Can any other MacRae's help me please??? I am a descendant of Colin MacRae born 1766 in Kintail, Ross, Scotland. His father was Farquhar MacRae & Mother, Mary ?. Their daughter, Elizabeth MacRae was born Abt 1795 and married Donald Munro born 11 Jan 1788 in Dingwall, Scotland. They emigrated to Australia in 1839 aboard the "Asia". I am having great trouble tracing the MacRae's back as I am getting different information on dates and names. Would really like to get the ancestors correct. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Pamela,
Sorry, I can't help you with tracing the lineage of your ancesters but I was interested to see that Donald and Elizabeth travelled on the "Asia". My great Grandparents, Donald and Elizabeth McRae, also voyaged on that ship in 1839. They eventually had 13 children, one daughter being born on the ship off the coast of Devon. Donald was also a native of Ross Shire. He and his wife are buried in Stroud cemetery, NSW.
Chances are, Colin and Elizabeth and Donald and Elizabeth would have known each other. Anyway, thought the connection was interesting.

Hi Pam,
My Great Great Grandparent Janet Mcrae came to Australia aboard the Asia in 1839 as a widow with three sons Donald b 1814, Christopher b 1816, and Duncan b 1825. We think Donald was deceased early. Both Christopher and Duncan lived, married and died in Stroud, NSW. We can trace Janet back to her father John Macrae who married a Mary Grant and then John's father is a Farqhar Macrae who married a Helen Grant. We can't trace Janet's husband who was a Donald Macrae and we think he died before janet came to Australia. Bill McRae
