Andrew Gillies and Ann Gillies [nee MacEachen] emigrated to South Australia in 1852 with seven children. They were living at Back of Keppoch in 1841 and 1851 [according to census records].
One of their sons was Ewen Gillies b 1841. I am a direct descendant of Hugh [as he was known in 1851 census] who used the name Gillis in Australia.
I would like to learn of the ancestry of Andrew and Ann. I have no information about their respective parents or siblings. I do not know whether they were born in the area of Arisaig or came with their respective families from another region of the Highlands or Islands.
I would appreciate contact with anyone who has ancestral information related to either or both Andrew & Ann.
