red mail McDiarmid
Looking to find Duncan McDiarmid who died 28 February 1866. He was a woodcutter (Forrester) We know he was born about 1832 in Killin. His parents were Duncan McDiarmid and Mary Mclaren. He married Janet McFarlane and she had an illegitimate son born after he died. On the son James's birth certificate it stated that Janet was a widow and recorded the date Duncan McDiarmid died. Have been on several sites but cannot find his death. They lived in Luss and finally Callander. Can anyone please help?
