Jocasta MacKenzie Cameron Innes was born in 1702 to Jacob MacKenzie and his wife Anne (nee Grant) she is their seventh child and fourth daughter. She grew up with her siblings in Caste Leoch and was very fond of them all. She was a very skilled artist (like her oldest sister, Ellen) before she went blind.
Jocasta first marriage was to John Cameron and together they had one daughter, Clementina Cameron (in 1718) before John died of the flux. Clementina had two children with her husband before he too died; recently before the Battle of Culloden. Clementina and her children later died after the Rising (after 1746).
After the death of her first husband Jocasta remarried to her second Cameron husband, Hugh Cameron (John's cousin) they to had only one daughter Seonag before he to died during hunting leaving Jocasta a widow again. Her second daughter went on to marry the Master of Garth and had one children. Her husband died during the Battle of Culloden and Seonag and her children died soon after.
Jocasta third marriage to a Cameron was to Hector mor Cameron and as in her previous to marriages they had one daughter Morna Cameron (in 1730). Both Hector and her brother, Dougal and a third man were involved in smuggling money for Charles Stuart from the King of France although it was to late to be used and they hid it in their home until the end of the Rising where Hector buried it in the woods and took some for the escape. Jocasta and her husband and youngest daughter fled to the coast after she could not convince her husband to go and help her two older children and their children (her grandchildren). But on the way to the coast they were stopped by the English and this resulted in Morna being accidentally shot by her father; after which Jocasta never forgave him for. The two then fled to the new world were they bought a plantation with the stolen money until his death from the flux.
Jocasta final marriage has to Duncan Innes in 1771. This marriage was to her nephew Jamie's close friend, to ensure that her plantation would be properly run. As a woman, she would need assistance with the estate, and a man would be useful with the British soldiers in the colonies. They were married in a lavish event in March after an unsuccessful attempt the year before.
