Can anyone help me in finding out about my maternal great grandfather, David McDowall & his ancestors ? His background would I believe be in Ayrshire or elsewhere in S.W.Scotland. All I know so far is that his daughter Mary married Robert Kellie & the eldest of their 6 children became my mother. A few years prior to my becoming interested in tracing my family tree Mum had a heart attack & stroke following which her memory was never the same so she was unable to help with her family history. Mum passed away almost 3 months ago & her 2 brothers & 1 sister now left can't help.
