This information is taken from "A Register of Emigrant Families from the Western Isles of Scotland to the Eastern Townships of Quebec", written by Bill Lawson who is the leading authority in Lewis regarding these Scottish emigrants. In his book, your Murrays are Q129. You can see that the children of John married other Scottish immigrants from the same place (Isle of Lewis). The names of spouses are followed by their "Q" number and are listed in the book. My families came from the same place during the same years, but settled in Bruce County Ontario. I have gathered quite a few books etc and will gladly scan the pages concerning your Murrays and email them if you are interested. Dave
