I have not yet found a death for Catherine with other surname McDonald or Bethune.

It's even possible the the maiden name of Catherine in the 1851 census I posted is also McLeod.

Age 78

Thanks Geoff.

Trying to get the maiden name of the Catherine in that 1851 census.

Also trying to find 2x Angus in 1861 to fit those deaths.

Also trying to find the deaths of Catherine nee McDonald and Bethune.

Have to do this by elimination.

Dave
 
Not easy Geoff when no baptism abt 1832 can be found for Rachel, the daughter of one of the Angus in Stornoway.

Not much help not knowing if the two deaths you posted were before or after 1861 census.

Dave
 
Thanks Geoff.

Age could be ok if it is wrong in 1851 given this looks to be same family.

So back to the question - maiden name of Catherine in 1841 and 1851 census posted. They look to be the same family.

So close to Stornoway then

The only one I can find with mother as Catherine MacLeod.

Dave
 
All born Uie in 1851 census so looks to be Stornoway in SP for births.

Back in about 30 min.

Dave
 
Looks like this can't be solved with too many Catherine MacLeods.

Birth
MCLEOD

MCLEOD Angus M 35 Woolen Hand Loom Weaver Ross and Cromarty

MCLEOD Donald M 10 Ross and Cromarty
MCLEOD Murdo M 8 Ross and Cromarty
MCLEOD Mary F 5 Ross and Cromarty
MCLEOD Margaret F 3 Ross and Cromarty

Rachel probably does not fit in between Donald and Murdo.
