on the field of Worcester. He left a son, Daniel Mor Mac-
kinnon, Chief of the clan, who left, with other issue, Danieu
Mackinnon (youngest son), who quitted his home on account
of a quarrel with his father in the hunting-field, and emigrated
to Antigua, where he purchased some plots of land, and took
a very conspscuous part in politics, particularly in the affair of
Governor Parke. He m. the sister of Col. Thomas, and <i.
