Thanks to all who are helping with this; very much appreciated. The death entry for Flora in 1837 doesn't give her age but it seems she's the right person. I have attached it. Duncan doesn't seem to have a wife in the 1841 census.

I am not familiar with the name of the place where she died except that it's listed as Iona.

Yes, I found her burial. Recorded as McPheat on SP. No doubt it is the correct Flora. Shame that no age is given.

Are you able to send me a link to the burial record?

Or maybe what I saw *was* the burial record rather than the death record?

27 March 1837 Flora McPheat. It is the church record, so I think of it as the burial.

I also see that their son Neil Black born 1819, was buried on Iona 25/04/1839.

Thank you for the info on Neil.
I don't see Duncan in the 1851 census unless it's the one aged 72 in Lismore Appin and Duror

I suspect that Duncan has died between 1841 and 1851.
In the 1851 census the son Dugald Black (and wife Mary MacInnes) is living on Iona, working a croft at Clachancorrach. He may have taken it over from his father.

At first I had wondered if Duncan ever lived on Iona but since Dugald was born there and Flora died there he must have. It would be so nice to learn where Duncan was born but it's not looking too hopeful.
