Jessie and Marjory McIntosh
Marjory McIntosh was my great-grandmother. She was born somewhere in Inverness-shire about 1864, and was the illegitimate daughter of Jessie McIntosh (b. about 1829). According to the wedding certificate, Marjory's "reputed" father is named Alexander McRae. I cannot find birth or death records for either of the McIntosh ladies, though I know Marjory married Alexander Davidson and died in 1944. Jessie was still alive at the time of the 1911 census, living with her daughter. I would like to learn more about the family, especially Jessie. Thanks.
