The name "Coinneach" is the Gaelic version of the Kenneth (an Anglicized spelling), they are the same name. I would guess that "Kenneth" went by "Coinneach" when he was in Gairloch, a largely Gaelic-speaking area of Scotland at that time, and/or he used Coinneach as a nickname while in that area. Hope that clarifies.
You can find scanned copies of original official baptism/birth/marriage/death records (and census and other records) from historical periods in scotland by going to http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/ which is maintained by the government from documents housed in Edinburgh. It's a tremendous resource, and I would think it would be your next stop after collecting whatever information you have from living relatives or others you know that have already done some research. There are fees (it's run by a government bureaucracy, after all), but they are nominal.
For the rest, I'm afraid the names you've listed don't match what I have from the old newsletters; that Gairloch family goes back in the Gairloch area to the mid-1700s, although it's certainly possible that they were cousins of the Donald and Isabella you mentioned in your post.
I certainly wish you good luck in your search! And again, if you have the opportunity to encourage one of your living male Urquhart relatives to try the DNA testing service at ftdna.com, please do!
