I am searching for any information regarding Isabella Chalmers. She married James MacKenzie somtime before 1883, as they had a son James MacKenzie, Jr. who was born in 1883 in Inverness, Scotland.

I know nothing more about Isabella. Her son, as family lore goes, immigrated to Canada and then to the United States where he eventually settled in the Pittsburgh, PA area. There he married Ellen "Nellie" Mercer sometime after 1910. Nellie's parents were Jang (George) Mercer (b. 1865) and Ellen Walker (b. 1867). James MacKenzie, Jr. died in 1923 in McKees Rocks, PA.

Isabella Chalmers and James MacKenzie were my 2G grandparents. I would be interested in any information regarding this family.
