Family members - McArthur

Hi Merle

The tendency to concentrate on male lines because those give continuity of surname means that I know very little about my McArthurs, as Mary McArthur was my mother's mother's mother.  Mary was born in Kilchiaran in 1850 to parents Alexander McArthur (agricultural labourer) and Margaret McLellan.  She married John Campbell from Ballachlaven, Kilmeny in 1876 and died at Ayen in 1935.  Ayen is between Ballygrant and Bridgend, near Ballimartin.

Hi Everyone, I’m from Australia and interested in the McArthur and Graham family lines. Members lived in/around, Balevicar, Ballineal, Kildalton, Bowmore, Killarrow.(unsure of these spellings as I have seen a variety of spelling ways). Especially interested in these families prior to 1830. Cheers.
