red mail McRae/Beaton/Edward/Fraser
Christina McRae (b: ~1845) was from a large family in Ullapool. She moved with her Mother (Ann McRae, maiden name McLeod) and a sister Dolena to Brechin ~1875. I have a good sense of what happened with her and her illegitimate son (William Fraser, my Great Grandfather), but interested in knowing if any living relatives from her side of the family. Her sister, Ann McRae married Simon Beaton and they had six kids (Isabella, Christina, Alexander, George, Annie). Isbella Beaton married James Edward, their son Hugh Tyler Edward (died 1974) is as far as I got. Looking for any photos or correspondence, stories related to McRae lineage.
red mail Mcdonald/Macdonald/Sinclair/Millar
I am looking for anyone who is researching the above families. Donald Mcdonald snr married a Margaret Sinclair whose parents who John and Isabella Sinclair (nee Millar). Donald's father was Charles Mcdonald. After Margaret's death it appears Donald and Margaret's sister, Ann had 3 children, Georgina Ross Mcdonald, Isabella Millar Mcdonald and my Great Grandfather, Donald (or Daniel) Mcdonald (born 1863). Donald Snr and Ann died when Donald jnr was young and he may have lived with an 'Aunt Betsy' prior to emigrating to Australia in 1886. Donald Jnr may have worked in a textile mill. If anyone is also researching this family I would be grateful as Donald Snr's death certificate only mentions 'Charles' as father so I can't go back any further.

red mail McIntosh Family
I wonder if you can help me please with regard to my Gx3 grandfather James McIntosh. He was born in Edinburgh in c1769 and married an Isabella Nisbet in Dunbar in 1794 whilst he was in the East Lothian Cavalry. He features in the Muster Rolls at Kew. At one time in 1795 he was absent and Brechin added in the margin of the record. Can you think of any reason why the regiment would visit the Brechin area? Or was he visiting family, as ironically I have found McIntosh's in your area :- William and Euphane (nee Hunter) had children with familiar names to my family eg Mary b 1786 and William b 1789 ( born Dundee), David b 1794 ( St Andrews) and Jean Brown b 1796, Euphan b 1797, and Summer Blair b 1800 (born at Brechin) Indicating that this family moved around a lot (Military Service also?) My James's family were all born in Edinburgh :- James b 1807, David 1809, William 1812 and another Jean Brown b 1816. I cannot find any reference to James And Isabella after the birth of their children, when James was listed as a Gentleman's Gentleman. I hope you can possibly assist me? Kind regards, Gordon
