Based on info I had Neil remarried after Catherine died and had one son named Alasdair by his second wife Mary McKinnon, he was born in 1798. This Alasdair was my 3x great grandfather. He and Allan and Angus emigrated to Cape Breton in the 1820's.

Just tidbits to offer you. You probably have this already but a Neil McKechnie (my spelling for McEachern) married a female McQuarrie Feb 27 1781 in KLN M115442, 0343 I presume this was Catherine McQuarrie as they have the following children listed in the OPR's for Ulva (Ormaig)Janet Jan 1782Allan Oct 1788Marion/Sarah Feb 6 1791Ann Mar 11 1792 I'd be interested to know of other children born to this couple and which ones emigrated.
