76226: Archie Munro

Archie was born in 1867, the eldest child of Alexander Munro and Christina MacAskill of 20 Ruisgarry (Brusda). He remained unmarried, dying of gastric fever aged just 20.

Oral tradition tells of the outbreak of fever in Brusda, which resulted in Archie’s death and also that of his maternal grandmother. A recording of the tale is available here on the Tobar an Dualchais website. However, although it refers to 9 deaths, only two deaths from gastric fever appear in the register for the island.
