(SDD 16) The Macdonalds of Reiff, Croft 235, Ross 240 (and 241)

Posted by alibaster on July 9, 2009

Progenitor John Macdonald, aged 89 in the 1851 census, may have belonged to one of the Strathcanaird Macdonald families. He and his wife Catherine “ketty” Macleod are the great-great-great-grandparents of Donald Macdonald-Ross of Thorold, Ontario, a specialist in Coigach genealogy (see link).

Their son Donald, aged 35 in the 1841 census, and his second wife Elizabeth Macleod of croft 234 (Reiff) brought up a family of seven in croft 235. In 1870 their daughter Caorstigh, the eldest of three Macdonald sisters, followed her eldest step-sister Catherine by marrying a man from Easter Ross. Andrew Ross took his West-Coast wife to Lower Arboll where his family had farmed since before 1820 at least. Their children included Donald Macdonald-Ross’s grandfather Ross Macdonald-Ross, who revisited his Coigach cousins each summer and maintained contact with them through the early 20th century.

Donald the genealogist has a “bunch of data” about his ancestors’ history in Coigach. I beg his pardon if the above contains any errors.
