A fine day to al!
My 5th great gparents were Harriet MacKay, daughter of Rev. Thomas MacKay, and Rev George Gordon of Loth, 1765-1822. His father was Adam Gordon and Adam's father was George Gordon of Dunrobin. No links of George's ancestors.

 I am ok going forward with descendants. It is the ancestral link of the Gordons going back to the 1700s with which I have trouble.
I believe they are of the Dunrobin Gordons.
(one line was called Sutherland, but still of Gordon ancestry until the 1839s.)

On the MacKay line i am  linked to Huistean 13th Chief Mackay, 1561-1614 and his wife, Lady Jane Gordon, 1574-1615. Her parents were: Alexander Gordon and Jean Gordon. Both their lines go back to the Gordons of Huntly.
