    • John & Margaret were married in the Palace Hotel in Inverness on 26th April 1898. He was 26 years old and she was 33 years. They were both living in Ullapool, Lochbroom where he was the minister for the Free Presbyterian Church. The minister for the wedding was John R MacKay FP minister in Gairloch. Witnesses were Donald Beaton & Catherine Halbert??
      * Comment by Don Gordon in July 2020: The wedding arrangements are surprising. They were married in Inverness, when they were living 90 kms north west in Ullapool. Also the minister was from a long way away. And why did they get married in a hotel rather than a church even though John himself was a minister?
    Children of marriage There were five children - four were medical practitioner and Mary was a teacher. As their John said, he had four doctors and a 'dochter' in his Scottish brogue
