Mary Murray

Mary Murray

Mary (1908-1984) was the daughter of John Murray and Mary Maciver, of 30 North Tolsta.

On the 16th of March 1921, during the Great Gale, the chimney stack was brought down by a large piece of corrugated roofing, which had been torn from the Free Presbyterian Church, during a gale. None of the family were hurt, but large pieces of stone crashed through the thatched roof.

Mary married Angus Cameron, of Poolewe, and the couple settled in Poolewe. They had a family of five daughters, one of whom emigrated to Canada and one of whom, Kenina (Kenna) married a man from Tolsta as her second husband, and one son, John, who died in 1975 aged 43, by choking on a fishbone, leaving a widow (who re-married) and two daughters.
