Margaret McDonald bc 1850
« on: Wednesday 07 January 09 00:59 GMT (UK) »
I have a copy of the marriage extract of Margaret McDonald aged 22 of Corriemony parish of Urquhart, Glenmoriston, but there is no record of her parents on it. She married a Alexander Fraser, a carter of what looks like Fasnakyle, Parish of Kilmorack, they brought up their family at Bogdhu in Kilmorack. In a conversation with my late aunt she told me that Margaret's sister Louise and her husband a cabinet maker emigrated to Australia. I believe that they were newly wed when they left and that they were lost at sea.  There was also mention of a Donald MacDonald who went to Los Angeles in America and an Aunt Lily. Does this ring any bells with anyone.
