On coming to Judique in 1818 he took up his abode at Indian Point where lived his cousin, Thomas "Ban" MacDonell. Rev. MacDonell remainded in Judique for 25 years and died at his home at Indian Point. By 1823 there were two Catholic Priests in Inverness County; Rev. MacDonell and Rev. Blanchette in Cheticamp.

MacDonell suggested the County be called Inverness. This suggestion was submitted to the House of Assembly by William Young who represented the County from 1836 to 1859.

These lands had previously been sequestered by James IV for certain debts owing to the Crown by Wiland XII. In return Wiland resigned any rights of property he may have had in the Earldome of Ross to the King who held that Earldome at that time. All these lands lay in Strathglass. In the same year, James V granted to Hugh Lord Fraser the lands and barony of Erchless.

09 Apr 2001 - MacKenzie stated on page 139 that Colin fought both at Sheriff Muir and at Culloden. In after life he showed great attachment to the arms which he carried and from all accounts, very effectively used on both these occasions. After the Disarming Act was passed following the Battle of Culloden, all Highlanders were compelled to give up their arms. Colin succeeded in evading this Law and by a ruse kept his highly treasured weapons. Before his death he enjoined upon his family to take the greatest care of the Claymores, in particular. MacKenzie stated that the Sword used at Sheriff Muir was in the possession of one of his descendants in Nova Scotia and the other used at Culloden, a heavy weapon of Solingen manufacture, was carefully preserved by his great-grandson, Colin Chisholm(7), Namur Cottage, Inverness.

Ray MacLean on page 58 (Vol 2) stated that Will Dan MacIntosh still had his great-grandfather's curved Sword, and his Scottish Dirk, the latter a formidable weapon with about fifteen inches of steel and an intricately carved wooden handle. He also had his great-grandfather's shaving box, a large decorated container with a hinged mirror inside the cover.

On 06 October, 1999, Duncan J. Chisholm accompanied by Rod Chisholm from Antigonish visited Colin MacIntosh in Lower South River outside of Antigonish and saw the Sword, Dirk and Shaving Box, which contained three straight razors. Colin stated that all these items were passed down from John "Og" MacIntosh, a son of the Alexander MacIntosh, found elsewhere on this File. Alexander MacIntosh was married to Catherine Chisholm, a sister of Colin Chisholm(4).

During September, 1999, Dr. Roger Chisholm-Batten in London sent DJC a copy of a Newspaper Article re the Wedding of Alexander "Klondike King" MacDonald and Margaret Chisholm at the turn of the Century in London. The Claymore used to cut the cake at their Wedding Reception was the one used by Colin Chisholm(4) at Culloden.

On a separate File named MabouPioneers there was one Chisholm from Long Point who willed his best milk cow to Father Archie. Ray MacLean stated in a memo to DJC that Father Archie was known as "An Sagart Mor", the big Priest.

29 Sep 2002 - He served as Parish priest at Margaree, Pictou and Broad Cove prior to serving as first Pastor at Heatherton from 1875 to 1892. It was this Father Chisholm who suggested the name of Saint Columbia to replace the name of Pomquet River. A local Merchant named Christopher MacDonald believed that his ship "Heather" deserved recognition for carrying the name of the village to the far corners of the Maritimes and held out for Heatherton. Locally the argument had weight as the public was accustomed to the sight of the flag "Heather" flying above the MacDonald Store when the Schooner was taking on cattle at Bayfield. Big Christopher's suggestion was adopted.

Ray MacLean advised DJC that when Father John retired for health reasons, he went to Montreal and Boston around 1903 and then went to live with his bother, Father Archy in Judique around 1905.

His headstone stated that he was ordained a Priest on December 17, 1865.

An Alexander MacKenzie from Edinburgh in Scotland, Editor of the Celtic Magazine, was on a tour of Canada and visited with Father John and noted that Father John was 6 ft, 4 ins, in height.

29 Apr 2004 - The February 10, 1898 Casket carried a story on his health situation. He had left home a few days previously with the intention of spending some time in Southern California, for the benefit of his health. He changed his plans while in Boston and joined a party setting out for a tour of Egypt, the Holy Land, and Southern Europe including Rome.

196 12 Mar 2001 - Reference page 31 in the Medlam PDF Files. Mary must be descended from the Alexander MacIntosh shown on this page but her exact relationship can not be established at this time.

Alexander MacDonell, the first Parish Priest in Judique, Inverness County.

01 May 2004 - In the Obituary Notice for his grandson, Austin Chisholm, it was mentioned that he was a near relative of Bishop Alexander MacDonell of Kingston. Presumably Hugh and the Bishop were closely related, if not brothers. 
MacDonell, Hugh "Usidean" (I4258)
 
198 12 Mar 2001 - Reference page 50 in the Medlam PDF Files. Isabel and her whole family emigrated to Cape Breton Island. Duncan J. Chisholm could not locate this family in any of his data bases nor in Angus MacPhee's data base.

She died at the residence of her son-in-law, Donald Chisholm, Rear Long Point, C. B., in the 98th year of her age. Isabella was the relict of the late Duncan MacDonald(sic) of Judique, a native of Strathglass, Inverness-Shire, Scotland, and fifth daughter of Theodore Chisholm of Comer, Strathglass.
