Hugh McDiarmid 1700-1860 Perthshire>New York>Ontario
I am researching Hugh McDiarmid who I believe was born c.1772 in Perthshire (probably Broadalbin). Hugh emigrated with fellow countymen to New York State in 1798 and settled in the region of present day Rochester. He married Ann Grant and they had 7 children before moving to East Nissouri, Oxford, Canada West (now Ontario, Canada). Hugh died in Ingersol, Oxford, Ontario in 1856.
I am hoping to confirm his date and place of birth as well as the names of his parents and siblings. Do you have any suggestions? Resources?
