Tracking descendant from Duncan MacLennan, Pioneer to River Denys

I, Vicki Wilson, from B.C. am 7th generation to Duncan MacLennan who immigrated in 1821 and set aside 2-200 acre parcels for his sons in River Denys. He was buried in Margaret Taylor Cemetery in 1828.

We are travelling across Canada and will be in Cape Breton in June 2022. I read William Arthur "Billy" Matthews purchased one of the parcels who died Nov 21/2007. Any ideas on where to locate the Cemetery or parcel would be appreciated.

If there are any registries I could go to for immigrants & locations of tombstones.

Thank-you Vicki Wilson [email protected]
