I am his granddaughter, born 38 years after his death. Alexander was born in the Parish of Lochcarron, son of Hector Macdonald and Catherine Matheson and I would be delighted to hear from any descendants. Alexander had two brothers, Roderick and Murdo and two sisters Isabella who emigrated to the United States (Illinois?) and May.

Sheila, do you have any information about Alexander's wife? Apologies errors in inscrption, now rectified, and for poor's one of those polished stones that needs light from just the right angle.
Added by Roddie on 23 June 2008.
Roddie, Alexander was married to Ducanina McInnes in 1884 and they had 13 children, my father Hector being the seventh child. She died in 1945 and is buried at Urray West graveyard. The rest of the children including my Dad are buried with their mother except one who is buried with her husband. I have a lot of information on my grandmother`s ancesters but very little on Alexander`s. I was so pleased to see the picture and find your site so interesting.

Thanks for putting up that information, Sheila. Really interesting. You never know someone on the other side of the world may be researching other branches of your family and this information could help greatly.
