Re: Geo. Sinclair and Henderson
No, you wouldn't be leading me off the trail! :) I just discovered that
information last night! And there's already a Gunn marriage in the
family... the next generation down George Sinclair married a Barbara
Gunn. As well, I'm fairly certain now this is the right marriage and
family... Christian Henderson appears to have been born 1760 (right
time) and the only relative given for her is an Angus McKay - so I'd say
McKay was probably her mother's name and somehow it's been dropped by
someone in recollecting who was married to who! The rest of the children
tie in very well too... and it certainly fits very well with the use of
Henderson as a middle name!
Thank you for the thought! :):)
