My 4xG Grandfather Hector McInnes married Marion McCaffer at Kilchoman on 17 December 1822. The 1851 census shows most of the family living at Coullabus and gives Hector’s place of birth as Rothesay, Isle of Bute. Hector died in 1856 in Port Glasgow - there is no forename for his father but his mother is given as Mary Johnson.
Marion McCaffer’s place of birth is usually given as Kilmeny or Kilchoman, probably about 1790. Frustratingly, I have never been able to find a death certificate for her though she was still living with her daughter Isabella Grant and my 3xG Grandfather, her son Neil b. Kilchoman c 1833. There is plenty of evidence of other activity by family members around Port Glasgow and Greenock during mid to late 1800s (not least that my grandfather, another Neil McInnes, told me that there were so many of us that there was a close in Greenock called McInnes Close) but Marion McCaffer McInnes vanishes from records after 1861.
The children of Hector and Marion that I know of are Duncan, Marion, Isabella, Neil, John, Peter, and Donald, all born between about 1827-1839 at Kilchoman.
