Hello Paul.  I’m not related.

 

 

Good Luck and Happy Hunting,

Sue Visser (up the road in Guelph and been through Strabane many times)

 

A possibility from the 1841 Islay census transcriptions (so if this looks like your family, it’s wise to check out the original records)

Folks, this is my first post, so I hope I am doing it right.
My current information about my wife's Morrison family is WILLIAM MORRISON (b. 1788,;d. 9 May 1805); DONALD (b. 1827, Upper Killeyan, Oa, Islay; d. 24 Dec. 1902 Strabane, Ontario); DUNCAN (b. 3 Mar 1883; d. 29 Mar. 1941). Duncan's son, WILLIAM DOUGLAS MORRISON, is my (deceased) father-in-law.
Naturally, I would appreciate any further information - or correction of errors.
sincerely,
Paul D. Mack
