Mary MacKillop was born in 1817, the daughter of Donald MacKillop and his second wife Ann Ferguson of old Ruisgarry. She married Roderick MacAskill. Together they were to have nine children. They lived in Ruisgarry until about 1845. At that time the Ruisgarry crofts were reorganised and the family moved to Borve as cottars. When Borve became a farm in 1854, the family moved to Stornoway.
