It was to Manitoba that Malcolm Gillespie of Cannington visited his Islay relatives in 1881. This chart for Dominion Land Grants helps one visualize the location of the family farms of the people he visited. If all three of these charts for the Western Provinces are put side by side, one can more readily identify the locations for the earliest Gillespie settlements across the Prairie..
