I am slowly piecing together a specific McKercher or McKerracher family from Perthshire Scotland and would like input from anyone else who had ancestors in same area. Some of the place names are Monzie, Fowlis Wester, Crieff, Findo Gask, Gilmerton, Castleton.
So far I have (four) children in this family and no doubt more...I will add on the grandchildren and great grandchildren as I go along.
Parents are John McKerracher and wife Grace or Grisel MENZIES, may have had their children at CRIEFF; they would have been born 1739-1749 time frame.
Known children (from death records):
Margaret McKerracher born 1771-1776 at CRIEFF, died Nov. 11, 1869 at Clathy, Findo Gask, Perthshire; was the wife of Peter Haggart, eight known children so far.
Mary McKerracher born about 1777, died Dec. 6, 1862 at Gilmerton, Fowlis Wester; was the widow of NIAL McLEAN- anyone have any info on NIAL or know if he and Mary had children?
POSSIBLY and LIKELY...Duncan McKerracher born 1778-1785, died before 1841, married to Helen DOUGLAS, eight known children, one daughter married Peter Menzies (son of James Menzies and Margaret STEWART) and moved to Ontario, Canada
John McKerracher born 1782, died Dec. 7, 1866 at Castleton, Fowlis Wester, was married to Helen MARSHALL, I haven't done any work on their children yet.
Anyone with any info on this McKerracher family please post here or contact me directly.
