      Could 103, Calum an t-saighdear, be “Kelly” the son of Catriona ‘ain Dhuibh who was married to a man from Uist and so the surname would be neither Maciver or Buchanan? They lived in a small house attached to the Mission House in Valtos before going to Vancouver.
      Would his name be in the school register? I am sure Flora McBain, Point supplied the names of all the ‘unknowns’ when the photograph appeared in the Sty Gaz several years ago.

      There are a few gaps in Flora’s list – she only gives Calum an t-Saighdear and I think it was Joan who proposed Maciver/Buchanan. Will check the register though…

      Has anyone asked Calum D Macneill, Carishader? I recall that he could name most of them.

      Does anyone here remember my father: Macmod of Clibh?

      I don’t remember meeting him personally but I knew your grandparents and his brother, Calum Kenny, and several local people would know him.
