Hello,

I'd like a look up please for a Donald MOIR in Lochabers, Inverness in 1901.

Sorry, but that's all I have so far except he should not be single but married or widowed and probably aged 40-50.

He is listed as a 'brother-in-law' and informant to the death of James STRONACH in 1910. I have not yet found the marriage so I don't know who Donald married.

The name could be MORE in the records.

I presume Donald married a STRONACH because I can only find one unmarried McDONALD (Hellen) if it happens to be on Annie's (spouse of James STRONACH) side. There are 5 possible STRONACH sisters (Isabella, Harriet, Margaret, Anne, Janet).

Regards,

Dave

Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much. We ruled out two marriages for Hellen so it had to be on STRONACH side.
EDIT: Can't find a death for Hellen so that possibility still open.

I have two things to check. Where is Mosstown? And when Margaret was born. Not that good a fit:

name: Margaret Stronach
gender: Female
baptism/christening date: 18 May 1852
baptism/christening place: ELGIN,MORAY,SCOTLAND
birth date: 01 May 1852
birthplace:
death date:
name note:
race:
father's name: Andrew Stronach
father's birthplace:
father's age:
mother's name: Ann Cowie
mother's birthplace:
mother's age:
indexing project (batch) number: C11135-5
system origin: Scotland-ODM
source film number: 990801
reference number:


Please see if you can find them in 1891. Thanks. I hope Margaret's age is a better fit.

Regards,

Dave
