[1] Old Parish record of Balquhidder Births 331 page 74 of 370. April 19 1741. Rannald M'Gregor in Kirktoun & Janet M'Gregor his wife had a child baptised, John?. The OPR is badly smudged. It has been recorded by various editors as John, but from the Ward tree he is probably Gregor, alias James Graham. b 1741. d 1799 at Greenock. Went to sea. Became a ship's captain in the West Indian trade. m Miss Mary Hamilton, `said to be a grand-daur of the Duke of Hamilton, but this supposition is not proved' - Dick tree.

[2] Old Parish record of Balquhidder Births 331 page 95 of 370. August 8 1747. Ranald Drummond & Janet Graham in Kirktoun had a child baptised called Mary.

[3] Old Parish record of Balquhidder Births 331 page 106 of 370. January 29 1750. Ranald Drummond & Janet M'Grigor his wife in Kirktoun had a child baptised by Mr Coulchard (?) called Donald

[4] Old Parish record of Balquhidder Births 331 page 128 of 370. November 19 1755. Ranald Drummond & Janet Graham in Kirktoun had a son baptised called James

[5] Old Parish record of Balquhidder Births 331 page 143 of 370. May 16 1755. Ranald Drummond & Janet Graham in Kirktoun had a child baptised called Catherine

[6] Old Parish record of Balquhidder Births 331 page 151 of 370. July 15 1761. Ranald Drummond & Janet M'Grigor in Kirktoun had a son baptised & called Malcolm

[7] Old Parish record of Greenock Old or West, 564/003 0020 0285 Births. February 8 1784. Gregor son to Gregor McGregor, merchant, and Mary Hamilton his spouse. Born 8th, baptised 13th February.

[8] MacPharrie might have been the same Duncan Drummond or MacGregor in Strathyre who had been involved with Rob Roy's sons in the kidnapping in December 1750 of Jean Key as a wife for Robin Oig, for which Robin was hanged in 1754. James Mor excaped from prison into exile in France, where he died, while Duncan was acquitted. His involvement could be the reason for Walter Scott mistakenly claiming that Rob Roy had a son named Duncan. He was probably the same Duncan who was married to Kate, a daughter of Coll and granddaughter of Rob Roy some time after the '45.
