Hi,
I'm a descendant of Donald Beaton as well, I've just sent you a message.  :)  Monica has the correct family - Margaret was the daughter of Farquhar Beaton & Mary Beaton, b.1855 in Howmore S. Uist (registered under the name variant Bethune).  Farquhar and Mary were not married - Farquhar went on to marry Ann MacLellan, while Mary remained single.

Margaret Beaton had the following children:
Mary b.1878
Donald b.1880
Collin b.1883 (died young)
Mary Ann Beaton b.1885

She also had the following children from her marriage to William Macdonald:
Angus b.1888
Kenneth b.1891 (died young)
Ann b.1893
Kenneth b.1895
Joanna b.1899 (died young)

I have traced this line of Beatons back quite a few generations, if you're interested.  :)
