A horse-drawn wagon transporting lobster creels at Pictou Island in the mid-20th century. Lachie Dan MacCallum (1881-1967), great-grandson of the first miller at Cornaig, would have used a similar wagon to haul his gear until he stopped fishing around 1964.

    Hi there, I was just wondering if you have contact details for any of the surviving MacCallum’s at An Iodhlann? Whoever donated your photos of the great grandsons on Pictou Island for example.

    It would be nice if I could get a hold of any of them as their ancestor, John MacCallum (the first Miller at Cornaigmore), is mentioned in the Kirk Session Minutes in 1782.
