Thanks for this posting. I'm catching up with the Mull postings after
our harvest. As I have one lone Neil McPhail living with my Hugh
McArthur in KLF parish. I'm interested in McPhails as well.
I see in the IGI that Malcolm McPhail marries Catherine Black Dec 25
1827 Torosay M115504, 0090
So this Malcolm McPhail 1790-1879 found in Moy in 1841 Kinloch, 1851
census Ardura House Kinloch, and 1861 at Oskamull is probably them ?
In the IGI the children I found from the 1851 census llisting which ists
only Malcolm as the parent.
in 1841 at Moy I see a couple of Black children living with Malcolm and
Catherine maybe her siblings???
Moy McPhail Malcolm 45 Farmer
Moy McPhail Cathrin 25
Moy McPhail Donald 8 1851 census list him as David
Moy McPhail Hugh 3
