    Married 19 Jan 1826  Kilfinichen and Kilvickeon, Scotland Find all individuals with events at this location  [2
    Children of marriage * Lachlan and Isabella had 6 children.
    * The first two, John born in 1827 and Isabella jnr 1829, were born in Kilfinichen & Kilvickeon. The third, Christina was born 1830 in Iona. The fourth, Catherine was born 1831 in Blarnacor. The last two, Lachlan jnr 1833 and Margaret 1836, were both born in Iona.
    * This indicates that the family moved around several locations within the western parts of Mull.
    * A major difficulty for the family arose between 1836 and 1841. Karen Kennett stated that the children "were divided up amongst relatives". This was evident in the 1841 census as following:-
    * Isabella has not been found in the census. Perhaps she had died - we do not know, but if so, this could have precipitated the dispersal of the children.
    * The two youngest children, Lachlan jnr 7 yrs and Margaret 5 yrs were living in Innair with their father, Lachlan.
    * John 14 yrs was in Ardtun with his mother's parents, Lachlan and Susan.
    * Catherine 10 yrs was living in Kentra with her grand-aunt Flora McLucais who was the sister of Catherine's grandfather, Lachlan.
    * Christina 11 yrs was living in Kentra in the household of her uncle Archibald who was her mother's brother.
    * Isabella jnr 12 yrs has not been found on the census. Maybe she had died.  
    Marriage/Wedding At the time of their marriage, Isabella was 26 years old and Lachlan was about 28 years and he had left the 79th Foot Regiment six months previously.
