Their only surviving son, my grandfather, Alexander R W Mackay b. ca 1844 Thurso, m. 3 Dec 1872 Thurso, emigrated to Calgary, Alberta Canad, 1891 d. there 1902. I am searaching for great great grandfather, (Alexander?)Robert Mackay, military sergeant, m. Ann Mackay d.1830 ?? I know of two other farms adjacent to Achingills. They are Carsgoe and Sordale.
