Surnames: Hollingsworth, McRae, McPhee, Walker
My Ggrandparents were born and died in Nova Scotia but I can hardly find any links to them. My Ggrandma, Katie, (Catherine) was born August 13, 1889 to John McRae and Mary McPhee-says on her dc but on her mc it says her fathers name was Alex (black river). My Ggrandfather, Delbert was born 1869 to Alexander Hollingsworth.
My Grandma, Annie Margaret Walker was maiden name Hollingsworth and was one of their children. She married my grandfather, Gordon Walker. Both were born in Nova Scotia. My mother, Margaret Ellen Walker was one of Margaret (annie) and Gordon Walker's 10 children.
Anyone know anything about either of these people, I'd love to grow my family tree. Thank you

Cathrine Elizabeth Ann (Katie) was my grandfather, Daniel MacRae's sister. Their parents were Alexander "Sandy" and Marie (MacPhee)MacRae. The married in 1876 and settled on family property at Balmoral (Grand Anse), Cape Breton. Alexander's parents were Christy MacRae born 1831, Balmoral and Alexander "Findlay" MacRae 1824-1900 from Middle River, Cape Breton. Christy's parents were Alexander "Cromery" MacRae 1793-1868 from the Parish of Kincardine in the old sheriffdom of Cromarty, Scotland and Isabell Gibson 1788-1876 from the Paris of Nigg, Scotland. They married at Nigg in 1814 but I am not sure when the immigrated to Canada.

Hope this helps.
