Interesting, that tree has different parents for William Barclay, Isabella's father. We have David Barclay and Isabella Marshall, bp 1791 Arngask, that tree shows them as William Barclay and Agnes Key bp 1789 Kilmany birth 1789 Logie. Of the two I prefer our version because Isabella reappears as a name and Agnes doesn't, also birth in Arngask ties in with likely burial.

If we are correct then the rest becomes irrelevant!

Oh, the joys of family trees!

I agree with you, our version is more credible! We don't know anything about the sources for that other tree (that's why I am always cautious with trees from big genealogy sites). It is interesting however for research purposes.
