I am researching my mother's family, she was born an Aird. My grandfather was Gavin Muir Aird b. 1897 Tarbolton, his father was Hamilton Aird b. 1843 Kirkmichael and his father was James Aird b. 1815?, where?, m. 12.04.1841 to Janet CALDWELL at Kirkmichael.
I have two James Aird births at Kirkmichael in 1815. James christened on 08.10.1815 son of William Aird and Mary (nee Hunter). James born on 26.11.1815 son of James Aird and Agnes (nee Goudie).
Which one of these married Janet Caldwell in 1841?
Also looking for Mary Muir, my grandfather's mother.She married Hamilton Aird 17.07.1891 at Tarbolton.This was a second marriage for Hamilton Aird and family hearsay says it was a second marriage for Mary too.She was born at Dreghorn c. 1845/1846 (aged 55 in the 1901 census). Was Muir her first married name?
Also, finally, my grandfather's sister, Janet Aird b. 1885/86 at Tarbolton went to live in Canada, date/location not known.Any connections?
