Subject: [Islay] Genealogy info on Dallas descendants needed


William and Margaret Baxter Dallas lived and died (he 1841, she 1843) at Grastle (other spellings also noted), the Oa, Isle of Islay. Their children Alexader born 1789  died 1858 Greene Co., AL, USA; Jannet or Jessy/Jessie married John McQuilkan  and by 1841 her children are living with others on the Oa; Peter Dallas born 1794 lived in Glasgow and died 1872 but interred Kilnaughton Cem, the Oa;

Elizabeth married Hugh Camerson died 1881 Ontario, Canada; William married Rachel McTaggert and believed died in Greene Co., AL, USA after 1850; Isobel married Duncan McKerrell and died Port Ellen after 1841, her family removed to Mobile, AL, USA; nothing has been found for Dougal born 1807 or Margaret born 1811 so presumed died young. 

My request- does anyone have information on any of the children of Jannet Dallas McQuilken?

Margaret born 16 Feb 1881, married Duncan McCuay/McCuaig; Mary born 7 Feb 1820, Catherine "Cetty" born 15 Nov 1822; Alex born 23 Aug 1824; William born 4 Oct 1826; Elizabeth born 24 Apr 1829; Niel born 23 Sep 1832
