Hi Dave

1861 has James b. Aberdeen, the address matches 1871...

A couple of un-sourced trees have him b. Inverness ?

1861 census

Born abt 1831 Aberdeen
Occ: General Labourer

Reg no: 98
RD: Inverness
Civil Parish: Inverness
Town: Inverness
County: Inverness
Address: 8 Maclean's Close
ED: 12
Page: 19; Line: 23; Roll: CSSCT1861_13

James McDonald 30
Euphemia McDonald 28 [b. Kilmallie, Inverness]

Duncan McDonald 5
Jessy McDonald 4

Geoff

Another tree [slightly better structured] has James Sr's birth as Abriachan [about 10 miles from Inverness], I wonder if this has been wrongly transcribed as Aberdeen in 1861?

Thanks Geoff. :)

I believe Abriachan is correct.

Death: 11 May 1892; 14 Tape Lane, Inverness, Inverness, Scotland; James McDonald, carter, married to Euphemia McPhee; age 60 ?; parents James McDonald, crofter, Abriachan, deceased and no mother listed; diarrhea which he had for 10 days; informant James McDonald, his mark, son; certificate #230

Age is all over the place so I don't know what to believe. I can't find a baptism. With a common name and uncertain age it's impossible to pinpoint him in 1841. He is probably not at home anyway.
