Mary Kennedy (Mairi Dhòmhnaill Mhòir; 1858-1940) was born in Balevullin to Donald Kennedy and Catherine Gillies. The ruins of the house are beside ‘Braeside’, Balevullin. Mary was one of six siblings: John (1851-1907), Alexander (1853 – 1936), Mary (1858 – 1940), Archibald (1860 – ), Charles (1863- 1868) and Catherine (1866 – 1948). Mary had one son, Donald Archie Kennedy, a sea captain in the Merchant Navy, who built a house in Cornaigmore (R Doncaster’s). Mary lived there from 1925 until her death in 1940, latterly with her daughter-in-law, Agnes Livingston, and her two children, Mary and Colin, who returned from Canada in 1932.
