My maiden name was MacDonald. During WW2, my uncle stayed with a cousin, (not sure whether a 1st or 2nd etc), near Shawbost.
In 1989 I made a trip to the Isle of Lewis and managed to find the elderly cousin, Christina Mitchell, in north Shawbost, (close to 24 North Shawbost Rd). Unfortunately her memory was not 100% so answers were not 100% clear, but she did remember my uncle and I was able to take some photos of old photos she had.
I seem to remember that she was married but widowed in a very short time, but it was a very brief visit and quite a few years ago now. I lost contact with her after the trip and am uncertain when she passed away.
If any of this seems to ring a bell, I would love to hear from you.
My Great Grandfather was Donald MacDonald married to Maggie McIsaac.
Sincerely, Judy Chaffin
