Cathy your message is ten years old so not sure if you are still out there somewhere.
Any chance your William Black and Margaret McLean had a son Hector McLean?
I am looking for a McLean woman, who was a sister to Hector McLean born about 1756 who died 1820 in Aberdeen. Hector mentioned his nephew Hector Black in his will, whose father was William Black. I am hoping to be able to identify the parents of Hector McLean and names of his siblings.
Hector McLean's death notice:
"Captain Hector McLean, late of the REAY Highlanders and formerly Quarter Master of the 42nd Regiment of Foot, and afterwards Adjutant of the Fifth Regiment of the Aberdeenshire Local Militia, died at Aberdeen upon the 22nd day of October 1820."
Anyone with info please post here or contact me directly.
