Thanks Annie for your help.
  I was trying to do this by memory and wasn't too successful.  But you seemed to find out quite a lot.
  Isabella Ross married James D.M. Levy after she gave birth to a Williamina "Minnie" Munroe. I am wondering about this girl's father and what happened.  She is in my grandkids line through my son-in-law.  Isabella and James had 7 children, 4 in Scotland and 3 in Ontario Canada.  They came to Canada in the 1920's for the first child James was born in 1926.
  Their children are, with the information I have; Williamina 1909-1993, Rubina 1918-?, John 1920-2012, Agnes 1922-2001, Hamish 1924-24, James 1926-2011, Kenneth 1931-1988 and ?.
  Any info on Williamina's birth father would be greatly appreciated.  I am very sorry about the confusion.
Chip

The birth for Williamina would imply her father did not sign the register.

ROSS WILLIAMINA MUNR
1909
046/1 3
Bonar

My 1st thought is, step-brother is named William Munro i.e. could he be the father  ???

Illegitimacy is hard to prove but there may be an addition/correction on the entry from RCE (Register of Corrected Entries) which would name the father but there's no guarantee before downloading the birth cert. unfortunately.

Are you unsure whether Williamina travelled to Canada or do you know she remained in Scotland?

"Their children are, with the information I have; Williamina 1909-1993, Rubina 1918-?, John 1920-2012, Agnes 1922-2001, Hamish 1924-24, James 1926-2011, Kenneth 1931-1988 and ?"

The above can be confirmed from SP (ordering facility online) which I posted earlier with index numbers etc.

ROBINA PENUEL 1918
JOHN ROSS 1920
AGNES 1922
HAMISH (= James) 1924

Kenneth should/would have been born Canada if they emigrated in the 1920's?
He doesn't show in Scotland.

Could the '?' on your list be Mary b 1916 which I posted earlier?

I can confirm that Williamina's mother did indeed register her birth i.e. no father named & no RCE  :(

Rosinish: There are three Penuels interred in Balkakeil, Durness:

Penuel Grant (d. 1868, aged 7)
Penuel Grant (d. 1897, aged 29)
Penuel MacPherson (d. 1902, aged 70)

Penuel MacPherson was the wife of the Reverend William Grant (1825-1900), Minister of Durness.

The younger two were two of their four children.

I would observe that Bonar Bridge and Durness are 75 miles apart, which was still a great distance in the early 20th century
