Looking for descendants of McDonald of Auchterhouse county Angus

Post by angus.h.d.mcdonald » Fri Dec 23, 2022 10:36 am

Hi Everyone.

I am looking for descendants of Alexander McDonald and Ann/Agnes Gray. Alexander was born c1767 but I do not know where as his entry in 1841 census for Auchterhouse (county Angus/Forfar) said "not born this county". He did not live to 1851 census.

Ann Gray was born in Auchterhouse in 1771 to James Gray and Katherine Millar. They is no OPR entry for the marriage between Alexander and Ann. They do have 8 children and all born in Auchterhouse;
- James 1794
- Alexander 1795 (my ggg grandfather) who married Janet Duncan
- William 1797
- Jean & Agnes 1799 ... Agnes died ... Jean never married I don't think and was a farmer at 1851 census
- Ann 1803 ... married Donald McLeod in Dundee. They lived in Auchterhouse and are buried at the cemetery there.
- Margaret 1805
- Janet 1808

There do not appear to be any other McDonald families in Auchterhouse from 1760 to 1820. It appears many of my McDonald Family lived in and around Auchterhouse and Charleston-Glamis from 1790's through to 1890's.

Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance
