Angus McDonald married Betty Urquhart, and then Isobel McKay. Three sons and one daughter - Hugh, Hector, Elizabeth married Donald Gunn,and William.
Robert Gordon married Barbara MacKay. At least 2 daughters, Barbara Gordon married George Gunn and lived Camster, Caithness. Daughter Barbara Gordon immigrated with her niece (Barbara Gunn married to Alexander McIntosh, son of George McIntosh and Maragaret Sutherland of Tongue - see above)
John Gunn married Janet Murray in Glasgow. Later moved to Melvick (maybe back to Melvick) Daughter Flora married John McKay of Sandside, Reay, Sutherlandshire

I haven't begun to sort the McKays in these families. I don't know if it is possible. I do have information on all the above families but always looking to make more connections.
