    Denise Taylor (nee Macleod)

    Fergus Mcleod, (b. 29.10.1879 d. 13.6.1969) husband of Mina, was the son of my great great cousin, George Macleod b. 8.1.1855. George's father, John McLeod (b. 1817 at Rhinhoyi) was the brother of my Great Great Grandfather, David McLeod b. 1820 at Strathy). I would like information on Fergus's siblings John R. McLeod; George I.K. McLeod and Margaret E. McLeod.

    Surely this was finally known as The Pink House before its demolition to make way for the South Bonar industrial zone. It was latterly owned and lived in by a Mr Davidson.

    I tried to track down John McLeod Provost of Tain's death certificate and wasn't able to find it. John McLeod appears to have been a Draper by profession. He was born in Tain, Ross & Cromarty. His wife Catherine Munro is with him in 1841 but not in 1861. His son George was born in about 1826.

    Gordon McLeod

    John McLeod, Provost of Tain, married to Catherine Munro, was born in Tain on 14 Feb 1790 and died in Tain in 18 March 1878. His son George McLeod was informant and was born in Tain. John McLeod was the son of Thomas McLeod and Margaret Campbell. These people should not be confused with Fergus McLeod's ancestors.
