I believe I may have a connection to the information below, as my great Aunty was Joan Monteith. My grandmother was Annie Hutchison Grieve who was born in New Cumnock along with Hunters, Hutchisons and Grieves. Barbara sounds familiar in my research. I have a relative living in New Cumnock called Colin McClatchie. I'm living in Melbourne Australia and would be glad to hear from you. Monteith is one of my connections.
