Charles McLean

Hello Again

I am still seeking information about descendants of Charles McLean born c 1825 in Ireland (don't know where) and his wife Flora McConachy of Killean whose family (father Archibald, mother More McLachlan) may have been from Gigha. Some of them are well known to me, but not all. Please post if you are a descendant of Charles or know anything. Thank you.

Hi, no info on Charles but I've been looking again at info you probably do have. I remember you once mentioned to me about Flora using the name Duncan.
Have you purchased this Statutory death record from Scotlandspeople. The MC is probably McConachy on the full record. It always amazes me the info that does appear on the actual death record.

I have seen death records for both Flora and Charles. Both were paupers in their old age, and died in Campbeltown. There may just possibly be something about them in the minutes of the poor relief board.

It seems likely that Flora MacConachy born in Killean was part of a family originating from Gigha.

I would very much like to find more information about Charles McLean's parents, Duncan and Betsy (McLachlan). They came from Ireland, but I do not know where. So far I have not tracked down their deaths, which may have been before proper records were kept. Both probably died between 1841-51 census, although absence from an early census is not conclusive evidence that someone had died.
