Hannah (sometime Hannay) family from Scotland
Alexander b. 1808 Whithorn and wife Mary had 9 children.
I am trying find out what happened to 3 of them.
Maybe someone can offer some ideas...

Stewart b. 1837 Glasserton (alive in 1861 census)
brother John b. 1839 in Whithorn (alive in 1861 census)
brother Alexander b. 1834 Whithorn is at his brother Andrew in 1861
and then Alexander is no longer found (census England)

I cannot get past 1861 for these 3 brothers...
Stewart is not in the death indexes for Scotland.
The parents both died in Wigtownshire
Thanks in advance for any replies...
