I am not directly descended from Alexander & Flora, but I have their photos, handed down to me as "Mr & Mrs Kintail McRae" so we must be related. In addition, Alexander's daughter, Flora (1896-1960) married Francis William Shaefer (1886-1975) from the Armidale area of NSW. His brother, Thomas Frederick Shaeffer (spelt Schaeffer not Schaefer) (1884-1952) married Catherine Jessie Hamilton (1881-1971, whose mother was Mary Ann McRae, my mother's aunt (1855-1907). My earlier information comes from "MacRaes to NZ" by Molly Akers. A Schaefer book has also just been published by Glenda McCallum.
