red mail Easter Kinkell - (Easter Kinkell - Ross-shire)
My ancestor, Hector Morrison, lived in Easter Kinkell, and was probably born in 1811 at Urquhart. I would be willing to exchange information. I have his bible, and it says: "This Book belongs to me Hector Morison in Newton of Kinkell, in Ancreaish 1830" His wife has written her name in the front as "Isabella Morrison" - with 2 r's The Baptism Register from the parish of Urquhart and West Logie shows him as Hector Urquhart Morison, but he does not use the Urquhart in the Bible. The next child baptised had the suranme Urquhart, so perhaps there was an error? There is a confusion about his DoB. It is actually 1811, but the Cenus of 1841 showed him as 25, which is wrong. Enumerators were instructed to round adult ages down to the nearest 5 years.

red mail Macadams from Fearn? - (Fearn - Ross-shire)
Hello All. I'm starting to research a Macadam family who, according to the 1911 census were resident in Townhead Glasgow at 125 Parson Street. Mother Annie is recorded as Head of Household, though not as a widow. Husband perhaps Robert or John (2 eldest sons). She's recorded as a Gaelic-speaker from Ross-shire, the town/village unclear but looks like Feanor . Fearn? She and the eldest child, a girl, Isa, 16 in 1911, were born in Fearn (?) but the next child, 15, born in Glasgow. So it looks like a move south circa 1895. Focusing on the second son, John (13 in 1911), whose dying letter to his father from a shell-hole in France circa 1915 has rent my heart, and I so want to know more about his family. Many thanks to anyone who can help. All best Lorna

red mail Peter McKinnon - (Strath - Ross-shire)
Peter McKinnon was born c 1771 in Strath, Isle of Skye. I have him in censuses not living in Strath, but living with his daughter Margaret McKinnon and grandchildren Robert and Betty Smith. I found a record of Robert's baptism but no fathers name was given, so I'm assuming at the time Margaret wasn't married. Why would Robert and Betty be Smith's though? I also have Peter's napoleonic war records. However I am unable to find a marriage for Peter, so I am unable to find a baptism for Margaret (who was born c 1811). I also can't find any parents for Peter. My grandad is convinced there is a link to Bonnie Prince Charlie, but because I'm not able to go back any further, sadly this is looking like one of those brick walls.

He died at Inverness 16 October 1928.
red mail Tullich Muir - Ross family - (Tullich Muir - Ross-shire)
I am researching the Ross Family of Tullich Muir. My was Hugh Ross b.1809 Logie Easter, son of William Ross & Ann Munro. He married Catherine Campbell in 1858.Catherine was the daughter of John Campbell & Kate McDonald and was born in Ferintosh. Hugh and Catherine had the following children: William b.1859(my gt.grandfather) who moved to Newcastle upon Tyne and married Annie Jefferson Wallace. Robert 1861 d.1935 lived in Invergordon and married a widow - Jessie Graham John b.1863 - can find no trace Hugh b. 1864 - can find no trace Annabella b.1866 d.1876 Catherine b.1868 - after 1891 census no trace Margaret b.1871 married Thomas Wilson 1904 - one daughter Catherine Johan Campbell Wilson b.1906. Margaret died 1947, Thomas 1950 and Catherine 1987 and all are buried in the Kilmuir Easter Graveyard Donella b.1873 - no trace of her after birth but presume she died about the same time as Annabella as there was an epidemic of Scarlet Fever. Mary Ross b.1874 emigrated to Canada. I have an address for 1910 in Montreal. Donald MacKay b. 1878, emigrated in 1906, married Kathleen Abraham in 1920 lived in Oshawa, Ontario and died there in 1926. If anyone has any info on the above I would be pleased to hear from you.
