He is the Illigitemate son of a Sarah Campbell (domestic Servant) If you could find if she had any more children or who her parents were? She did marry but I don't know who to talking to old relatives she married and went to the Isle of Skye. Don't know if this is correct I couldn't find anything.

ANNE FROM SCOTLAND Hi Anne I found their marriage but no parents listed I'm afraid. I didn't know if you had their children, so I've included those too for you. I had a look for Felix and Christian. There were no Felix's listed anywhere in Scotland and I found two possibles for Christian, if she was born in Campsie. Hope the info helps. Dawn :-) FELIX MCEWAN married CHRYSTIAN STEWART, 18 Sep 1803 All the children were born in Campsie, Stirling. ALEXANDER ch 5 Mar 1809 PETER ch 10 Apr 1813 BRIDGET ch 2 Apr 1814 ?
