red mail Robert Mackay / Margaret ?? - Caithness
Hi, I am looking to trace the name (and any other details) of the mother of my GG Granda. My GG Granda was John Mackay (b abt 1850 d bef 1895) and I have a note of his marrige to Catherine Bremner (gros 037/00 0008) marriage date was the 7th of July 1882 in Halkirk. I have been able to get the names of their parents from the registrars entry, but I cannot make out the surname of John's mother..... her first name was margaret but I really cannot make out her maiden name.... i think it starts with 'B'. John's father was Robert McKay/Mackay (d bef 1882). (I think John may have had a brother Donald) If anyone can help with the maiden name of margaret it would be much apreciated. Many thanks, Averil
red mail Alexander Mackay
I am trying to find information on my great Grandfather Alexander Mackay. All the information I have on him is his name. He was married to Margaret Jane McLeod (MacLeod) who was born 26/03/1899 in Wick, Sutherland, but died about a month after giving birth to my grandfather 10/10/1915 in Thurso. An Alexander Mackay Farm Servant is listed as being married on the registrar's death record. My grandfather was Alistair Mackay born 17/09/1915 I assume in Thurso (died 1982). My grandfather was brought up by Margaret Jane's sister Mary Bell MacLeod and James Reid (who were married 02/12/1919 in Thurso. Any information would be much appreciated.
