Trying to find Muir

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Donna Report 15 Sep 2004 19:45

Trying to find Thomas Muir b: about 1798 and Janet Baird b: about 1798 give or take 10 years. I have info on their children but I am trying to find info on Thomas whether he had siblings and who is parents were? I believe he was born in Sorn, Scotland married Janet in 1819. I know of the Muirs in Fauldhouse which are related as well, but any more info would be greatly appreciated. I am doing the Muir family tree for my family in Canada. Thank you, donna

i'm looking for muirs in fauldhouse. do you know of a Nora Muir born roughly around the 1900s. She married a John Scott and their grandchildren and great grandchildren still live in that area (Well bar me, my sister and mother.). I'm struggling so much and i think I also have family still living in Canada. One of their sons moved to canada in the 60's.

Does any of this ring a bell with you?

Many thanks

Hello Katy - did you notice the date on Donna's post? It was in 2004. She may not be an active member anymore.

You could try sending her a message by clicking on her name. If she has the same email address, GR will notify her that there is a message waiting for her on the site.

Fingers crossed!
