Do you have the name of Archibald's widow & children?

I'm looking for Isabella MacEachern born 1796 in Scotland.

Isabella married Neil MacDonald in Judique in the early 1820's. With certainty, their son Neil was born in 1823 at Judique.

Neil's family came in the 1790's & were in Judique by 1802.

My MacDonalds were located at Porta Phata, Loch Moidart.

Knowing the MacDonald family first names, I believe the name Neil came from within Issabela's family. Are there Neil's within your MacEachern's?

The name Neil is a common name on the Hebridean islands adjacent to Moidart on the mainland but still part of the Clan Ranald estates. Neil as a name on the mainland is a rarity.

These MacDonalds & MacEacherns were Catholic highlanders.

Perhaps you have some insight to share.
