In Reply to: Mackay Embo Sutherland Scotland by Alex J J Watt of 986

My great grandfather :- John Mackay from embo
married Catherine Slater - Mackay
from embo
Appears to be mid 18 hundreds as their second child of seven - John was born in 1878
died in 1968 married Mary ann Innes at Helmsdale in 1910.
John and Catherine's children were :-
James, JOHN, George. Barbara, Annie,Lucy and Katy. I Have only information on John and his wife and their descendants. Unfortunately no birth date of the other children.
John Mackay and Mary Ann were my grandparents on my mothers side. We have some more information on John & Mary Ann's
children and their descendants.
We were in Scotland in 1998 and visited Helmsdale and also called in at Embo Post
office and spoke with the Postmistress
who is related to us and also called Mackay
Her Grandfather and my Grandfather are
possible Brothers. Granny's Heiland Hame The song was written by one of our ancestors.
We tried to get hold of a book on the history of Embo but it was out of print.
Hope this is a help look forward to here from you either way
