If these are the correct parents, your Alexander may have gone to the US..

Michigan, Death Records, 1867-1950
Name: Alexander McPhee
Widowed
Birth Date: 27 Oct 1854
Birth Place: Scotland
Death Date: 23 Jun 1933
Death Place: Lansing, Ingham, Michigan, USA
File Number: 009508
Parents = John McPhee & Jessie Cummings

Cert. has occ = shoemaker, in the business for 25 years. So that is feasible given the timescale.

He will remain a bit of a mystery.

No birth/baptism found and I won't be spending credits on those deaths even if I had them - 2 credits left.

I was looking because he was the informant for his father's death. Older sister Catherine is the connection to my tree.

Thanks Geoff.

That would fit and worth getting also being 1855.

Death 1905 McPHEE JANET [STEWART] 84 Kilmallie 520/ 22

That's one death I'll get next time I have credits.

Her parents should be Allan Stewart & Jane/Jean.

Lots of marriages for an Allan Stewart but none in Argyll.

Jane/Jean born in Duror so marriage if in her parish should still be in Argyll.

Children born Duror.

Can't see a baptism for son Duncan.
