Hi: Farquhar is my gg grandfather, father of John Duncan MacRae of Wardsville, Ontario, Canada. John Duncan was said to be conceived in Scotland but born in Canada in 1848, died at 46. My grandmother said that Farquhar, her grandfather, was Roman Catholic while his wife Jannette was Free Presbyterian as were those in the family coming to Canada if 1848, apprx. in my line. Farquhar spelled his name McRae, while his offspring in the area spelled it MacRae. He was from Sallachy, Scotland, born 1800. My gramma said Farquhar married his first cousin, if that helps. Farquhar's wife, Jannette was a daughter of John(b.1770) and Kate, info is online. The MacRaes liked to raise horses. They left due to religious persecution, were Free Presbyterians, and land removals.
Best wishes.....M.Robinson

Jannet was my Great Great Aunt, sister of my Great Great Grandmother, Catharine. I am struggling as well because it was only recently that I found out that Catharine (who died in Grosse Isle 1849) was a MacRae who married a McRae and that Jannet was her sister. My Great Grandfather (Donald Bain McRae)and his two brothers (John and Murdoch), were orphaned (Catharine died in Gross Isle, husband John Bain McRae died shortly thereafter) and were possible raised by Jannet and Farquhar? Could we somehow connect and compare notes?
