Flora 1 Nov 1867 Denny, Stirling, Scotland.  Flora seems wrong.
She is.

Another couple named Donald McLeod and Janet/Jessie Campbell had a family in Glasgow/Govan/Denny who overlap with the family in Nigg, ROC:
John 15 Jan 1858
Christina 7 June 1861
Janet and Malcolm 16 April 1863
James 3 April 1865
Flora 1 November 1867
Elizabeth 23 April 1870

Flora McLeod, 3, born Denny, is in the 1871 census in Glasgow with Donald, 40; Janet, 36; John, 13; Mary, 11; Janet, 7; James, 5.

Thank you Forfarian.

Donald McLeod was Jessie Campbell's first and perhaps only husband.

It is the first family.  They appear to have gone back to Nigg, ROC and died there as I couldn't find them elsewhere.

Donald McLeod was Jessie Campbell's first and perhaps only husband.
The point is that there were two completely different Donald M(a)cLeods married to two diferent Janet/Jessie Campbells, and that Flora b 1867 in Denny was not a child of the couple in Nigg, ROC.

Forfarian thanks.  Yes, I realized that because Donald McLeod died in Nigg in 1867 aged 25.  A little hard for him to be alive in 1871.
