Personal Information    |    Media    |    Sources    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name John Oig-meaning younger MCPHEE  [1
    • His middle name appears on first glance to read'Page'. This has been recorded until in Nov 2018 the actual OPR CLEARLY reads Oig'-attached-as per the OPR of his marriage found by Researcher Lorna McLean Nov 2018. Oig gaelic meaning to imply 'the younger' but not necessarily evidence of the father being the reference to the elder as it may have been his grandparents name or middle name using patronymics. Uncertain but many people on FB Group pages also offer this explanation. "Oig=younger"

    • In the OPR, it is difficult to read the date of the marriage - Scotland's People have transcribed it as 28th Feb 1786. Maybe it is 1st March or 31st March. The important thing is that the year is definitely 1786.

    John McPhee was the last of a line of McPhee tenants of Crieff farm. Christn Cameron was born in 1771 in Achnacarry to parents Jane Robertson and Donald Cameron, the saw-miller. John and Christn were married in 1786 and their daughter, Christina, was born the next year. In 1788 John took over the Crieff tenancy after his father died. In 1804 they were evicted because of the clearances for farming sheep rather than cattle. They settled on the outskirts Fort William.
