red mail Alexander Corbat Ross
My GG Grandfather was Alexander Corbat Ross who was born about 1860 in Tain, Rosshire according to his death certificate. I have not been able to identify him on the 1861 Census. He was in New Zealand by 1883. I did think that the Corbat part was likely a family name but cannot find any Ross-Corbat marriages either. Any clues would be much appreciated.

red mail MacRae
My husband's great grandparents were Duncan Macrae and Margaret Morrison. Duncan and Margaret were married 27th May 1870 in Rosemarkie Ross and Cromarty. Their children were born between 1870 and 1885,David, Sarah, Donald Angus, Christie,Christopher, Jessie, Jessie McLean, Murdo Duncan, Catherine, John, Alexander and Margaret Anne. I think Duncan was born C 1850 in Petty, Inverness Shire and Margaret was born C 1851 in Assynt Sutherland. He died 1936 in Tain she died 1924 in Tain. If anyone recognises this family would love to exchange information.

red mail Alexander Ramsay
Seeking information on Alexander Ramsay and his family who lived at Abbots Hill, Tain until May 1903. Alexander appears to have been born about 1826 and had at least 5 children: One son - (William) moved to New Zealand, became a successful farmer and raised a large family there - another (Euan) married Jessie MacKenzie from Lochbroom and settles with his family in the Dingwall/Inverness area - a third son, Alexander MacDonald Ramsay was a tailor in Pickering, N Yorks from 1880s to 1920s. Fourth son (John) spent some time in China and appears to have been an Inspector in the Shanghai Municipal Police. The only known daughter in the family (Maggie) appears to have married and to have moved to London (not sure which came first). Grateful for any help in further identifying these people. Jim
