NOTE: County:
Qrytext: I found a reference to my family in "A. J. MacMillan, To the Hill of Boisdale Revised Edition, (Music Hill Publishers), 34." Mr. MacMillan refers to Iain Campbell as a 'disbanded soldier of Barra'. I know that Barra is an island off the coast of Scotland. This comment sounds as though it refers to a specific war, action or revolt. However, does anyone know what this reference is refering to? Any help will be appreciated. John
