Thanks for getting back to me. I can supply you with a few more details. There are a few Alexander MacRaes in our family history. Here's what I know.
Farquhar MacRae, born in 1735 in Rosshire and Cromaty county in Scotland had 5 children. They are:
Son MacRae (unknown name b. 1765)
Alexander Bain MacRae(b. 1768)
Annie MacRae (b. 1770)
Christopher MacRae (b. 1772)
John MacRae (b. 1774)

The youngest, John-immigrated from Inverinate, Scotland in 1816 to PEI and married Mary Matheson. They had 10 children-the info that I told you about in my last message.
A daughter(name unknown but married Alexander Ross),
Farquhar MacRae-who married Isabella McMillan
My family descends from Farquhar and Isabella but I would like to know more about the other siblings.
Hope this helps.
