Marriage of Angus and Mary Cameron not found as yet.

Ewen Cameron married 28th February 1811 Kilmalie to Mary Colquhoun
1811 marriage

Mary's death cert , Blue ridge Otago NZ, in 1873 gave her age as 85
ie born 1788, which would make her 48 in 1836 when her last child Catherine was born
and 23 when she married.

The Blenhiem list which gave her age in 1840 as 46 which whould make her 17 when married
and fits with igi entry of birth 1793.

Best IGI fit seems to be
Mary born 12 sep 1793 at Ardchattan, Argyl (a small hamlett to the east of Oban)
Angus Colquhoun and Mary Cunningham
