I am trying to locate my Scotland location and of course records!!I have David Millar, who went to Ireland to work for nobility, married Margaret Riley and had Mary A., William Oct 5, 1839, James Margaret, Robert and Jane before coming to America in 1849.
David's family......Father William Millar Sr.married Mary Brown.ChildrenWilliam Jr., John, (who was sent to Australia for govt work and later became a successful merchant there?), David (born 1804), James(a stonecutter), Robert and Margaret.
I have a reference in a letter dated 1924 from a relative visiting Scotland.....they started for Ayr, visited Burns' cottage, and went by car to Beith and drove to grandfather's birthplace--Forsythe."The natives callit Forsyde"
Any help would be greatly appreciated.I have hit a brick wall for the Scotland piece.
