Surnames: MacFarlane, MacLeod
I recently traced my great grandfather Murdoch (Murdo) MacFarlane, back to the Isle of Lewis. He was born Sept.9,1829 at Gearrraghuirn, Stornaway, Isle of Lewis. Son of John MacFarlane born about 1795 at Tolsta/Borve Isle of Lewis. I beleive he married Christina MacLeod born 1839? on the Isle of Lewis, died 1898? Tiverton,Kincardine, Bruce County Ontario.Married Murdoch MacFarlaneJanuary 24, 1854 at Guelph, Wellington District, Ontario.
I am trying to verify Christine's family backround and would appreciate any information in this regard.
Thank you.

Surnames: Lawson, MacLeod, Murray
I see both of these families in Bill Lawson's book. Murdo did marry Kirsty MacLeod. She was the daughter of Murdo MacLeod (son of Donald) b. 1801 at Mid Borve. His wife was Ann Murray (daughter of Allan) b. 1806 at North Galson.
Murdo and his family emigrated from Mid Borve in 1851 and settled in Huron Township Bruce County.
There ia additional info available in the book--if you would like scans or copies, email me at smithd@vaniercollege.qc.ca Cheers!
