John (Ian Mor) Macdonald (Macdonnell) of Ardnabi
'History of the Frasers' (Mackenzie, p617) identifies the wife of William Fraser of Guisachan as Margaret, dau of John Macdonell of Ardnabi by Mary ("a daughter of Glengarry"). 'History of the Macdonalds (Mackenzie, p489) shows a daughter of Alexander Macdonald of Keppoch as having, by a daughter of John Macdonell of Glengarry, a daughter who married Macdonald of Ardnabi. We presume to suggest the following connection.
