My sister Patti and I are researching our branch of the MacRaes and would be very interested to hear from anyone who thinks they may be related to any of them. Below are the details which we have:

John MacRae, b. c 1835, Scotland, d. 1888, Ravanna, MO. (our great-grandfather) married Catherine Murray.

Their children were:

Duncan L., b.31 Dec 1869, Huron, Mich;d. 24 May 1906, Humeston, IA
Katherine L., b.1 Oct 1876;d. Jane, 1968, Ames, IA
Franklin E., b. Aug 1878;d. ??
Alfred Burnett b. Apr. 1880;d. 11 May 1908 possibly in Lander, WY (our grandfather)
Tolbert G, b. 16 Nov 1882, Ravanna, MO; d. 7 July 1963, Roswell, NM
- and 6 others who did not survive childhood

Duncan L.. married Jennie Buck and their children were:

Cecil Duncan, b. 13 Apr 1900, Humeston, Iowa; d.Nov 1989,Franklin, MO
Jennie Burnitta, b. 1901, Iowa;d. 1921 Iowa
Harriet Katherine, b. 15 May 1903, Iowa; d. ??
Lois Amanda, b. 1905 (aged 5 on 1910 census), Iowa; d. ?

Katherine L married Clyde Hesse and they had no children.

Alfred Burnett married Mabel Evans and their child was:

Donald Evans, b. 10 Mar 1907, Humeston, Iowa; d. 12 Aug 1981, Portland, OR (our father)

Tolbert G married Mabel Downing and their children were:

John Murray, b. 9 July 1914 (believed still alive)
Rebecca Josephine, b. 15 Apr 1919, Iowa; d. 11 May 1997, Roswell, NM

Duncanís son Cecil married 3 times and had 3 children

Duncanís daughters Harriet and Lois are believed to have married and may have had children

Both Tolbertís children married and had children.

Donald Evans married Ruth Mary Ann Wilhite and their children were:

Jean Margaret, b. 14 Apr 1944, Seattle, WA.
Patricia Katherine, b. 22 Oct. 1949 in Vancouver, WA.

...and Jean and Patti are now researching the family history!

If anyone feels they may be related to us through any of the above people, we would be interested to know, particularly if you have any information about EARLIER MacRaes or when and to where John MacRae emigrated from Scotland (which was sometime before 1865)
