I am descended from the Macraes of Aultgrishan and Melvaig, near Gairloch, Ross, and would love to hear from anyone who may be related. I'll be as brief as possible!

GREATx3 GRANDFATHER: ALEXANDER MACRAE b.c.1780 Gairloch, Ross; m Mary Mackenzie 24.02.1804 at
Gairloch, Ross; children were ANNA b. 2.08.1805, ANNABEL b. 19.04.1808 m. Murdoch Mackenzie 6.02.1834, JOHN (my greatx2 granddfather- see below), ALEXANDER b. 6.03.1817, MURDOCH b. October 1819, WILLIAM b. 12.08.1822, and FINLAY b. 30.04.1825.

GREATx2 GRANDFATHER: JOHN MACRAE b.c. 1811, Gairloch, Ross, d 27.03.1866, Melvaig, Ross, m ISABELLA MACKENZIE, Gairloch, Ross, 21.12.1837. Isabella d 1.09.1895, Melvaig, Ross - her parents were John and Ann (nee Fraser) Mackenzie.
Children were DONALD (my great grandfather - see below); ALEXANDER b.c.1840, Melvaig, Ross; ANN b.c.1846, Melvaig, Ross, m William Chisholm 5.03.1868, Gairloch, Ross; MARY b.c. 1848, Melvaig, Ross, m Roderick Munro, 27.02.1871, Gairloch, Ross; and KENNETH b.c.1852, Melvaig, Ross.

GREAT GRANDFATHER: DONALD MACRAE b.c. 1838/40, Gairloch, Ross, d 28.06.1902, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, m BRIDGET CALLAHAN/CALLAGHAN, 7.10.1864, Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. DONALD departed Scotland between 1851 and 1861, and I believe met Bridget on the ship to Australia. Their sixth child, ALEXANDER, b. 23.05.1876, Ipswich, Qld, Australia, was my grandfather. I have lots of information regarding the family from the point of arrival in Australia.

I would really appreciate hearing from anyone who may "match" up. I can be contacted on Many thanks.
