Donald (1802-1863) was the son of Evander Maciver and Mary Macleod. The family were probably living as sub-tenants in Old South Tolsta Tack at the time of his birth, however the earliest records available are for 1820, so nothing before that is certain.
Donald married Margaret Smith and it is not certain but likely that the couple settled on Old South Tolsta Tack and had their first two children.
In 1830, during the croft lottings, his parents obtained of 21 Old South Tolsta. Donald and Margaret settled at 21 Old South Tolsta and had their final four children. In total they had six children: five girls and a boy.
In 1851, during the croft relottings, the family obtained 23 North Tolsta.
In due course 23 North Tolsta passed to the couple's son-in-law Murdo Macdonald.
