Marion Bean McINNES, Parents CHARLES and MARGARET McINNES (MacDONALD). Scotland-Australia-New Zealand

I am seeking information about my gt-gt-grandmother, Marion Bean McINNES. According to her death certificate, Marion Macpherson (McInnes) died aged 82 on 9 November 1910 at Portobello, Dunedin, NZ. This would make her date of birth approximately 1828, place of birth believed to be Skye or Western Islands, Scotland.

Her father Charles McINNES was a Master Mariner. Her mother was Margaret McINNES formerly MacDONALD.

In 1853 Marion emigrated to Australia, giving birth to daughter Margaret while at sea.

After arriving in Adelaide, she married William MacPherson, also in 1853. In 1855 the family migrated again to Dunedin, New Zealand. William and Marion had at least 4 sons & 5 daughters - some of their names were Margaret, Janet, Isabella, Angus and Charles.

Any information gratefully received
With thanks
Jenny
