Notes for Donald "Dan" Fraser
Born at Cultie, a former small hamlet on the lands of Fraser of Gortlech, a Stratherrick cadet. Cultie is from the Gaelic, "cul taigh", meaning behind the house, and a possible reference to its location behind Gorthlech House - the oldest house in Boleskine Parish where on the evening following the Battle of Culloden Prince Charles and his staff dined and had a conversation with "Mhic Shimidh" (Lord Lovat) and one of his most dedicated cadets, Thomas Fraser of Gorthlech. Gorthlech House still stands, occupied as a farm-house, filled with the memories of that event of so long ago. Cultie is no more than a mile from the Kirk of "Druim Teampuill" where Angus was baptized. All that remains of Cultie is a small farmhouse (Bol. Par. Rec. Edinb.) Donald died at Springhill, N.S. November 10, 1876, the result of a fall. (Mrs. Evelyn Pepperdine, g g granddaughter of Donald and Isabella MacKenzie).24

He settled at McClellan's Mountain, among the 40 families in 1817.
