in 1697, although neither of these is recorded in the parish records. Deuchar also lists Dr. Francis Dog of Murdieston as married to Euphemia Gedd in 1697.

 

Sasine dated 18 Sept 1697, of Mr. Walter Dog, son to John Dog, Portioner of Murdeston, of the said John Dog, 3 of lands of Murdeston. And the same date a sasine to Euphemia Gedd, spouse to the said Walter Dog of an annual rent of 60 from Murdeston.  [Minute Book of Particular Register of Sasines for Stirlingshire, Book 72, Folios 373 and 374.]

Deuchar shows John was married a second time with spouse not named and no children indicated. It is

presumed by location and timing this marriage was to Elizabeth Moir.

Walter married Janet Robertson  on 23 Aug 1717 in Kilmadock, Perth, Scotland. Janet was born about 1696 in Of Kincardine, Perth, Scotland.

 

Janet may be christened 5 Mar 1696 in Kilmadock, the daughter of Archibald Robertson and Agnes Mitchell; or may be christened 10 Dec 1698 in Kilmadock, the daughter of Walter Robertson and Janet Archibald. 

 

Walter and Janet had the following children:

The link to Andrew's parents is based on age, location, and Scottish naming custom and confirmed by

Deuchar. Duechar has a note that Andrew was from Fife.  [In 2006 a DNA match was made between two

descendants of brother Paul to a descendant of Andrew confirming a common father.]

 

On 12 July 1749, Andrew Dog in Burnside witnessed the christening of Isabell, daughter of Archibald

departed Greenock and arrived in New York on the ship "Camillas" on 9 May 1827, and on to Jamaica by

on the tower of the church, which was reconstructed after the rebellion.

 

In the "History of the Baptist Ministry Society" for the Jamaica Mission at Falmouth in 1832:

On Tuesday, the 3d of January, being deeply impressed with the incompatibility of military service with

the ministry of the gospel, they drew up a memorial to his excellency the governor, praying for exemption;

and gave it to the colonel, for his inspection, previously to sending it to Spanish Town. While anxiously

waiting for his opinion, which was promised that forenoon, Captain Paul Doig, with his drawn sword,

attended by two armed blacks, went up to Mr. Knibb, who was on duty at the guard-house, and said, "

Take this man into custody this is all he has got by preaching." Captain Chrystie somewhat more politely

required Mr. Abbott to deliver up his sword, and stated that "the colonel had ordered him to put him under

arrest!"

 

Paul bought a 600 acre farm in Hay Township in the London District of Canada, recorded 14 Nov 1836;

the property was disposed of on 12 Apr 1860.  He found the climate too cold, so he returned to Jamaica

KIPPEN WAS A CROSSROAD corner, located where Hay, Stanley and Tuckersmith Townships

converge and where the London Road (Hwy 4) and the Kippen Road (County Rd 12) intersect. It was

referred to as "The Corner" and might have remained so had Robert Bell not succeeded in having a Post

Office located here in 1855. He named it after his home in Kippen, Scotland. The first settlers into the

Kippen area, between 1836-40, were Robert Bell, William Cooper, Robert Doig, James and John

McLean, and their families. They were followed by James Anderson and William Blair a few years later.

_The Canada Company built a flour and grist mill on Lot 13 Concession 1 LRS in 1837 and a road to it in

 

1838. Robert Bell ran the Kippen Mills, hiring Thomas Oke and Findlay Fraser as millers. Bell owned the

mills by 1850. A sawmill was added some time in the 1840s.

Canada:

 

'Largies'

Tuckersmith Township

Huron Tract

Huron County

Sept 25, 1844

To: William Wilson

Kirkcudbright

Scotland

I received your letter some time ago and I was truly happy to hear you were all enjoying good health. I

see you are quite resolved, if all is well, to come out to Canada in the spring. I approve very much of your

doing so, as your family is now coming forward to help you in the way of working.

In my humble opinion, there is a good way of living in this country for working people. But not for those

that will not work, or for those who would like to act the gentlemen, unless they have lots of sovereigns in

their pocket.

For my own part, I would not advise any person to come here for fear they would dislike the place, for I

have seen some people very dissatisfied after coming here although they can get almost everything they

want very reasonable.

Still they seemed more discontented than Robert1 and I were when we came into the bush and not a roof

to cover our heads; and could not get a meal of meat under a quarter of a dollar; and the growing timber

around us like a wilderness.

However, after getting a small house put up and a few acres of land cleared the first year, the

appearance of the crops encouraged us very much. So we had good hopes of getting a living and

likewise better prospects for our family.

And thank God my hopes have not been disappointed as yet. And I trust you will find it the same after

you come here a little time. We are at all times happy to see respectable looking settlers coming into this

place; and more particularly Scotch people as we are very clannish in our own way.

The land about here is mostly sold but still there is some at no great distance from this place to dispose

of. The price of bush land is from 12 shillings six pence to 15 shillings per acre, and the price of cleared

land about $20 per acre. Both kinds of land are nearly one half higher in price than when we came into

this country 12 years past last summer, i.e. 1832.

I must next, according to your desire, give you some directions on your way to this boasted land of liberty.

This I will be glad to do to the best of my knowledge. I think the passage money across the Atlantic is

lower than when we came.

And I am also inclined to think the best way is by New York and from there to Albany by steamboat; from

Hamilton here which is 90 miles by wagon. But if there are many of you to be together, you should go on

to Buffalo on the Erie Canal and from there to Detroit by steamboat. From Detroit go to Port Sarnia by

steamboat or schooner whichever way is cheapest and quickest. From Port Sarnia, Goderich is about 60

miles across Lake Huron.

On the lakes, they charge upon luggage by the barrel bulk, as much on a barrel of feathers as on a barrel

of flour.

I would not advise you to bring any wheels or reels with you; better sell them as well as you can at home,

for I think you can buy them as cheap here when you want them; some pots and a frying pan will be

useful on the passage. Bring your griddle, your crocks, and a small washing pail or two; bring a good

quantity of cotton cloth as it is a very high price here.

Bring all your bedclothes and whatever more clothes you have. You need not bring new shoes, as they

are much the same price here as at home.

 

Change no more of your sovereigns than will bring you out of the States into Canada as the sovereign2

is worth as much here as at New York and you do not run the risk of getting their bad Yankee money.

I shall next give you a brief account of our markets here, which are very low. Wheat, three to four shillings

per bushel; barley, two shillings four pence per bushel; potatoes, one shilling per bushel, beef three to

four pence per pound, pork two to three pence per pound, cheese two to four pence per pound; brandy

five to six shillings per gallon, eggs five to six pence per dozen, tea one shilling six pence to two shillings

per pound, coffee eight to nine pence per pound.3

Men's wages in general are '2/six shillings per month in summer and in winter '1/seven shillings per

month. Women's wages in general are 14 to 18 shillings per month. A yoke of good working oxen, 55 to

$60. Good milk cows $15 and $20. Remember me to all our relations without exception and also all

friendly enquirers. And believe me ever your sincere and well-wisher. J.C.4

Obituary: The History of Delaware County, W.W. MUNSELL 1797-1880

Died, at Andes, Delaware county, N. Y., November 1st, 1849, after a short illness, Mr. John Dunn, a

 

native of Scotland, aged fifty years. Mr. Dunn, like Jacob, left his native land when a young man, along

with some of his relatives, with little else than his staff, to sojourn in a land of strangers; but he set the

Lord before him, and trusted in his word that he would never leave him nor forsake him: this ho found

verified in his happy experience, and of which he often spoke with gratitude to them who had led him in

ways he knew not, and bestowed upon him mercies of which he was unworthy. He was not like many of

his countrymen, who leave the land of their fathers and settle down in places, like Lot, induced by the

fertile soil and well-watered plains, indifferent whether or not they should hear the glad tidings of

salvation preached, the Sabbath observed by them and their children in the manner to which they had

been accustomed, or whether they should be married to those whose part and portion are in this present

life, or to those whose inheritance is in heaven. He came, or we should rather say was brought by God,

to whom he committed his way, to a rough mountainous part of the country, where a few of the excellent

ones of the earth were found, where the Lord's name was feared, his day observed, and the ordinances

of his grace enjoyed in purity. He soon became acquainted with those whose principles and practices

were congenial to his own mind, and found that they were serviceable in assisting him both in the things

belonging to this life and the life that is to come. He, from a sense of duty, made a public profession of his

faith in God as his God and father in Christ, by connecting himself with the Associate Presbyterian

Congregation of Bovina, of which he was afterwards chosen an elder, and which office he honourably

held until the voice was heard, ''Arise, and depart, for this is not your rest."

 

Mr. Dunn had another evidence of the Lord's kindness to him, in finding a helpmeet for him in the person

of Miss Elizabeth Doig, daughter of Mr. Walter Doig, a man of intelligence, piety and perseverance, one

of the first settlers, who endured many hardships, and one of the first elders who was the means of

bringing the gospel to that place, the happy consequences of whose labours in the defence of the cause

of truth are felt in the Congregation to this day. Mr. Dunn was well acquainted with the history of the

Church, especially with the rise and progress of the Secession in Scotland, Ireland, and in this country,

for which he was much indebted, under God, to those eminent faithful few with whom he first became

connected in the fellowship of the Church. He proved himself to be a true friend of Zion, in loving her truth

and her peace, and doing what lay within his power to promote her prosperity. He took a deep interest in

the efforts which have been made to unite the Associate and the Associate Reformed Churches under

one public profession in defence of the faith once delivered to the saints; but from the late changes and

disclosures which have taken place, both in the West and North, he began to despair of seeing a union in

heart and profession in bis day of which he could approve. However anxious he was for union with our

Associate Reformed brethren, he could not consent to alter either the sentiments or words of the

venerable Westminster Confession of Faith in order to accomplish it. Explanations he was for, but

alterations he was against. Mutual forbearance on certain points and practices he believed was

necessary, in order to their coming together as well as to their remaining together any length of time; but

forbearance with the practice of using hymns of human composition in the praise of God, to suit people's

fancy at funerals, or when ministers went to preach in other pulpits than their own, to make use of them

as cheerfully as they would the inspired songs of Zion, he could never forbear with, as it was a plain

evidence that those who were guilty of it believed they had as much authority for the one as the other.

Neither could he see it to be his duty to forbear with the practice of the Associate Reformed Church in

admitting to their communion occasionally those in good standing in other denominations with whom they

do not hold continual communion, as he looked upon such practice as being not only inconsistent in itself,

but also as tending to destroy the peace, unity, and prosperity of the Church, lamentable instances of

which had fallen under his own consideration. Mr. Dunn was not blindly attached to a certain Bystem of

doctrines or discipline; no, he knew what he was about, and was able to give to every one that asked a

reason for the hope that was in him, and why he differed from those around him. He knew his profession,

and therefore he loved it; he loved it, therefore he clung to it amid sneers and reproaches, being more

desirous to obtain the approbation of God and a good conscience, than the praise of men. He was one

who could say, in truth— "The habitation of thy house, Lord, I have loved well; Yea, in that place I do

delight Where doth thine honour dwell." Regular was he in his attendance upon public ordinances,

though he had far to come, and a rough, cold road to travel, seldom or ever were he and his family

 

absent, when those who lived nearer the house of God were not to be seen. He was a prayerful, attentive,

and conscientious hearer of the word. Only two Sabbaths before his death, we saw him in his

accustomed place: but little were we then aware that it was to be the last time on which we were to

worship God in the Church below. What a call to be ready to meet the bridegroom ! Mr. Dunn was one

who served the Lord with his substance, and never was chargeable in withholding more than was meet,

either for the support of the gospel at home or in sending it abroad; for which the Lord blessed him by

prospering him in his worldly circumstances and connexions. Being a man of industry, economy and

perseverance, he acquired considerable wealth, and has left a widow, also three sons and two daughters,

in comfortable circumstances. He had the pleasure before ho departed of seeing his family offering fair

for following in his footsteps, three of whom having become members of the church. In making him and

his family to differ from others, he ascribed it entirely to Divine grace, and never took any praise to

himself. During the time of his sickness, a complaint or a murmur never passed his lips. When he was

able to speak, it was always in the language of cheerful submission to the will of his Heavenly Father,

and in giving suitable exhortations to those around him, from whom, he said, he was soon to be removed.

Shortly before his departure he was unable to speak, his strength gradually decreased until he fell asleep

in the arms of Jesus without a groan or a struggle. " His latter end was peoce." The family and the

Church have sustained a great loss in his departure, who went in and out among them as a peace-maker,

living soberly, righteously and godly; but our loss, we have every reason to believe, is his gain. When the

useful, exemplary, and faithful are removed from the Church below to enter into their rest, it is a call to

those who remain to be ready also to give an account of their stewardship. Let us aim at being followers

of those who, through faith and patience, are now inheriting the promises. And let us trust in Israel's

Shepherd to raise up and qualify others for occupying the place of those whom he has been pleased to

take to himself to behold his glory. "Help, Lord, for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among

the children of men." Dcla.wi.kc.

Beaver Kill, besides various smaller structures. From 1859 to 1868 he engaged in

general carpentry, taking building contracts. Next he bought ninety-seven acres near

Bovina Centre, and devoted himself chiefly to agriculture till 1872, when he was

engaged as superintendent of the Livingston farm.

 

James was a prominent resident of Bovina, having competent charge of the Robert J.

Livingston estate on Lake Delaware. This property has been in the possession of the

Livingston family since 1707, nearly two centuries, the patent coming from Queen

Anne. The original grant was for land a mile wide on the Hudson River, and extending

back to the West Branch of the Delaware River. From time to time various sections of it

have been sold; but even now the estate includes nearly eight hundred acres, and is

"Doig, Margaret"

 

the largest owned by any private person in the county. Mr. Coulter has from three to

ten men working under him, and keeps a hundred and fifty acres under cultivation. The

place is chiefly used as a summer resort by the Livingston family, and on it are twenty

buildings, including the main dwelling-house, tenement houses, boat-houses, gate-

house, and laundry. There are kept twenty-five or thirty full-blooded Jerseys, averaging

two hundred and seventy-five pounds of butter each for market every year. On the farm

is a lovely sheet of water, named Lake Delaware, two hundred and nineteen rods

seventeen links long by sixty-four rods wide in the broadest part, and covering about

sixty acres, well stocked with California salmon, trout, and other fish. At the outlet of

this lake for eighty-one years stood a grist-mill. The first mill, built by Stephen Palmer

for Governor Morgan Lewis in 1796, was burned, and a new one was built in 1823. Mr.

Coulter superintended taking down the latter mill in 1881. Mr. Robert J. Livingston died

in New York City on February 22, 1891; and the property now belongs to his daughter.

He was born December 11, 1811, his mother being the only daughter of General

Morgan Lewis, of Revolutionary fame. Mr. Livingston's daughter, Louise Morgan

Livingston, is now the wife of Commodore Elbridge T. Gerry, a lawyer residing in New
