Alexander and Margaret had a daughter Isabella, born 1768. Does anyone have any info on this family?

thank you. I have an Isabella Donaldson, born 1768. Could this be one of their daughters? even Elizabeth?

Hi Frank

Isabella/isabel/Isobel and Eliz/sabeth are often used as synonyms  :)

Hi again Frank  :)

Just popped in to SP and there are no Is* Donaldsons b. Caithness 1766-1769, so it looks like the Eliz/sabeth might have become Isabella/Isobel etc.
