MCDONALD of Rouchel, NSW
« on: Thursday 22 June 17 10:26 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I have a few ancestors that have been eluding me. These ancestors arrived from Scotland on the "Heber" on the 27th of July, 1839 (says the info I have in a letter from the Archives Office of NSW), and settled in the Scone District, specifically the Rouchel area of NSW. These ancestors were Findlay (Finlay possibly) and Catherine McDonald, aged 40 and 36 respectively. They were from Inverness and as of recently I haven't been able to find anything about their life in Scotland. They had children at the time of travel; Ferchan (18), John (15), Nancy (16), Margaret (14) and Catherine (8 ). Whilst I have found a bit of information about John and know a lot about Catherine (as I am descended from her), I still haven't been able to find anything about Finlay and Catherine's life either in Scotland or Australia, nor their children other than the ones I specified. I do know the supposed death dates for Finlay and Catherine, and that is the 29th of Nov 1866 and the 19th of November 1868.

If anyone has any clues or anything that could help me find mention of this family, I would be so grateful!

Thank you!

Thank you! That would mean a lot to me as C. McLean is my g-g-great grandmother, and Finlay my g-g-g-great grandfather!
I'm sure you are so much closer than I am, over here in Western Australia, which is why I am so grateful, thank you!!
