Esmeralda Rupp-Spangle asked Diana Gabaldon:

Hi Diana! I have a head scratcher that only you can answer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Mackenzie_%28explorer%29 Alexander Mackenzie, who lived in the 17-1800s, happened to travel with a Mr. Beauchamp, and who made camp at a Fraser river. A remarkable coincidence? or, more likely, you being a historian by trade, a reference to a noteworthy quest?

Diana Gabaldon No, that's just a coincidence. Fwiw, Fraser and MacKenzie are both _really_ common Scottish last names. Beauchamp...not so much.
