Copies of birth, marriage and death certificates for Rev. Donald MacCallum, Craignish, minister at Heylipol 1887-1889, and his wife Mary MacCallum (nee MacAulay, Ardnamurchan).
“Donald’s wife, Mary, had a twin brother, also a Donald; Mary’s age on the marriage certificate was misrecorded as 19 – she was only 18; Mary was not at Donald’s house on the night of the 1901 census – she may already have been sick and staying with her parents, since by this time, her father was a Physician and Surgeon; Mary died at the age of 26 on 8 October 1902, in Castlebay where she was staying with her parents – her Dad was the Medical Officer on Barra. She died of rheumatism and pericarditis – not of a pregnancy-related cause as one would have expected with someone her age; Donald died in Duirinish where he was living with his nephew, Tom Shields. Donald and Mary had no children. Donald was born on 9 October 1849 in Craignish.” Colin MacCallum, 2017
