    • Christina was born before 1746 if she might have been older than 96 years old when she died in 1842.
    Gender Female 
    Biography Notes FURTHER RESEARCH: Gene (& MyHeritage) have family trees with the Christian Cameron - managed by Derrick Clark, David Neil Duffin and Fiona Joy McMillan.  
    Biography Notes There was a grave yard above the level fields of Glennevis Farm called 'Tom eas an t-slinnein'.
    John Macleod states that "In this burial ground I came to know that my mother's great-grandparents are buried - Ewen (Hugh) MacMillan and his wife Christina Cameron. He was 101 when he died. His wife, whom my mother might remember died in 1842 at the age of 96. She may have been even older - for my great grandfather, her son Donald died in 1845 was over 80 at his death". NOTE: Glennevis is near Ben Nevis.   [1

    • Buried in a very neglected grave in a graveyard called 'Tom eas an t-slinnein' which is above the level fields of Glennevis Farm. The gravestone inscription is:
      "Erected by DAVID SMITH factor of Gigha Argyllshire to the memory of his spouse ANN MCMILLAN, who died the 31st December 1842 aged 57 years also of her father HUGH MCMILLAN who died 23rd December 1835 aged 101 years. Also her mother CHRISTINA CAMERON who died 26th November 1842 aged 96 years also ALLAN MCMILLAN who died the 10th January 1843 aged 64 years."
      (ref: Highland Archives cited in an email from Alan Macleod on 12th Feb 2021)
      It is not clear who was Allan McMillan, died in 1843. Maybe he was a brother of Hugh.
