I've got the gorse out of my pocket and located the death certificate of Christian/Christina Urquhart (nee Cameron) on SP.

d. 19/4/1856. Father: Duncan Cameron, spirit dealer(deceased). Mother: Ann Munro (deceased).

Duncan may possibly have been involved with the distillery that was on the Black Isle at about that time?

Hi Darryl,

Sorry to resurrect this old topic, but I believe it may be relevant to my own family. My g-grandmother Jamesina was a Cameron from the Black Isle. She is a descendant of a Duncan Cameron from Balnabeen, who married Hellen Munro in 1777. I wondered if what you suggested might be true, that the same Duncan Cameron married two Munro sisters. Have you discovered anymore regarding this?

My line goes as follows...

i. Duncan Cameron of Balnabeen m. Hellen Munro on 17 Apr 1777

ii. Ann Cameron b. 19 Jan 1783 - d. 22 Dec 1865 at Knocknafanaig (Unmarried)

iii. Margaret Bisset of Knocknafanaig b. 7 Dec 1812 ("bastard daughter to Evan Bisset in Bogbuie and to Ann Cameron in Wellhouse") m. John Cameron of Newton on 22 Feb 1839

    - John Cameron was born in Lochalsh (not a Black Isle Cameron) Abt. 1818 according to census data, but I can't find a death cert for him even though he was still alive when Margaret died on 9 Jan 1895 at Woodside, Ferintosh

iv. John Cameron b. Abt. 1847 at Knocknafanaig m. Anne MacDonald b. 22 Dec 1854, at the Free Church Manse of Urquhart in 10 Jan 1879

v. Jamesina Cameron b. 11 Apr 1896 at Garguston, Killearnan m. Alexander MacDonald on 3 Dec 1920 at Mulbuie Glebe

Do you still think this could be the same Duncan Cameron?

Cheers,
Alasdair

Hi Alasdair
Sorry, I haven't. My dad has done a lot with the family tree in the last few years, but focused on the MacKenzie line. I can check to see if he's done anything with the Cameron line.
Cheers
