    If you look at the list of passengers for the Conrad in 1851, you will see that there were a few heads of households listed with the surname “MacMillan”. The name Mullen does not appear. Perhaps the surname of your ancestor was MacMillan. If so, then it would be possible for you to search the Tiree genealogy website for information on MacMillan families on Tiree prior to 1851.

      My Great, Great Grandparents (distant ancestors) were Colin McMillan and his wife Catherine McLean who immigrated to Artemesia Township on the SS Conrad with there family Alexander, John, Malcolm, Agnes Ann, Christena and Donald. They also had a son Lachlan, I am not sure what happened to him.

    My 3rd gr grandfather, John Campbell Sinclair was born in Heanish (or Hynish) Tiree in 1794 0r 1799. His father was Peter Sinclair, born Tiree in 1758. John married Mary Julia MacLean at Scallisdale House on Mull in 1822. She was of the MacLeans of Brolas / Clingerloch, but was orphaned and raised buy her uncles on Mull. John was educated in Edinburgh and a seminary in Glasgow. He, with his family, emigrated to Nova Scotia and finally was living in North Carolina. He was a well know Presbyterian preacher.
    What I don’t know is: how was his education financed, was the Sinclair family of Tiree more than mere crofters, how did he come to know the MacLeans and marry into their family??
