      MacLeods of Uilinish - who are descended from Roderick MacLeod, 5th sonof Donald MacLeod, 1st of the MacLeods of Greshornish, who was the 5thson of Sir Roderick Mor MacLeod, 15th Chief.

      Roderick, founder of the MacLeods of Uilinish, married Margaret MacLeod,daughter of John MacLeod, 2nd of the MacLeods of Talisker. One of theirchildren was named Margaret. According to "The MacLeods - The Genealogyof A Clan, Section Two", by Rev. Dr. Donald MacKinnon and Alick Morrison,this Margaret married (marriage contract dated 12th August 1727) JohnMacKinnon, son of John Dubh MacKinnon, 17th Chief of the MacKinnon's.They had a daughter named Florence (Flora) who married Ranald MacDonald,18th Captain of Clanranald, with issue: John Moidartach; James; Margaret;Mary and Penelope.

      Now the problem comes in - I believe you have that Ranald MacDonald, 18thof Clanranald married Flora MacKinnon, daughter of Ian Og MacKinnon andIsabella MacDonald, of Castleton, but the children's names andinformation pertaining to them are the same. I was wondering if you wouldmind sharing with me where you got this information? We are quiteconfused, and the only source we have is the Clan MacLeod, Section IIbook.

      Formerly shown here as in Burke's Landed Gentry under "Mackinnon ofMackinnon" which starts, for some reason with the 28th Chief. It showsthat Ian Og married Isabella daughter of Ian Macdonald of Castleton
      Also at Roddy Macdonald's web page it shows the Ranald MacDonald, 18thCaptain of Clanranald,
      shows her parents as
      Father: Iain Og MACKINNON
      Mother: Isabella MACDONALD of Castleton

      Now shown here as at
