I am reasearching my family history in relation to the Surname McCoanchie from the Rothes area of Moray, Scotland. My great grandfather is Alexander McConachie born 1885 in Rothes and died in 1926 in Hastings, England. I know his mother was Margaret McConachie nee Sharp born 1857 and that her parents were Alexander Sharp and Isabella Chisolm.
They lived on Little Haugh Farm in Rothes but I can find no documented link to Alexander McConachies father. I am also told Alexander was an only child.
My family have mentioned the family graveyard at the Macallan distillery and I have looked into this with still not much success.
Does anyone know a McConachie married to a Margaret Sharp?
