Hello,

12/12/1850 MCPHEE EFFIE JAMES MACDONALD/ F Inverness /INVERNESS 098/ 0140 0326

Marriage: 12 Dec 1850; Inverness, Inverness, Scotland; James MacDonald, Flesher, Tomnahurich Street and Effie McPhee, Fairfield Lane; married by the Rev. A. Clark.

Only one of several daughters with no definite marriage found to date:

Hellen McDONALD b. abt 1852 Inverness, Inverness

Two possible marriages in Inverness, Inverness (others in other parts of Inverness):

23 Dec 1869 to a Donald McPHERSON

20 Jan 1871 to a Daniel FRANK

I can't see a baptism record for any child to either couple before 1872.

Please see if these two couples can be found in 1871. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much.

I will now look for a death for Hellen 1861-1871.

In 1861 and 1871 the family was living at 8 Maclean's Close, Inverness, Inverness so this one is too far away but the only one I've found so far. No Hellen or Ellen deaths 1861-1871 in all of Inverness. I also checked using M'D and M D and MacD.

Death 1871 Helen McDONALD Kiltarlity, Inverness Age 22

So a mystery at the moment. Age 9 with family in 1861 as Hellen. Not with family in 1871.

Did she marry?

Regards,

Dave

Hello Barbara,

Thanks.

Oh well. I can't find a marriage or a death for Hellen so progress of a sort on this one. Three marriages ruled out.

Regards,

Dave
