Re: MacKenzies of Assynt
I noticed the mention of Annabella Watson in your post:
I have a Margaret McKenzie born about 1841, who married James Smith c.1842 in Aberdeen. They lived at Woodside.
One of their daughters was ANABELLA WATSON SMITH b. 1874.
All the children were: Catherine c.1864, Alexander c.1868, Anabella 1874, William 1875 and Jane 1886.
Think there's a link?
All the best,
