Duncan Macdonald was a Kelp Maker in Orinsay.
His son Alexander’s family were Cleared from there in 1843 and settled in Steinish.
Here I show the families of their children down to my grandfather’s generation.
It is worth noting that, had the Clearance not occured, then none of the people in the final two columns would have been born! The shading of Annie Kerr and William Maciver indicates that they were cousins.
