James Report 21 Jan 2006 20:57

Hi Dawn, Thanks you so much for your very kind & generous invitation re Scottish ancestors, which is greatly appreciated. My ggrandparents were Agnes MILROY b. 1850 & David STEVENSON b. 1852, who I believe came from Kirkcudbright. Possibly TWYNHOLM as there is a strong connection with it. They married in Liverpool in July 1872 when Agnes was pregnant, then went back to Twynholm, Kirkcudbright for the birth. Which was a girl on 20th September 1872, whom they named Marion (my Gran). They later went back to Liverpool, date unknown, where they settled and raised a large family. Agnes MILROY had at least two brothers, these being: Charles MILROY b. 1864? Twynholm? Alexander MILROY b.1857 said to have been a 'ships carpenter'. I know nothing about the family of David STEVENSON of Scotland. When you have the time, anything you may be able to find about either families, no matter how small, would be very welcome indeed. Thanks & good wishes, Jim

Thank you for your kind offer Dawn, I am trying to find parents of Christiana Ness, she has birth years varying 1811 to 1819 in Pathhead, Dysart, Fife. She married George Fell in Dysart in 1843 but it doesn't show her parents on the transcript. Also she had a son John born Scotland 1849 I'm wondering if that was in Dysart, as on English census it doesn't give town. Many thanks Richard
