William MacDonald

William was born in 1823, the son of John MacDonald and Catherine MacQueen of old Ruisgarry. William became a farmer and married Marion MacLean, also of old Ruisgarry.

William obtained 15 Ruisgarry (Trealigarry) in the 1850 relotting, and there he and Marion made their home. However, in 1864 he lost the croft which was passed to Alexander MacLeod.
