I found this a whie back looking through the internet to see what information I could find
The Mythology, Traditions and History of MacDhubhsith --- MacDuffie Clan (McAfie, McDuffie, MacFie, MacPhee, Duffy, etc.)
Volume 4 New Lands of Our Fathers - Pioneers Part 2
Page 24 (at the top)
Mrs. Mason, a daughter of A.R. MacGregor, a great grand daughter of Rev. George and Elizabeth Hutcheson and a great great grand daughter of Alexader 'who was found in the reeds on Little Colonsay' and who married the Argyllshire beauty, Mary Sinclair. Another way of identifying her in the family of the Macfies is that she is the grand daughter of Mary Sinclair Macfie who married Wm. Poole. Eve Mason is responsible for my correspondence with another reative, Dr Chartfield, a grandson of "Aunt Mary Poole".
I was wondering was Rev. George Macfie father Alexader Macfie, was adopted?? Because of the notation 'who was found in the reeds on Little Colonsay'
If anyone has an answer to this it would be great.
I will have the information for part of the Australian line up in a couple of days in not sooner.
