I am interested to know what happened to grandson of Duncan and Mary Roger (through their son Peter, sawmiller in Rosehall, Ross & Cromarty). Grandson John Gregor Macgillivray married in Cawdor in 1864 a cousin of my Macgillivrays (who seemingly were not connected) named Catherine Dallas (from Inchyettle, Cawdor).
John and Catherine had children John Gregor and Sarah (twins born in 1866), Catherine (1870), Duncan (1872) and Alexander Simpson Hendry Macgillivray (1873). The last two were born in Plymouth, England. I can't find them on the 1881 census. Where did they go?
Many other members of the Dallas family emigrated.
Catherine Dallas' brother Alexander was a solicitor in Inverness, Lachlan Dallas (described by a relative as a "good man" went to America, Peter Dallas was a grocer in Nairn and emigrated to Ohio, John Dallas and sister Margaret to America, other siblings remained in Scotland. Many thanks for any information.
