Hello Shona,
The date you gave for Barbara Mackay's birth is wrong. I believe that Barbara was born in Embo, Dornoch from the information that you gave. Embo is (or was) a fishing village 3 miles North West of Dornoch and births in Embo in the 19 century were given as Embo, Dornoch. Most people in Embo had the surname of Mackay. There were many Barbaras, Isabellas and Donalds in Embo in the past. I was born in Embo and have many relatives with these first names. If you contact Kath McKay or Alex Watt who write to this forum they will be able to give you more information on Embo Mackays and perhaps with luck details on Barbara Mackay.
