Angus Campbell in (possibly) Coarnach. I do not have an adequate map of the
Kingussie area - what you give is presumably the parish name - but it is
possible that Coarnach is towards Loch Laggan and the district of Lochaber.
If the family was Catholic is it possible that Angus was one of the
MacGlaiserach Campbells (who sometimes only used MacGlaisserach). They had
come to Lochaber in the 14th or 15th century from Glassary in Argyll due to
the head of their family catching the 'crowner' (a local official)
mistreating his wife and so killing him. He moved his family to Lochaber
and they eventually became the bodyguards of MacDonald of Keppoch. There
are descendants of these MacGlaiserach Campbells in Mabou, Nova Scotia
(Campbell, Kilmelford, Argyll, Scotland)

Catherine and Duncan emigrated from Loch Tay area to Caledonia, NY in
1798. They are buried in either the old Presbyterian cemetary in Caledonia
or the Mumford Rural Cemetary. Duncan was a founding elder of the
Presbyterian Church and died in 1806 or 7. Catherine's death date is
unknown but is after Duncan.
Hope someone has a connection!
