Inverness / Beaton family (again) in South Uist Benbecula
« on: Wednesday 03 January 18 21:00 GMT (UK)  »
Hello I am new to the site and am hoping someone could help me out-  I have read loads of stuff on the Beatons from Benbecula on root chat however I am not finding the people that I am looking for.  I am trying to trace my family tree. Am getting my knickers in a knot  :) So I am trying to find info on Beatons from Hacklet or Redbank -:Mary Beaton who was a weaver and was born around 1827. I cant find a record of her birth or her parents or if she married- She is on the census of 1911 as head of house 84 years old - her daughter was called Margaret who has put on her marriage certto William MacDonald that her father was Farquhar Beaton - I cant find any records for this- -she worked as a domestic servant -she was born 1858 -  and died in 1922.Margaret had two kids that I can find -there could be more  :) 1 is Mary Beaton born on 18/1/1878- says illegitimate on birth cert. and Donald Beaton born 24/7/1880 also illegitimate. He is my great grandfather. Just extra info he served with the cameron highlanders and was wounded in ww1. So does anyone have any knowledge of these Beatons. Hope its not too confusing and thanks
