Margaret MacLean, daughter of Christine Fraser & Donald Maclean married John Hutcheson early 1900's. Would like to know if Margaret had any siblings and the marriage date of her parents, if this is possible.

Possible marriage for parents in Killearnan in 1904.

For Margaret:

MARGARET ANN MACLEAN and JOHN HUTCHESON
1941
098/A 120
Inverness

You can view the 1941 marriage registration online on SP.

Her death:

MAGGIE ANN MACLEAN/HUTCHESON
97
Mother's maiden name FRASER
2005
200/ 27
Black Isle (South)

From her age at death, Margaret Ann born c. 1907-8?

You should be able to find the family in the 1911 census which will help you find some siblings for her.

As Don suggests, have a look at some of the search results on SP for clues. For example, there is this death in the Black Isle: Donald MacLean, 77, mother's MN Fraser died in 1982. A possible brother? Given the approx birth year, if a sibling, should show in 1911 with family likely.

I thought I was doing well, how wrong could I be. I have been on SP looking for a marriage between Ann Grant & Donald McLean. Their 1st child, Donald. was born 1871 in Killearnan and their daughter in 1874. My assumption was that the parents would have married between 1865 and 1870. No luck. Then thought look at the 1881 census records, for the family, again no luck. Any thoughts.
