Nice to hear from you GR2.

I am getting ready to make another post. This one will cover the witnesses of the son of Alexander Innes. This will be William innes.

Take care

In the family of Alexander Innes and Elizabeth Stewart they had a son called William. William Innes was born 2 Sep.1819.
The witnesses to this birth were William Innes in Sluggan ( Inveravon ) and Alex. Grant in Tomnavoulin ( Kirkmichael )

The witness William Innes in Sluggan I have named Senior or Elder.

Yes, this is the marriage I referred to before.  You have read the number wrong.
ScotlandsPeople is the definitive site and they don't have any Innes-McDonald marriage in the timescale you mention (1740-44).

That seems to fully establish that William Innes and Elizabeth McDonald who married in 1770 were the parents of your Alexander. You will have to investigate the other Inneses in Inveravon further to see if you can establish links to your known family.

The William Innes who witnessed the the baptism of Alexander's son in 1819 could be his father or possibly a brother, perhaps a cousin.
