Can anyone tell me anything please about the Raes of Kirkcaldy? Especially Alexander Rae, a Farm Labourer who married Elizabeth McCulloch, possibly in 1776, certainly before a son John was born in 1802/3? His grandson Alexander was born 14 Jun 1829, but who was another Alexander Rae , born 16 April 1825 to a James Rae and Helen McCulloch? All in Kirkcaldy.
Does dropping the Mac suggest they might have fled the Highlands in 1746, or anything else to anyone please? Jeremy Burnett Rae
