[1] Old Parish record of Balquhidder Births 331 page 128 of 370. November 19 1755. Ranald Drummond & Janet Graham in Kirktoun had a son baptised called James

[2] Balquhidder OPR, 18 May 1782 James McGregor married Mary Ferguson
Rusgachan is in Strathyre near the mouth of Balquhidder glen.
Only Jean (b.20/10/1793) is in the OPR. None of the others are recorded.
The following children are taken from the Ward tree. I don't know where the precise birth dates came from for the others.
Janet b. 13/6/1783 in Rusgachan
Duncan b.13/4/1785 in Rusgachan
Donald b.30/8/1787 in Rusgachan
Catherine b.24/10/1790 in Rusgachan ?
Jean b.20/10/1793 in Rusgachan
James Ferguson b. Luss 1788 d.Luss 1850
Elizabeth b. 1/3/1801 at Immerloch of Strathyre

[3] The following descent is taken from the Ward tree.

[4] Donald & Elizabeth Srewart had Robert, b ~1821. .Fifth of six children recorded in OPR
The birth of a Robert is recorded in Muirkirk, Ayrshire on 31/7/1819. the later engineer at Dalmellington in '51 census born in Muirkirk,.
aged 31 so born between April 1819 and April 1820

[5] From '61 census Robert & Katherine MacKenzie had Elizabeth in 1850, John in 1852, Mary in 1854 and Robert in 1856. Robert is in statutory records, earlier children not in OPR so Free Church?, .

[6] The only marriage in the OPR between 1800 & 1805 for Donald and Elizabeth Stewart is at Port of Menteith, 20km south of Rusgachan in Balquhidder, so credible.

[7] Children of Donald MacGregor and Elizabeth Stewart in Muirkirk, Ayrshire:
Duncan 22/9/1805
Catherine 5/5/1807
Peter 15/9/1810 - unm. Blacksmith, residing with brother Robert at Dalmellington, 1851
