Re: Place name

Apart from the use of the very small number of identical names used in Islay at the time, I can not find in my data any of the persons you name.  I have multiple cases of persons with the same names, but the dates and/or spouses show they come nowhere near matching your data.

Good Luck & Merrie Christmas.

Hi Ken;


When you have time, I would like to know more.


The earliest name I have is Duncan Cameron of Ballychatrigan.  His son Hugh married a Nancy McNabb in 1826 on Islay.  Duncan married a Margaret McVorran as a second wife in 1809 on Islay. I don’t know anything about Duncan or his first wife. I am a descendant of Hugh. 


Merry Christmas and happy new year.

Thank you
