Ellen McDonald was married to James Robertson. The well-known Deacon Robertson, Churchville, was their son.
I am interested in confirming the birth date of James' wife, Ellen (Helen) MacDonald.
I tentatively have it listed as 1 Jul 1772 in Drumnadrochit, Inverness-shire.
Perhaps Ellen's year of birth is listed on the gravestone for James Robertson?
This family settled in Churchville, Pictou County, Nova Scotia.
Ellen (Helen) was a daughter of John MacDonald who settled at Bridgeville in 1784
I was sent a Robertson family genealogy chart by the Pictou County Roots Society but it contained no dates for Ellen. They had 11 children
I thought the following could have been James Robertson’s gravestone?, However, the Robertson chart I was sent for James showed his year of birth as 1761 and his year of death as 1835. There were no dates listed for his wife Ellen
James Robertson Aug. 18, 1835 in the 71 year of his age
