A Rev George R Kennedy was the officiating minister at Embo Dornoch for a marriage in a distant part of my family tree, of Isabella Sutherland to James McKay in 1863. Was it the minister in this photograph?

Yes, it should be, the Rev G R Kennedy was Minister of the Free Chruch in Dornoch about that time. See also image 2007_243 for a younger portrait of the Rev Kennedy - Administrator

I made an error with the date of the marriage I mentioned, It was not 1863 but 1867. Sorry about that.

Tibbie Fenelon was not his grand daughter - she was the grand daughter of Rev Thomas Mackay, a great friend of Rev George Kennedy, who named his son (Tibbie's father) after Rev George Kennedy. Her father was George Kennedy Mackay.

Many thanks for your comment clarifying the relationship between your Mother and the Rev Kennedy - Administrator
