MacDougall/Pirie of Colonsay

Posted by:

Peter MacDougall married Mary Pirie on 28th March 1780 in Colonsay and their son, Archibald MacDougall was born 14 January 1787, in Colonsay; he died 28 April 1860 in Port Ellen.  He had married  Mary McEwen of North Knapdale (1785 – 1847) apparently in 1803, at the surprisingly early age of 16 years if correct. The Pirie name can be seen on gravestones in Oransay, although the name is not well known today.
Their descendant, Alastair H. MacDougall, will be visiting Colonsay in September or so, and would be delighted to meet anyone connected with this family, by descent or otherwise.
