Hi Marg, I replied to your post awhile back about MacKays in West Zorra-but at the time I had little info. I have spoken with my husbands aunt and this is not his line. But, his family was from Dornoch, and included a William and an Angus. His Angus never married and his William married a Catherine Mackenzie or MacKay. William was born in 1799. They also settled in West Zorra. My family is British and I have never delved into the Highland Clearances. I don't know if this is simply coincidence-or maybe if I take this family back a few generations we will find a tie. My husbands aunt did mention that a lot of the kids names were names in your line (they are all named after relatives). I am waiting on hard copies of all of this. I do know that my husbands namesake Alexander "Piper" Mackay played the bagpipes and "led people into West Zorra". They were known as Piper-MacKays. I remember this one because when we were coming up with kids names-Piper crossed our minds as a strong family tie. Some were also known as "bairn-MacKays" because they were blond. I will keep you posted as I dig up these MacKays.
