Hi Linda,
Maybe there is a link between your Isabella and my great grandmother. I know that there were Chalmers living in Inverness during this period[ a geologist and at least one clergyman], but I haven't been able to identify a direct link to her. Together, we might be able to solve these puzzles.
My g grandmother, Mary Chalmers was also born in Inverness in 1838. She married my g grandfather, Thomas George Stephens there. He was one of the engineers for the London, Mislands and Scottish RR and after they were married they moved on to Yorkshire. She passed on in 1926.
I don't know much else about her except that members of her family[including her] were all over 6 ft tall.
