Looking for the parents of my GGGG-Grandfather, Donald McGregor.He was born in 1808, place unknown. One possible shows up, son of Alpine and Agnes (nee Walker) McGregor in Dunbarton.
For Alpine I find two marriages to Anne Walker listed in 1804,one in Arrochar and the other in Luss Parish. Seems they registered in both his and her parishes, 7 days apart. Was this common to hold 2 weddings?
Did they make a mistake on the birth record? Was her name really Ann or Agnes?
Anyone know anything of the family? Thanks.
