McMillan & McKay Marriage, 1815

The first couple, Evander and Flory are my husband’s 4th Great grandparents (6 generations) Their son John McMillan came to Australia before 1841, where he married my cousin. That is where my line converges with Rob’s.

Flory’s sister also married in 1815, and is shown down the page. Earlier this year, I discovered that my best girlfriend’s husband descends from Margaret McKay and John Grant – which makes him Rob’s 4th cousin, twice removed.
