Well-known member
Francis was born in Scotland, Caithness, Thurso, 11 Oct 1757. It is believed he was married 2 times, his second wife was Christina Murray Metler that we know about, it's his 1st wife that this enquirey is about. Her maiden name was Foss/Fuss/Friss & her father's 1st name was Philip. It is believed their son Daniel McKay was b. 1798 Caithness, Thurso - d. 1859, Welland On., Canada.

Francis' parents were Donald Mc Kay b. 07 Apr 1732, Watten, Caithness,
his mother was Elspet Sinclair. Francis had 2 brothers 1. William McKay
b. 06 Jun 1762, Caithness, Thurso. It is possible that this is William in
Caithness, Thurso getting married on 16 Sep 1807, to Jean Henderson.
William's occupation was a WEAVER!!!!!!!! I have 2 possible children for William & Jean, 1. Donald 2 Oct 08 Caithness, Thurso. And Ann b. 03 May
1811 Caithness, Thurso. 2nd. Brother to Francis was George b. 04 Jun 1765
Caithness, Thurso. I have a George McKay marring Janet Finlayson 16 Apr
1809, Caithness, Thurso. NOT SURE IF THEY ARE SAME PERSON!!!!!!!!!

I have an Uncle to Francis or, brother to Donald, John Mc Kay b. 03 Feb 1727, Watten, Caithness. John was married to An Falconer on, 20 Dec 1767,
Watten, Caithness.

Lastly I have a father for Donald & John, Patrick Mc Kay

If any further leads such as his 1st wife would be helpful as well!!!!!!!!

Thank You Very Much For Taking Time With This Posting!!!!!!
