Sutherland / Looking for George Polson's parents
« on: Wednesday 13 July 22 13:12 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone find George Polson's Parents please I think I've tried everywhere
George Married Isobel McKay n 13.4.1809 Kildonan Sutherland

I am following up his Son Donald Polson b 22.1.1810 d 22.1.1858 West Helmsdale informant to the death is his son Alex .      I have siblings yet for Donald

What I have is Donald married Barbara McLeod I don't have a date for this marriage
Their family so far is
John b 1835
Alexander b 1839
George ???
and Isabella b 1837 ,and the death for Barbara

Barbara's death aged 11 months 21.9.1858  ( this seems odd ) informant is Brother John
Barbara parents are Donald and Barbara
Note the death of Donald is the same year as the baby

Any help will be appreciated as I have Polson's in my family and want to link George to them

The above three are all cousins - also my cousin's  so the lady writes
My father had 3 sisters and two brothers Margaret Richie is daughter of Mary
Margaret Shapley is Daughter of Jessie
Aleck Mackenzie is the son of brother Jim
Alecks inherited the house on Dry Island ,where my father and grandfather lived
When father married he left Dry Island and built a Heatherlea for my mother . It was there that Maisie ,Al and I were born

Maisie corresponds regularly with the two Margaret's ,but we have never written to the Dry Island cousins of course they will know who you are signed Mrs Frasor
