Mann/Mackay/Macleod families
« on: Friday 05 August 05 20:09 BST (UK) »
Looking for any info on these families, probably in the Borgue area. Aware of a Colin Mann (c.1782) married to Janet Fraser (c.1793), think she was born in Thurso but his parents appear to have come from Nairn. Their daughter Jane Sinclair Mann (c. 1827, Thurso) married Donald Mackay (b. 16/04/1829). Their daughter Catherine (b. 19/01/1861 - my great grandmother) married Alexander Macleod. Would love to hear from anyone interested; we have some more info too.
