    Born 1765  Achnacarry Scotland Find all individuals with events at this location  [2
    • * The OPR for marriage of Christina and John have her 'in Achnacarry' which probably indicated that she was living in Achnacarry at the time of the wedding.
      * She might have been born in Achnacarry, but we cannot be certain about this as yet. * This note by Don Gordon on 3rd Sept 2018.
    • My Heritage have identified the marriage date as the 1st Mar 1786 in their transcription of the Marriage OPR Number 1041070.
      On SP OPR I find too that the date is 1st of March 1786, partly due to the faded ink and the refreshed ink writing and although the words of both are March, it doesnt appear to be March to myself, but the writing appear to be the same lettering in the following persons marriage of 11th March 1786. *Note by researcher Lorna McLean on 3 March 2020. The roll of OPR number 1041070 is freely available to view on microfilm at WAGS WA in 48 May St Bayswater, now referred to as Family History WA.

    • 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 Oag McPhee & Christ'n Cameron - married in 1786
    John Oag McPhee & Christ'n Cameron - married in 1786
    * Groom: John McPhee in Crieff - the middle name is sometimes thought to read 'Page', but FB Groups of Scotlands People state unanimously it is OAGE meaning younger. So possible that his father was also called John McPhee.
    * Bride: Christ'n Cameron in Achnacarry.
    * Date: Scotland's People has it as 28th Feb 1786 (Family Search hold original OPR scanned image correct date) Kilmallie parish

    D53 - False path for searching for an OPR for the birth of Christn Cameron (wife of John McPhee)
    Christn was living in Achnacarry in the parish of Kilmallie. These research notes are based on the possibility that she might have been born in another parish, and that her mother was not known. After extensive research was completed, it was found that her mother was Jane Robertson, so all the initial research was on a false path - a wasted effort.

    D55 - John McPhee & Christn Cameron
    D55 - John McPhee & Christn Cameron
    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.
