Hi cousin,

Imagine finding you here. :)

Parents' names are on birth, marriage and death records. Since they married in 1846, her parents aren't likely in that record. So, her death record is the prime place to look.
I have that she died between Jan 1872 (birth of Robena) and 1895 (death of husband). Do you have reason to believe she died in 1872? Based on a search on scotlandspeople, it looks like she died in 1881, but you'd have to purchase the image to see if it is her.

My aunt's DNA match has Elizabeth Morrison McLean died 26 Jan 1881, and has parents for her in her private tree. Let me hook you up by email.

Just found your posts about my Elizabeth Morrison McLean on the Kintyre Forum. Should have looked earlier but been bogged down with helping a neighbour setup an Ancestry account. Anyway, I keep checking your tree for any additional information as well as looking into various forums relating to One Name Studies etc. I have also received contacts via the Ancestry DNA connections and cannot believe how much information I have gathered from them.

Thanks again for all your help.
