Malky.
Alexander MacDonald was also my GGGrandfather (through John Troup MacDonald).  I would love to see the older picture of Bogend Cottage! (and any additional history from the lovely lady).

Hi Laurie

The picture was posted by me.  I can send you a copy of the other picture of Bogend by Personal Message, but before I can do that you need to post 2 more messages - you need to have a minimum 3 posts to access Personal Messages.

My connection to Bogend is through Elizabeth Murison, the wife of James Drysdale McDonald and Elizabeth's illegitimate daughter  Maggie Ann Kidd Murison who was always counted as a "child of the marriage". 

My grandfather Charles Smith Murison was the 1st of Maggie's 3 illegitimate children born at Bogend and raised by James & Elizabeth.  James always counted them as his own grandchildren.

I assume your ancestor John Troup McDonald was James' brother.

I can only really give you history of Bogend during the period from James & Elizabeth's marriage in 1882 until the house was sold in controversial circumstances in the 1980s, but I can put you in touch with a direct descendant of James & Elizabeth's son James who may know more about the earlier history.

Thanks so much for the quick reply.
Yes, John Troup MacDonald is a brother of James Drysdale MacDonald.  I'm interested in any history of the cottage - early or later.
I'll make another post tomorrow.

Thanks,
Laurie

Hi Seaton Smithy

I also have an interest in Bogend Cottage, Midmar.

If I post two more messages (I am a new member), would it be possible to PM it.

I'm sure we could arrange  that.

What is your connection to Bogend?

Hi and thanks for the reply.

James Drysdale MacDonald had a sister called Agnes Henderson MacDonald (1853-1880) who had some form of relationship with William Low, which resulted in the birth of Barbara Wilhelmina Low in 1873.  Barbara Wilhelmina Low, in turn, had some form of relationship with William Kerr (b.1868), which produced a boy also called William Kerr.  This William Kerr was born in Bogend Cottage, Midmar in 1896.  I do have other info about this situation that I am happy to PM to you (when I get the necessary rights), but I do not want to go into too much detail in public.

Sorry, I should have said that the first of the William Kerrs in my previous message was my great uncle and the second of the William Kerrs was my first cousin.
