Hi Davie

Yes this is the same people. Their son Donald is in a line down to my wife. However I do not have much on Margaret Milne's ancestors. I believe thathHer father could have been William and mother Katherine but have little detail.
I have been in touch with a lady in Australia, via the Caithness Family Heritage Group, who has all the Shearer information.

Thanks for your info
