Apologies Sam for not posting the link.  Poor internet signal.

From the Biographical Index of South Australians - not always accurate but an excellent resource for South Australian research.

McINNES Alexander born c1813
Arrived 1853 on the NEPTUNE
Married to Mary born c1815 and died 1853 at sea
Children Marionc1835-, Rory c1837-, Margaret c1839-, Janet c1841-, Donald c1846-, Catherine c1848

McINNES Roderick born c1837 Died 5.9.1880
BuriedTungkillo SA
Arrived by 1859  Lived Tungkillo Religion Roman Catholic
married Catharine nee McDONNELL/McDONALD
Children Mary 1859-, Donald 1861-.

Roderick's marriage registration in 1858 has been indexed as Robert aged 20 years and father Sandy McINNES.  I would be confident that Rory/Robert is Roderick son of Alexander aka Sandy. 

I suggest you search http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/    Service is temporarily down at the moment.

If you are seeking any other info just ask. :)
