yes, you can get Duncan’s death cert from GRO, but it will not give his parents names.
His 1899 marriage record might give you more information that could prove useful.

If Alexander was the son of Donald & Isabel, I would have expected some of his children to be named after them or himself & Sarah

I’m thinking along the same lines. I am interested in the name Flora as perhaps a family name.
What information do you have for the parents of Sarah Marion MacPherson?

Yes, I'm worried about that too. I persuaded myself (Mary) Margaret, his daughter, was named for Peggy (potentially Alexander's sister and perhaps herself named for a grandmother), Flora for her maternal grandmother and Duncan/Colin and John for unknown grandfathers. I also wondered if the RC baptisms, perhaps coercive to a degree, affected naming. But all speculative and indeed tenuous.

Alexander's wife's Sarah's 1874 death certificate gives her parents as Malcolm McPherson and Flory Black. I've assumed this is her birth/baptismal record:

MCPHERSON SALLY
MALCOLM MCPHERSON/FLORY BLACK
F
30/10/1815
5/11/1815
Glasgow, St Andrew's

so there is potentially a Flory/Flora naming link. I've not found any other info for this couple.

can you check the 1851 census, and post all the details.
I cannot find them in Morvern, as you say they are.

Where is the son Duncan born c. 1847 that is being mentioned in the early family censuses?

Monica

Added:


MCINTYN DUNCAN to ALEXANDER MCINTYN/SARA MCPHERSON
birth 5/3/1847 / baptism 7/3/1847


See now there was an early birth. He must have likely died young as he doesn't show in any census with the family  :-\

Margaret McIntyre, 7
Flora McIntyre, 3

1871 Census: 6 High Street, presumably Oban
Alexander McIntyre, 66, fisherman
Sarah McIntyre, 53
Colin McIntyre, 20 fisherman
