Hello everyone - I came across your website during a search. My ggg grandmother was Janet Livingston, which seems to be the same Janet that is in the Birth Records-Ardnamurchan part of the website. It is listed as: |
Parents: John McPhearson & Janet Livingstone
Place of Birth: Achtennie
Child's Name: Catherine
Date of Birth: 18 Oct 1828
My records show my ggg grandparents as John McPherson and Janet Livingston from Achateny, who indeed had a daughter Catherine sometime around 1831 according to the 1841 census (the census ages are notoriously inaccurate, so the 1928 date is probably correct). Other children included Alexander, Betsy, Janet, Allan, Hugh, and Solomon, all born in Achateny.
I would be very interested in what source material you have access to that shows Catherine's birth, as I have not been able to find it.
John and Janet were married in Kilchattan, which leads me to believe they may have come from there too. They had to have some connection at least. Janet's parents were Donald Livingston and Catherine (Dinning?).
Any help would be appreciated.
