Vivienne I have spent holidays in Scotland, my son lives there.
He took me to the large registery house in Edinburgh, we spent 2 days there, we also went to Fort George in Inverness, to the Seaforth Highlanders museum there, it was all very interesting but not of much help to me.Viv I still feel that you found the right family with Donald and Kate from Tarbat but I dont know how to follow it up from there, I know Ishbel was not a good lead for us as she had no children which was a shame, I wonder what happened to Donald junior.
I hope your Ishbel is behaving herself, I am glad you like the name see we do have something in common as well as screaming when we hear the name Macleod.

Groans more..........

I will return to scotlandspeople and try to find marriages for some of the others,although I do think I have done that before and will have to go through this thread to look to make sure,and my records on SP.
OR
Look in my hundredweight of written notes on the family of Ishbel.

But it will have to be in a couple of days as work has been piling up and I need to clear some.
We really need 1911 Scotland,but another 2 yrs to wait it seems.

That I is probably Ian
Hector Ian Macleod was a lance corporal in South African Infantry 4th Reg
He died 12/10/1916 aged 21
He was the son of Rev. Donald and Mrs Kate Macleod of Tarbat Ross-shire and was obviously uncle to this child.

Ishbel has told me that I have to spend tomorrow on her famil,y as I have now caught up on most of my work.
I shall be contacting Ireland about Duncan mcleod.
I will be writing to Rev john macleod in Tarbat,he will be sick of hearing from us all soon.
I do wish I knew his age as I would try and find out how he is connected to the Rev Donald Macleod.
I will also try and find more marriages etc for the rest of Kate and Donalds kids.
So really my day has been mapped out for me.
We can but try.

Any leads on Hector Mcmurchie{1915}??I have not found a marriage for him of course as SP marriages only go to 1933.
Maybe you should write to Edinbrough?

About the Rev. John:

http://www.bible-sermons.org.uk/preachers/43-John-MacLeod

Rev. John MacLeod, Tarbat

Congregations Served
Missioner to Students, Aberdeen Free Church 1974 - 1975
! > Canada 1976 - 1978
Tarbat Free Church November 1978 - present

Positions Held
Clerk to the Free Church Presbytery of Ross 1989 - present
Clerk to the Free Church Training of the Ministry and Admissions Committee 1985 - 2001
Principal Clerk of Free Church Assembly January 2000 - present


That might give an idea of his vintage. That page has a form for emailing him, and also a phone number.

His name may be completely coincidental, of course.

His postal address is in Tain (I'm not going to try to figure out the geography).

At BT on line for MacLeod post code IV20 there are seven listings. One could always just call/write them ...

And then of course there's always the possibility of a Viscount in the woodpile. ;)

HA HA HA HA HA ,Evelyn a lady?HA HA HA HA.
Rain stopped play on gardening,its peeing down,just finished my transplanting of roses in time.
Going to idle a few hours in idle chatter and useless lookups that get nowhere.
I think I have earned it these last few days,even though I say so meseln.

So where has Janey been hiding then?On holiday?working ?or just avoiding us?
BTW Janey ,if you "google" Aubrey Noble you will find that things may be a bit nearer an ending,or may not!

Please dont tell me that he and I are related, I cant look that miserable even if I try.
I was only joking ,I am certainly not a lady and I am glad of that.
Maybe he is related and that is why he is not very helpful. He has never had the decency to reply to my emails,so I will disown him.
Thank you Vivienne and Janey? for your help

Same tree
Norman Macleod

ABT 1900
in Tarbat, Rossshire Died

18 DEC 1965

The only one with a death date so I guess he is one of the tree owners closer relatives.
