Janet Lindsay was a cousin of Angus and Donald Lindsay, not their sister. Janet (1821-1868) was the daughter of John Lindsay and Catherine Campbell, Donald (b.1817) and Angus (b.1819) were the sons of John Lindsay and Flory Darroch. John died in prison before he could be transported and Angus died onboard the Lady Montague a week before it arrived at Hobart.
Janet did have two brother named Angus (1823-1880) and Donald (b.1828). This Angus was my GGG Grandfather.
