My great grandfather Andrew MacDonald was born in Balintore in the parish of Fearn, his father was Joseph MacDonald and his mother Jane Ross, I have the 1841 censuses showing my g g grandfather, my g g grandmother, my g grandfather and his brother John, and a Janet Corbet, but no mention of their daughter Janet born 1832. I have tried to find my g g grandfather Joseph, but without success, according to a family member Duncan MacDonald who is 93 remembers being told by an old family friend that the family originated from Islay.
