McDONALD & BAILLIE in Dornoch & Golspie

My current brick wall is Halket McDonald and Jane Baillie. The couple are recorded in both the Dornoch and Golspie Parish Records as being married 11 Dec 1830. Halket is listed as being from Skelbo Moor, Dornoch Parish and Jane is listed as being from Iron Hill/Kirkton, Golspie Parish. In 1831 they emigrated to Zorra Township, Oxford County, Upper Canada, as their first born, Angus, was born there. According to his headstone, Halket (called Hacket in Canada) died 10 Jul 1837 aged 36 years. My primary interest is in determining the parents and siblings of both Halket and Jane.
