Researching the family background of Diana McARTHUR who was born in 1789. Her birth was registered in Edinburgh Parish. She married in 1820 and moved with her husband -- Ralph REED, originally of Northumberland -- to Sutherland.

I believe Diana's parents were John McARTHUR and Katharine McQUEEN of Edinburgh. According to the IGI, John and Katharine had the following children:

-- Archibald McARTHUR b. 1779
-- Neil McARTHUR b. 1782
-- Donald McCARTER [sic] b. 1784
-- John McCARTER [sic] b. 1785
-- Anne McARTHUR b. 1787
-- Diana McARTUR [sic] b. 1789

Neil likely married Janet FERGUSON in Edinburgh in 1811. I don't know what happened to Diana's sister and other brothers.

Is anyone else researching these names?
