Is anyone out there researching the FRASER family, from Ardclach (?) in Nairnshire.
I'm interested in a MARGARET FRASER of that family (born about 1812) who married an ARCHIBALD FORSYTH, probably before 1837ish.
Any info would help...............

I don't know if there is a connection, but I am researching John FRASER m. Janet MACPHAILE on 26 October 1746 in Nairn. She was from Nairn parish, he from Dyke, Moray. They had at least following children: Janet FRASER, b. 1749 in Ardclach Parish; William FRASER, b. 1751 in Achnatone, Ardclach Parish; John FRASER, b. 1753 in Achnatone, Ardclach Parish; and Isabel FRASER, b. 1756 in Archatone, Ardclach Parish. John FRASER was apparently a weaver. I believe Janet MACPHAILE was a sister of Mary MACPHAILE who married John DAVIDSON and lived in the nearby Fleenes area.
