Ann Mackay & Thomas Forbes, Latheron Sco

Greetings, all!

I am attempting to establish the lineage of my ancestress Ann Mackay who married Thomas Forbes in Latheron, Caithnes Co., Scotland, 1845. Would this marriage record of 1845 list their parents' names?

Sometime around 1860, Ann and Thomas removed to the Eaton Corner, Quebec area (Cookshire County). The remainder of their children were born in that vicinity.

According to her gravestone in Colebrook, New Hampshire, Ann was born 10 Oct 1828. According to her death certificate, she was born 27 Jan 1825! In any event, she was most certainly born in Latheron around that time. She and Thomas had a son John Mackay Forbes, providing a possible link to Ann's father, i.e., John Mackay.

This is the only concrete material I have. Latheron, Scotland is literally overflowing with Mackays and Forbes families. If anyone has done research in that area of Scotland, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you!

Best regards,

Ryan D. Wood
