Christina MacDonald

Christina MacDonald, born 1823, married widower Angus MacAskill of 19 Kyles Scalpay. Together they were to have two daughters. They decided to emigrate, leaving Campbeltown on HMS Hercules on 26th December 1852. During an eventful journey, Christina died at sea, four days before the ship’s arrival at Port Adelaide, Australia. It is probable that her death was of smallpox or typhus, which killed a total of 38 passengers.
