    A relative John Fraser (born 1821 Nigg) married Margaret Gallie 1849 in Tain, where he worked at Wallace & Fraser. Might this John Gallie be related to Margaret in some manner?

    I wonder if this is a relative of John William Walker Gallie born 1893 Edderton and married May Mercer 1922. He was the brother of James Gallie born 1890, and the son of Barbara Walker (daughter of Annie Ross) and James Ross McLean Gallie. She was born in Edderton and James at Carrieblair Farm.

    my great-great-great grandmother was born Isabella McLeod who worked for a John Gallie supposedly a shoemaker in Tain in 1837-1838 when she was arrested for stealing and given 10 years transportation to New South Wales. I have just returned from a visit to Scotland which included Tain and was able to see where Isabella McLeod was held in what was called the toll house before her trial in Inverness. Is their anyone who could add to this information please? I am happy to phone anyone at my cost.

    James Gallie, born 1890 was married to my Great-Grandmother, Isabella Robertson (born 1888) in Tain. My Gran was Catherine MacKenzie Robertson. She was 3 years old when James and Isabella married. Don't know who Gran's father was. Lovely to see the picture though.
