    Biography Notes
    • «b»DUNCAN McRAE Jr«/b» born 29/11/1852 (probably at Strathalbyn at the senior McLean's).

      The "Belvidere Hotel" between Strathalbyn and Angas Plains was licenced to D. McRae 1872 - 13/9/1874 and it is not sure whether this refers to his father, also Duncan McRae or to himself, From 14/9/1874 to 1880 the "Wellington lnn" at Wellington West on the Murray River was held by Duncan McRae. Again it cannot be ascertained, but this last would appear to have been the son.

      No record of a marriage has been found.

      DEATH: on 2/4/1881 at Adelaide, aged 28 years, interred West Terrace Cemetery.

      His father, Duncan McRae (senior) died 20 years after Duncan (junior).
