William MCKENZIE bd 1806 and Catherine GRANT bd 1815
Wiliam's baptismal record says 11 May 1808 in Urray, Ross and Cromarty. He was born to Roderick MacKenzie and Janet McLennan. They are my ancestors who emmigrated from Scotland shortly after the birth of their two children JANET 16 July 1836 and RODERICK in 01 September 1838 in Contin Parish. I can find baptismal records of the two children. The next I know of William and Catherine is that they are living in Canada in about 1838. Family lore, says William was a shepherd in Scotland, and that baby Roderick died at sea enroute to North America. I would love to have more information about them such as marriage information, relatives, occupations, residency, ship name, ship departure / arrival point, departure records, etc. Most appreciative of any help provide. Thank you. Greg

Donald McGregor(60)(born Lochbroom)is listed as Tenant in Meikle Garve?, Contin, Rosshire in the 1841 Scottish census. Donald's wife is Ann Grant(50)(born perhaps Fodderty).
