Subject: re Fionnphort
> Hello Listers,
> Can anyone tell me the official name of the small
graveyard at Fionnphort. My great grandfather Donald McGilvra and my aunt
Colina MacGilvray are buried there. I am also looking for a family
connection between my McGilvrays and the two McKechnie brothers who were the
Iona - Fionnphort ferrymen up until 1965.
Bill (new lister).
I have vague information from an elderly relative who told me that 2
brothers in our family ran the boats from Mull to Staffa in the early
1960's. I am searching for these 2 brothers in my McDonald and
McKechnie(McEachern) families in Mull. Could these be the same brothers that
you are looking for? I think that the same boats may have gone to Iona and
Staffa from Mull.
