The parents of Robert Allanach (b May 1791) who married Mary Hay were John Allanach and Sophia McHardy; not Duncan Allanach and Sophia Glass

Editors Note
From Glen Nochty Web site
"Robert Allanach c 3 March 1789 Aldahuie allegedly m 1815 Mary Hay Glenbucket (see Doug Hay's website)
but death certificate shows parents of Robert who died 6 March 1856 in Glenbucket aged 65 as John Allanach and Sophia Mchardy"

Many thanks for these cracking photos and transcriptions, a wonderful resource for family historians, especially those unable to visit in person.

Robert Allanach and Mary Hay are my 4 X Great Grandparents, with the above mentioned Jane Allanach Douglas being my paternal Grandmother; she was actually born in 1913, not 1910 as stated above.

I have Robert Allanach's death certificate, where the informant was his son Alexander. The relevant detail given is as follows: Crofter, Married. Date & Place of death: 1856 March 6th - Upperton, Glenbucket, Aberdeenshire. Age 65 (which fits in with his birth year of 1791, rather than the Duncan Allanach/Sophie Glass Robert's birth year of 1789). Parents: John Allanach, Crofter (deceased) and Sophia Allanach, M.S. McHardy (deceased) Informant: Alexander Allanach, Son, Present, Upperton, Glenbucket.

It's a shame that this family (my family) have been slotted into an incorrect family based on incorrect, tenuous, unsourced information published online when the correct sourced information is so easily found as there are now undoubtedly a good few trees out there with an entire unconnected branch.
