I have traced my family tree back to Alexander (1736 - ??) and Isobel McPherson (1736 - ??). They had at least two sons, Donald (1762 - ??) and John (1768 - 1862). John immigrated to Ontario Canada in 1824. John married Catherine McDonald (1775 - ??)and had six children that lived. Angus (1796 - 1873), Anne (1798 - ??), Donald (1799 - 1883), Catherine (1803 - ??), Alexander (1808 - 1890), and Elizabeth (1810 - ??). From Canada I have completed many branches of the family tree, but have been unable to gather any earlier information from Scotland. Many Cattanach's still live in the Kingussie, Newtonmore, Inverness areas. I presume that these are distant relatives, but have no link at this time.
