Margaret married Alexander MacDonald. (Alexander MacDonald was born Cal 1756 in Scotland, probably and died before 1851 in Stonefield (Achnacloich), Skye.)


An Alexander McDonald and a Margaret Fraser were married in Inverness on 30th December 1789.

Although lots of McDonalds and Frasers were married in Inverness, this is the only one I can find in Scotland for Alexander & Margaret.

This groom was a Corporal, 71st Regiment.

This was probably the 71st (Highland) Regiment of Foot (McLeod's Highlanders); probably the HLI (Highland Light Infantry), though this regiment experienced many name changes and mergers.

If Alexander was in the army, this could explain why he was about 33 when he married, and why they married in Inverness rather than in Skye.

Not a positive finding, but looks quite likely. Possibilty of further research in Army records.
