There was a huge emigration of Highland Scots at that time and Colin E Mackenzie prospered and became a man of substance. It did not last, however as in his latter years he fell foul of the Yankees at the time of the American Cival War and had to flee with not a great deal to show for it all. He was not entirely broke however as he was able to set up in business back in his birth place of Stornoway along with his much younger wife Jane Cook (b.1830 d.14 Sept 1910) and they reared four children. They married in 1856 and Jane Cook, Grand Aunt Bella’s mother, was the daughter of a promiment and wealthy shipbuilder in Inverness by the name of John Cook. He was in fact a Freeman of that ancient and Royal Burgh and I have his burgess ticket which entitles him inter alia to “haunt the burgh”.
Colin Edward Mackenzie (christened Colin Mackenzie and he added the “Edward” later) was the son of Murdo Mackenzie, son of Colin Mackenzie of Stornoway.
