Lt John MacDonald KSLI

Note applies for medals from hospital in Dublin

I cannot connect him to Kinlochmoidart in a census. There are too many John's born in 1886 in Inverness, about 25

1883 Nov 30. His parents married at Ardchattan, Argyll

1886 Jul 18 Born Inverness-shire. Son of John MacDonald and Mary MacVarish at Kinlochmoidart. (Ancestry Tree, which has his and his sibblings exact dobs, plus parents wedding date which is also correct)

1901 census with his uncle at Acharacle. He was born Moidart and is a farm labourer
