Hi Muss,

I was likely adding to my post when you posted.    I see the Rootsweb info includes email address for the person who updated 28 September this year.    :) 

Hopefully  there's possible leads for our OP to follow up.

Perhaps our OP may consider following up on the original records re those two Upper Rouchel isolated graves  ::)

JM

Thanks JM! Yes, those two isolated graves are definitely Finlay and Catherine as per the FamilySearch website: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-89WB-HH7D?i=1&cc=2058669
I'll see if there is any way I can find the actual location of the roadside graves.

Hi Muss! Thank you for this, I have just contacted the author of the database and judging by the amount and type of information they have, I'm guessing that they could be a close relative of mine, separated by only a few generations. Fingers crossed!

Just out of interest, there is a death registered in Scone on 19 November 1868

Female McDONALD, parents William and Ann at Scone reg 6518/1868

This is most probably a baby but I suppose there is a small possibility that the name was too difficult to read when the index was created ...  ?

Ros

Thanks Ros!
I think there might be a small sliver of possibility but it is probably not likely. In addition, I'd be wondering where the names William and Ann came from.

I wouldn't discard the possibility of a William in the family just yet...

Not any help on the current conversations/queries but I did more searching last week for a possible connection with the place name in Aus being in relation to a place name back home in Inverness.

A few links which may/may not be of relevance/interest but closest name is 'Stoney'  :-\

Hey everyone,
 
I've been in contact with someone that has linked Findlay and Catherine to his family tree (on Ancestry) through Mary McNeven. Their information said that Mary was born in 1829 in Inverness (according to a death cert (one that I haven't seen)). They mention all the other children, but place Anne and Margaret as one person. This doesn't make sense to me as Nancy and Margaret were mentioned as two separate people in the NSW Archives records. He has written a book which he is willing to sell to me, but I just want to make sure that I have the right people before I invest $50 in the book. Is there any way a child could be missed off the register? Or simply could Mary be Anne? Or is Margaret, Anne? I am so confused.
