- Born: 17 Apr 1827, Killean and Kilchenzie Parish, Argyll, Scotland
Another name for Barbra was McMILLAN, Katharine.
This was the first of two children whose births were listed as Katharine in the parish records. A birth was recorded, as the entry here notes, but not a baptism for this child. The sequence of names of the children born to this couple as they appear for the 1820s in the parish records is:
whereas in the 1841 census the sequence is;
Mary 20 years
Barbra 15 years
Catherine 12 years
It is quite possible that the first Katharine died and Barbra was born before the second Katharine, but no Barbara 's birth is listed to this couple. There are two Barbras listed in the births and baptisms of the parish of Killean and Kilchenzie in 1824 and 1833, but their mothers have different names although the father is a James McMillan.
