Hi all, I have now traced my James Gove from the Parish Register that I dug out of the SRO. He was the son of John Burns Gove and Elizabeth Jackson married 1851 in Sr Cuthberts, Edinburgh. This, of course, only moves the mystery one step back. Elizabeth was the daughter of John Jackson of Dumfries but I have got nothing yet on James. Perhaps I need to spend another £16. Anyone recognise the line?
