Curious if anyone knows the Rev. Archibald MacKinnon in the passage below. A Rev. A. D.
McKinnon married my g-grandparents in Boston in 1901 (G-Grandparents are John A. MacKinnon
(Cape Breton) and Minnie MacNeill (PEI)). Could be the same person? Might be related?
Rev. Archibald MacKinnon was inducted into the pastoral charge of St.
Matthews' Church, Inverness, N.S., on Tuesday evening, June 24th. There was
a large congregation present, and a glad spirit characterised the whole
service. Our church at Inverness is one of the best equipped in the
province. The church and manse buildings would do credit to any of our
largest cities. The Sunday School, under the able management of Mr.
Henderson, and an aggressive staff of officers and teachers, is doing
excellent work. The people throughout are faithful in their attendance upon
all the services. Mr. MacKinnon is one of the Lake Ainslie boys, and in
coming back from Boston, where he successfully labored for upwards of two
years, has reversed the usual order in receiving and accepting a call from
his own native county, and his own kith and kin. He begins work in
Inverness under very favorable conditions, and good things will be looked
for * Presbyterian Witness.
