Dawn , I may have asked before but have some other info now. I`m trying to find birth date of my great, great grandmother. - MARY RATTRAY. In her marriage and death parents are ROBERT and ISABEL RATTRAY. Can`t find that one anywhere but there is one with parents JOHN and ELIZABETH in the correct year-about 1842. Could you look in your records please and see if her birth is recorded . This was in St. Vigeans , Forfar. I wonder if JOHN and ELIZ died and ROBT and ISABEL adopted Mary.. Thanks, Rosalyn

Hi Dawn, would you please be able to see if you could find a John Ireland, born 1763, Married July 1806, to Janet Christie who was born in 1781. I am sure John was born in St Leonards, Fife and the family didn't move about much then. I don't know the parents of either person and would like to find them. Also, Alexander Deans, born 1770, married in July 1799, in Longformacus parish, to Elizabeth Currie. . Any information at all about Alex would be appreciated! Many thanks in advance, Ian

Hi Dawn Thank you for your kind offer. My brick walls are James Ballantine M. Margaret Shearer 7/6/1798 at Eastwood Renfrew. Thomas Finlay M. Agnes Mitchel 19.2.1803 Loudon Ayrshire. If you could find parents of any of these I would be forever in your debt. I think James and Margaret's children might have been born in Stonehouse Lanarkshire. Thomas And Agnes both died in Loudon. Thanks again Janet
