Could it be that they were married in a private house by the Free Church Minister?

John Boyd who married Isabella (Bell) McGregor is linked to our direct Boyd family and to date have limited data on their descendants apart from the names of their four children. Census data states that Bell McGregor was working with "cousin" McLachlan family. I believe Bell's parents to be John McGregor and Cirsty McPhee. Has anyone worked out how these families are linked - or is that a simple question to ask but a major exercise to answer?

Hi Carolbea,

The John Boyd & Isabella McGregor 1869 marriage cert certainly does record Isabella’s parents as John McGregor & Christina McPhee. 

I Suspect that the link is through the McPhee line: Isabella’s mother, Christina McPhee and Donald McLachlan’s wife, Marjory / Misey McPhee being sisters but have not yet found birth records for either.

From https://familysearch.org/search/
Children of Donald McLachlan & Marjory McPhee:
Hugh McLachlan 29 June 1836 Morvern
Donald McLachlan 28 May 1838 Morvern
Alexr McLachlan 25 Dec 1839 Lismore & Appin

here is the family in 1841: 525/ Lismore & Appin, Glensanda
Dond. McLachlan / 45 /  Grieve
Misie (Marjory) McLachlan   / 35
Children: Hugh, Donald, Alexander

Catherine McGregor / 14
Ann McGregor /12
Isabella McGregor / 8
Jessy McGregor / 5
Catherine McPhee / 35 F. Servant
*All born Argyll

Many thanks Brigau for that confirmation - the McPhee link is interesting as a Boyd McPhee  link in 1774 in Maryburgh.
