I am looking for someone who would be a desendent of Rev. Farquher MacRae's (Born:1580 Kintail) son Murdoch, who was born in 1622 or 1623. As far as I can tell Murdoch was married to a Mrs. M. MacRae and had one son Donald, that I know of. Donald, born in 1654 went on to marry and had a son named Murdoch. This Murdoch married a Julie MacKenzie. If this sounds like your line through Murdoch I would really appreciate hearing from you!
