Mary MacRae born Kirkhill 1830 died in Canada after 1851

Hi all, Hope someone might recognise this person and be able to give me some more information. My family are buried in Kirkhill Graveyard in Inverness-shire. One of the names upon the stone is shown thus, ''MARY DIED IN CANADA''. This entry relates to Mary MacRae daughter of Duncan MacRae blacksmith of Kirkhill and his wife Charlotte Morrison, and this Mary was born in Kirkhill on January 5, 1830. She does appear in Kirkhill, on the 1841 and 1851 Census but is missing after that. Now the stone was erected by my GGrandfather John Martin MacRae when his mother Anne died on April 17, 1903, so I expect that Mary may well have been dead by that date. There were certainly no other entries made upon the stone after John Martin MacRae died in 1917. So I am looking for a Mary MacRae born Kirkhill in 1830 who died in Canada sometime between 1851 and 1903 and I don't even know if she was married at all in between.........so this is a bit of a long shot but if anyone does recognise her I would be very grateful for help. best wishes to all, Martin
