In Reply to: William Mcleod and Janet Mackay b. early 1800s Halkirk, Caithness,Scotland by Denise Taylor of 66366

Janet Mackay, d 1884, Thurso, age 84. Her parents were William Mackay and Elizabeth McLeod. - www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

William Mackay is more probematical, since he would appear to have died 1851 - 1854, so no death recorded.

There are 2 possible births in Halkirk
1799 and 1800
John Mcleod and Janet Williamson
William Mcleod and Elizabeth Mackay

Unfortunately both births were in Harpsdale, Halkirk, where William was when he married Janet Mcleod!

My money would be on Elizabeth Mackay as his mother, but . . .
Send me a PM if you'd like a copy of the certificates.
