Hi Mary, I note with interest you are requiring information on a McRae family in Applecross.
I do not have info on Farquhar or Rory but the family I am researching is also from Applecross around the same period and I am hoping we can make a connection
My 4* Great Grandparents were John McRae who married Isabella McLennan sometime before 1799.
Their son Donald McRea/McRae (my 3* Gr Grandfather) was born at Camusteel near Applecross in May 1799 (A lot of these details I have from Donald's death cert)
Another son Kenneth was born 23 Feb 1801 at Camusteel nr Applecross.
Then there is a gap until Maddys birth 29 Oct 1808 at Crowlin Island, nr Applecross.
I wonder if your Ann would fit into this gap?
The last child I have for John & Isabella is Rory born 12 April 1810 at Applecross. Could this be the Rory you are looking for ?
I wonder if Farquhar could also be a child of this family?

Hello. I am seeking information about Annie and Catherine Mcrae whose father, John, who immigrated to the Middle River region of Nova Scotia, evidently from Scotland. Is there any connection you could make to your John and Ann?

The only Rory McRae I have was oorn in 1888 to a Margaret Norn and ? McRae. I found this information in the Hudson's Bay Records for William Norn (1848-1852). I'm looking for more info on Margaret's husband and any additional family.

I am seeking same information as I am a descendant of Farquhar McRae (spelled thus on his headstone) and Isabelle McKinzie. I also believe that Rory (Roderick?) Macrae (born ca. 1775) and Florence McDonald are Farquhar's parents and am seeking to learn if John McRae and Florence Glass are Rory's parents. If so, any help going further back in time from there would be appreciated.
