Narrative

Marion was living in 1819, when she was named in Peter's will, but was not in Duncan's household in the 1861 census.

Some family trees say she was the "More McKay" who also travelled to Prince Edward Island on the Edinburgh in 1771. More/Mor is a Gaelic name that is often translated as the English Marion. (see, for instance, Emigrants on the Edinburgh, 1771, in the Island magazine)

Other sources say that the root of the name was Avora, written in Scotland as Marion, Morag, or Sarah, Sadie, or Sally in English records.
