I have an ALEXANDER MCRAE born approximately 1814 around Carr, Carn or Bundalloch, Kintail. Alexander was a shepherd. He married a Isabella Macrae daughter of Malcolm and Catherine Macrae. She was born about the same time. Their marriage registration is February 22, 1842. Both were residing at Bundalloch at the time of marriage.
I would like to find out who Alexander's parents were. They are not listed on his death certificate which I thought was odd as the death was registered by his oldest son, Duncan, who should have known. Duncan registered a number of deaths in the family.
In the 1841 census I have found a John and Christy McRae living in Helen Street on Loch Long with their sons Alexander and Duncan but I don't know if this is my Alexander or not. John was a wool weaver. Can anyone assist?
