In Reply to: Farquhar McRae b. abt 1822 Scotland by Chris Thomas of 391

By chance I came across the name Farquhar McRae while looking for my Christina Jane McRae daughter of Donald McRae of Kingussie, Invernesshire, Scotland.

On the same page from 1854 there is an entry as follows -

Baptized at Lealt on 19th October (1854) to Farquhar McRae residing at Aullachirinn a son named Andrew born in fornication (there was a fair bit of that going on at the time apparently).

Other McRae entries on the same page are -
Baptized at Torraculin 20th Oct to Murdoch McRae, shoemaker there, a son named Finlay

Baptized at Torraculin 20th October to Donald McRae at Inverinate a daughter 4 years old named Christina

Donald McRae (Hector's son) has this day 30th Dec registered the birth of his son Colin born 6th May 1853 and his son Hector born Nov 30th 1854

Hope this helps
