Hi Jobeth, I think everyone is researching William, John, and James (Big Grin). I am searching for information for William McMECHAN b: abt 1831 s/o James McMECHAN and Agnes GAW. William married Jane MIDDLETON April 3,1852 at Ballygowan,County Down. Their first two children James b:abt 1856 and Thomas Shaw b:abt 1862 were born in Ireland. I have the family back in Scotland by the birth of their third child Margaret in 1864. Would be most interested in William's parents birth/marriage information.
