Searching for ancestors of Mary MACDOUGALL (1831 Benbecula, Sth Uist-aft 1891 Portree). Daughter of Alexander MacDougall & Jan MACDONALD probably of Sth Uist. Mary was the first partner (1852) of my ancestor William MATHESON, (1822-1886) cattle dealer of Skye, then she married Archibald WHITEFORD in 1858. Mary had a sister Janet b 1829.

Searching for any family of William MACQUEEN (1893 Portee- aft 1927). Was of Bank St, Portree in 1927 when his father Dermaid MacQueen died. Mother was Mary Ann MATHESON (1859 Snizort-1922 Portree) daughter of my ancestor William MATHESON (1822-1886) cattle dealer of Skye and his partner Mary MacAskill.
red mail Bethune & Matheson of Snizort
Searching for ancestors of Mary BETHUNE (1783 Borve, Snizort-1855 Leachy, Snizort). Daughter of Donald and Mary or Ann (nee Campbell). She married John MATHESON pre 1823. Think she had a sister Janet (1779-1862) who married Alexander Fletcher c 1809.
red mail McQueen / McLean Skye
Seeking information on the McQueen (Mac Queen) family from Bracadale on the Isle of Skye. Kenneth McQueen (1770 - 1780) and Mary McLean (1780 / 1790) were living in Fernlay (Fernilea) nrea Taliska in 1841. Their children were Catherine 1813, Effy 1814, Donald 1819, Christy 1821, Mary ? and Malcolm ?. Effy married James Grant and they with 3 children came to Australia, with Mary in 1852. I believe that Malcolm was single and died in the workhouse in Inverses in 1905 but know nothing of the others. As the information regarding his parents was correct on his death certificate I believe that siblings or nieces/nephews lived in the area.

Stewart , Morrison
Looking for info on my gr/gr/gr/grandparents - John Stewart and Christina Morrison who lived on Skye in early 1800's. Their son John was born about 1820 but have been unable to find a birth cert for him and would also like to know if he had siblings. John moved to Dunbar and was married there in 1844. From 1851 until 1901 all the census records show that John was born in Broadford but I have been unable to find any information about John and Christina. Anyone else re-searching this family? Nan
