big thank you to Eburden for her message:

George Mcrae was the son of Roderick and Catherine Leslie Mcrae both born and died Rogart in Sutherlandshire Scotland
Thank you for your notes which I will add to the book I am reading called Gone For Good.
I just picked it up in Kerkeri Northland New Zealand on my Spring holiday
All about the branch that moved to Ireland and the back to Scotland and finally nelson in New Zealand
not my family but interested in genealogy and some of my family came to nelson so I hoped to get more of a picture of the time and place
Little printed tree in the back and some photos.
I could copy the tree if you don't have the book
if you live in nz I could send the book after I have read it as it was only a holiday read. it cost me eight dollars nz so that plus postage would be fine. otherwise I will pop it into the genealogy library if they don't have a copy

thank you Eburden for your kind offer, I am adding your message here in case a descendant would like the book. Maybe you are prepared to hang on to it for a little while in case someone reading this posting would like to have it

If you would like this book please leave a comment below and I will put you in touch with each other

ps - Eburden mentions that in the book it mentions 'the other George McRae' who was already in New Zealand and met them with his family in Nelson on their arrival so they are definitely related

George McRae and his family are the subject of a family history book published by Catherine Holst in 1964 and titled "From Red River to Blairich". It may be difficult to source, but it should be possible to interloan a copy through your local library.
