Macdonald, Mary (MacDougall)


b Ardtun, Isle of Mull, Argyllshire 1789, d Ardtun 1872. Her whole life was spent on the Scottish W coast island of Mull. As a crofter’s wife who saw troubles enough over the years, she would compose and sing her Gaelic songs while sitting at the spinning wheel, which may have given a sense of rhythm comparable to Wesley’s horseback rides. She belonged to the local Baptist ch, where her brother became the first Baptist minister on the island. No.370.
