Inverness / Re: Alexander McDonald 1861 Alvie Census, 2 wives? Lookup Request

Thank you for the link. I will check it out. You are correct, I have all the Census info from 1841 to 1901 for most of the family. Son Donald at Ballachroichk, maintaining some siblings & mother. I live in outback Australia so all me research is online. No nearest LDS, & the LDS online doesn't offer the Census material.

Forfarian, thank you for your reply. Gut feeling told me, it was transcription error. Plus I had followed through on his sister so I knew it wasn't her. The confusion I faced was 2 Alexander's  marrying a Jane/Jane in 1835 one being Jean  Stewart b. Braemer Aberdeenshire,  the other Jane McDonald b Laggan Invernesshire. So imagine my surprise when clicking on both Jane's in Ancestry both wives, both same age, but the different p.o.b.'s Transcriber must have  been doing some creative guesswork instead of just transcribing. Once again thank you & stay safe. I do subscribe to Scotpeople & Pay as a final resort for proof as I don't accept all of what ancestry offers.

Thanks DonM
I subscribe to and have spent all my credits on certs. I really did not wish to spend any more on what could plainly human transcription error, as Alexander had a sister Jane born about the same time as his wife. Not knowing how things work in Scotland and what memberships hence access are available, I just thought that I would ask, sorry.
No worries & thankyou Vicki

Thankyou ColC,
I will investigate further the 1784 Glasgow death of first John. This family is proving to be tricky to trace.

Hi All,
Need help piecing this family together by finding the marriage place/cert of James Campbell (b1755 poss. Kilbrandon and Kilchattan, Argyll.. tbc  d 1827 Luss, Dunbartonshire) & Janet Caldwell (b1755 d 1829 Luss, Dunbartonshire). Possibly marrying around 1779/80. Have drawn a blank, with Scotlandspeople & IGI.

Both are buried in Luss. On their headstone is a son: John Campbell b.24/07/1795 d.13/01/1865. So far I have: John CAMPBELL was born on 24 July 1795 in Kilbrandon and Kilchattan, Argyll.. tbc.  He married Ann COLQHUON on 30 December 1820 in Luss, Dunbartonshire. They had four children during their marriage. He died on 13 January 1865 in Luss, Dunbartonshire, at the age of 69.
Also on headstone is John & Ann's daughter:Elizabeth CAMPBELL was born on 30 October 1822 in Luss, Dunbartonshire, her father, John, was 27, and her mother, Ann, was 26. She had two brothers and one sister. She died on 2 September 1861 in her hometown at the age of 38.

I think James & Janet were the parents of my 3 x grt grandmother, Jean CAMPBELL born 25 July 1792 in Balvicar, Argyll, tbc. she was one of six children all born in Easdale. She married Lachlane MCKINNON on 5 January 1817, LUSS. Dunbartonshire. They had seven children in 15 years. She died before 1851 in Teangue ? Sleat, Inverness-shire, I am also unable to find her burial.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
cheers from Oz
