Was the marriage in Scotland or NSW ?

No birth on SP for Alexander McDonald with parents John & Ann.

No marriage for a Marcella.

Probably Cathedral of SS Peter & Paul.
Anne McDonell born Inverness abt 1822 arrived abt 1839.

I have no details re Alexander's arrival. He may have been a few years younger than Anne.

Thanks Geoff.

That must be a different tree to the one I found that had him born 1824.

Father would have to be wrong on death reg.

Alexander McDonald Immigration 23 Jan 1840 New South Wales, Australia , Isle Of Skye, 20 1820 George Fyfe James McDonald Anne Stewart
Alexander is a farmer in NSW not a stone mason.

What does the tree have for deaths of James & Ann??
Alexander is a farmer in NSW not a stone mason.

What does the tree have for deaths of Ann??
Do you mean Ann Mcdonnell, if so..

"Death 31 Dec 1893 Black Springs, Mummell, Nsw, Australia inflammation of the lungs."

Which James do you mean, Dave?

If that tree is correct then parents also arrived. Death reg has father as John.

'George Fyfe' James McDonald Anne Stewart


The only death for a Marcella

MC DONNELL MARCELLA 113/1853 V1853113 119 INFANT
Thanks Geoff.

Ok, if parents on Alexander's death reg in post #1 are correct then it can't be per 'George Fyfe' in 1840 with father as James.
