Clan MacInnes Roll of Honour

Many MacInneses have fallen in the wars. Some were buried in the areas where they fell. John MacInnes of Scotland has searched the burial and memorial web sites and has come up with a list of names that match our Clan MacInnes Sept lists. There are names for U.S. and abroad. These records are provided here courtesy of John. The listings are in the original Excel and Word formats, and in html or PDF for on-line viewing.

Note, some of these files are quite large. File size is shown next to the link name.

From John MacInnes:

There is a good site on those that served in the US Civil War and gives 
rosters for all those that served and whether they survived or not.

I've downloaded the appropriate information from these pages relating to 
MacInneses and those who may, or may not, be septs and put it into excel 
format for processing the information. There are some other variations on the 
spelling that I've also added and which could be debatable as coming from 
Clan MacInnes and some derivations which point to Irish origins.


The Commonwealth one is complete and lists those from Scotland, rest of the 
UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. The US sites are fairly 
disparate depending on who runs the cemeteries/war memorials and the fact that 
the US did not have a policy like the Commonwealth of burying war dead in 
the vicinity of where they fell. The US Civil War information is still 
incomplete as their adding information all the time from rosters during the 
war and the confederate information has been subject to destruction.


It's interesting information not just for family genealogy but clan history 
as it shows the how the members of the clan have spread throughout the world 
and where different variations of the spelling arise. For example literal 
derivations of Mac Aonghais such as McAnsh / McAnininch etc are more common 
in the states than elsewhere suggesting earlier movement when the 
standardization of English was still in flux; spelling such as 
MacInnis/McKinnis as opposed to MacInnes/McInnes (i.e. an "-is" ending as 
opposed to a "-es" ending) is more prevalent in North America (almost 
exclusively); and whilst McInnes is the most common spelling worldwide 
MacInnes is the most prevalent in the historical areas of the clan - Argyll, 
Skye etc.
