Isabel Munro
17?? - bef. 1840

Isabel Munro was Calum's and Jamie's five times great grandmother.

It is not yet known when or where Isabel was born, but as her first son James was born in Kiltearn, Ross and Cromarty, this would seem to be a strong possibility. 

Isabel married Donald
MacGillivray on 5th September 1796, in Inverness, Scotland. T
he couple had at least three sons, although the dates of their birth cover such a vast period that it can only be assumed that there were several other children. The first of the known children, and the oldest, was James, born in Kiltearn in Ross and Cromarty, in October 1797, with Donald noted as the father and as a servant to a Mr Barclay of Balcony.

Isabel undoubtedly returned to Inverness when her husband left the militia, but it is unclear what became of her after this, except that she must have died prior to 1840, when her husband remarried to Margaret Fraser.
