Donald Murdoch McCormick was also a Schoolmaster.

A large and fine standing stone, which stood above the ancient ferry to Iona, was called "An Caitcheannach Mor" - "the great stone of the common", the neighbouring land being called "The Common" (Catchean). It was destroyed in 1863 through a great granite block falling on it from quarrying operations in the neighbourhood. Traditionally it, and other members of a series of standing stones, marked the route taken by pilgrims going across Mull to Iona from Grass Point.

1849 ..........

Catharine McCormick married John McCowan on Aug 21, 1849

1850 ..........

A. McInnes, from Creich said that in the 1850s there was a 100% increase in rent where pasture was improved (as it had to be, since tenants who remained were forced to develop areas like Creich on the north side of the Ross - the more fertile south side was evacuated). No compensation was given for houses vacated, and when permission was given for new houses to be built, only "a kailyard' of land was given. It was ruled that if a man died, and his widow had a son less than 21 years old, she must vacate, a rule "sometimes enforced, sometimes not."

"In the year 1850, the old townships were reduced to large farms," said J. M'Cormick [ Catherine's brother ] from Catchean croft, and continued, "The harsh and cruel law of evictions formerly used has now given way to the more modern and refined mode of grinding away our subject by diminishing our means, which will eventually serve the purpose of bringing us into abject poverty." - from the Napier Commission - John McCormick's Statements

1891 ..........

During the 1890s it was decided by the church on Iona that a Mission Chapel should be built at Creich in the Ross of Mull and dedicated to St Erana.   Ernan, formerly Prince of Donegal, was uncle to St Columba and one of a group of twelve followers who came with Columba to Iona to set up and manage the Iona Monastery. Through the efforts of the then parish minister, the Rev. Archibald MacMillan (his gravestone is in the church yard), money was raised to build the church.   Plans of the church were approved by Presbytery in 1897 and a site chosen to benefit the community. - From Creich, St. Ernan's Church, Mull Historical Society
