Inverness / Re: Kirkhill Macdonalds

I cannot see any other children born to that couple, and no marriage for that couple. The son John may have been illegitimate, and the mother Mary later married a MacDonald, so the child took on his step-fathers name. It is only a thought. To investigate further …
 The kirk sessions for Kirkhill for the time in question are available on Scotlands People, and you might pick up mention of an illegitimate child there.

This is John in the 1841 census. His age will give you an approximate birth year, abt 1771 to 1775

There is a John McQueen baptised in Kirkhill in April 1774 to John McQueen and Mary Fraser.

The 1901 census has John William Milligan working as a dock labourer.
He is recorded on the crew list for "ALCINOUS" in 1902-03
The 1911 census has John William Milligan working as an engineer in the mercantile marine.

The CONARGO was built by Flensburg Schiffsh, Germany, in 1902 as the ALTONA.  The ship was requisitioned by the Australian government during World War I and was subsequently armed for protection. The owner given in the Mercantile Navy List of 1920 was The Admiralty, Whitehall.

The ship was attacked on voyage to Lamlash Bay by U-96. Nine crewmen lost their lives, with 45 survivors being landed in Dublin by Italian owned NITOR. The CONARGO was being towed towards Holyhead harbour when she was torpedoed again and finally sank on 31 March 1918.

The names listed on the Tower Hill Memorial for the lost Mercantile Marines are : S Morris, trimmer; J Murphy, Trimmer, age 18; James Jordan, Fireman, age 45; James Clark Deegan, Fireman, age 23; Harry Adlwinckle, Fireman, age 38; Andrew Grundy, Scullion, age 17; Patrick Jackson, Fireman, age 29; Christopher Power, Fireman, age 21; Thomas Power, Boatswain, age 29; and Henry James Malone, Donkeyman, age 29.

William Hill was baptised April 6th 1794 in Peak Forest, Derbyshire
Dont know about the marriage or Martha's surname.
But if you read the above posts …..
you have been given the marriage details, and Matha’s surname. As a bonus, you get information about William's siblings, the previous Hill generation, and burial records as well.

I think the  Hill couple from Manchester are a different family. He dies 20 June 1798.
Who would think Habanezer was such a common name!
