Hi, Don, Your message was interesting in the fact that some of the names posted for the sons of John, are also in my family, of which I have little info. I will give you what I have. My Great Grandfather/Mother, Alexander(DOB 12/10/1863 in Whanland, near town of Airth)/Margaret (Farley Laing DOB 6/8/1867 in Drybrugh) Airthimmigrated to US in 1891,setteling in Byron, NY,leaving 3 sisters in Scotland, (no names available) and having two brothers, one was killed in the building of the "Tay Bridge" on the Firth of Tay,(no name) and as far as word of mouth has it, other brother (William) went to Australia. Alexander's father was also Alexander, (no middle name), and his mother's name was Ann Orr, (no DOB for either). What is interesting, is that the certificate of birth for Alexander shows the Parish of Kinnell in the County of Forfar, which is at the area of Airth and the Airth Castle. I have spent many hours online searching for any info. of a connection to anyone here in North America, and in Scotland, and have not had any luck so far. If there is any other info. you may like to share I would be greatful. Will await a reply, Thanks!!
