    My Grandfathers Family For Generations All Came From The Killin Area And I Would Be Interested To Know If I Still Have Relatives Living In The Killin Area.

    My Grandfather Moved Out Of The Killin Area And Moved To Doune In The Late 1800’s For Employment. His Name Was John Campbell And He Became A Shoemaker.

    My Great Grandfather Was Also John Campbell And I Believe He Stayed In Gray Street And The Old Thatched Cottages At Moneymore. He Was A Stone Mason I Believe.

    My Great Great Grandfather Was Also John Campbell And He Was A Forrester.

    I Have Some Dates Which I Will Have To Look Out Some Other Time.

    If Anyone Can Help Please Contact Me.

    Thanks.

    The old cemetry behind the Killin Hotel has a number of Campbell and Macdiarmid graves, although most gravestones are so worn they can’t be read. I think I have attached one that relates to the Campbells that lived in Grey Street. Finlay Campbell died 1913 so maybe too recent. Any use?

    Hi Vic, Thanks for the information about the grave in the old graveyard to the rear of the Hotel. I don’t think Finlay was a family name, however I do know that my Great Grandfather is buried there, but where exactly I have no idea. He was married on a Janet McDiarmid from Kenmore.

    Thanks again, if you find out any more please get in touch.

    John.

    Hi John My poeple came to New Zealand from Killin in 1857. Malcolm b 1832 and his wife Margaret. Malcolms father was John and he was a shoe maker born abt 1792 he married Ann McNaughton.
    Does any of this fit with your family, it was the shoemaker bit that caught my eye.
