Arlene sent me this photo (R) a few days ago. Erbusaig is where my 2nd great grandfather, Donald Matheson (abt 1794-1859) was most likely born and most definitely died.
|Scotland's People, Death registration of Donald Matheson|
I wrote about my ancient Mathesons here after I found reference to them made on page 109 in the History of the Mathesons.
Donald's father, my 3rd great grandfather, Dugald Beag Matheson, also a mason, like his son, was still living at Erbusaig at the time of the 1851 census, aged 76, with his son William and his family. I haven't been able to find his death record. Yet.
The never ending story continues....
