Peter McKinnon was born c 1771 in Strath, Isle of Skye. I have him in censuses not living in Strath, but living with his daughter Margaret McKinnon and grandchildren Robert and Betty Smith. I found a record of Robert's baptism but no fathers name was given, so I'm assuming at the time Margaret wasn't married. Why would Robert and Betty be Smith's though? I also have Peter's napoleonic war records. However I am unable to find a marriage for Peter, so I am unable to find a baptism for Margaret (who was born c 1811). I also can't find any parents for Peter. My grandad is convinced there is a link to Bonnie Prince Charlie, but because I'm not able to go back any further, sadly this is looking like one of those brick walls.
