Hi, I am trying to find descendants of a Christopher "Ban" McRae who emigrated to New Zealand. He was born in 1781 and married a Janet (Jessie). I am descended from Christopher's younger brother Farquhar McRae who came to Australia in 1837. I am trying to clarify some family tree info. Thanks heaps Lucas MacRae
