Would you happen to have any connection to the McQuarries ??? As there's
a reference in Jo's MIP (Mull Island People pg 430) about a Lachlan
McQuarrie the 16th of Ulva who has a son Lachlan who marries a Louisa
Wilkins. So one never knows you might want to dig a bit deeper into the
Dr Wilkins line.

That's how I ended up with Smith Anderson MacFarlane and Helen Sutherland MacFarlane as uncle and aunt respectively. I believe my grandmother Annie Wilkins MacCallum got her middle name that way also as I can find no Wilkins connection to explain her middle name. There was a Dr. Wilkins in Pictou town at that time though.
