This is a bit of a longshot as I have very little information to go on. My husband's uncle was born here in Canada Roderick McRae Deans in 1920. His Scottish parents were James M. Deans and Gertrude Hemsley - not sure if they were married here in Canada, or Scotland where they definitely both originated from. The only James M. I can find in the 1901 Scottish census is James Morison Deans, age 2, father James Morison, mother Sarah Jane Cathcart. I've found their marriage and there is no McRae name mentioned anywhere.
Any connection to Roderick McRae/Deans from anyone?
