John Smith & Kathrin McKay
« on: Monday 18 December 06 05:41 GMT (UK) »
John Smith and Kathrin McKay were married in Watten 11/12/1735. Any information re their family would be appreciated, I know they had a son Alexander b 1743in Watten  who married Rachel Sutherland in 1769 also in Watten.

How frustrating to research the name Smith :o and the Sutherland isn't much better!I've hunted high and low to find a birth for Rachel and NO LUCK. :'(

Here's hoping
Gibson, McKenzie & Elliot,- Northumberland & Montrose
Smith, Sutherland,McKay- Watten Caithness
 Gorie, Dishon, Allan, Smith, Tait & Clouston - Orkney
Downie and McDonald Allen & Adam- Ross & Lanark
Buchanan, McFarlane - Stirling & Dumbarton
Cornall, Thompson, Hoole,Gillow,Catterall -Lancashire
