Innes McKay, Macduff, Scotland
« on: Friday 08 March 19 15:47 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,
The above named Innes McKay was my great-Grandad. He was born in Macduff, Scotland c.1887. I believe he lived in Crook o'Ness St, Macduff and was a fisherman. I've always been told he drowned at sea but I've been unable to find any official record of this, so I'm beginning to suspect this may not be true. He married Margaret Ann Watson (b1886) who died in 1945 but I believe she had re-married after Innes' death.
Any information about Innes or Margaret Ann would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Jason.

Haven't you looked for a death for him on Scotlands People?  Possible death in Macduff in 1927 aged 39

Hi CaroleW,
Thank you. Do you not need to be a paid subscriber to have access to Scotland's People?
Does that record give a cause of death?
That's a good start thanks you Carole,
Kind regards, Jason.

Carole is off line at present.

To answer your question, Scotlands People is pay to view. You buy units and use these to view images online for BMDs up to the online cut off after which time you need to order certificates.

With these units, you could also look at the second marriage of Margaret Ann, following the death of Innes.

I think this is it:

Margaret Ann Watson and John Mair married in 1929 in Banff - ref 147/A 3

Her death in 1945 in Banff includes all three surnames: Watson, McKair and Mair.
