    Ref: "The Munro Tree (1734)" by R. W. Munro - M/84 & M/85

    Ref: "The Munro Tree (1734)" by R. W. Munro - M/84

    "Alexr. of Killichoan married Janet daughter to Mr John McGilligin of Alnes by whom he had John David Robert Christane Janet and Margaret."

    Ref: "The Munro Tree (1734)" by R. W. Munro - M/85

    "John of Killichoan married Margaret daughter to Mr. William McBeath next Margaret daughter to Kenneth McKenzie in Inchvannie and has /blank/."

    "John of Killichoan d Mch 1769 (D J Gordon's MS notes) and family included 2 drs by first marriage and by second son George of Killichoan d 1778 (ib)."

    John was an elder in the Church of Kiltearn and a Justice of the Peace for the county of Ross.

    Ref 1 differs from "The Munro Tree" in the identity of John's children. "The Munro Tree" says he had two daughters by his first wife, and one son by his second. Ref 1 says he had one son by his first wife, and no children by his second. All the children mentioned in both references have been included here, but there may be errors.
