Napier witnesses: Angus Paterson

Angus Paterson gave evidence at Breasclete on behalf of the people of Kirivick. We find him on the 1881 census, aged 54, living with his wife Mary (56). We can trace this couple back to 1861 - they do not appear to have had any children. Angus himself turns up in 1841 as a 15-year old in Tolstachaolais. He is staying with a family of Macaskills at the time.

Angus Paterson died on 15 May 1885 at the age of 58 "supposed to be asthma" - the death record is not too clear. He is survived by his wife Mary Mcgregor, who passed away in 1900 at the age of 75.
