John M(a)cRae m Helen McGregor (indigo planter, India)
Posted by: John Macrae (ID *****2000) Date: March 04, 2005 at 02:59:48
  of 391

Rev William MacRae of Barvas, Isle of Lewis, Sct married Mary Macdonald and had ten children of whom the fifth was John MacRae b Barvas 28 Sept 1821 and died at Chupra, India on 17 Sept 1881. John emigrated to India and became an indigo planter, though he did return to Scotland on occasions.

After 1861 he married Helen Helen McGregor and they had issue:-
1. William MacRae.
2. Nellie MacRae (presumably Elizabeth). Married a Dr Pennie (Penny?) and lived laterly in Britain.
3. Mary MacRae, married a Mr Lovie (Lovey?) and lived laterly in Britain.
4. Annie MacRae.

I can find no trace of, or further information on this branch of my Macraes: can anyone help? The Macrae, MacRae and McRae spellings were regularly interchanged.

Information very gratefully received and exchanged. (john_whitelands@yahoo.co.uk)
