Re: Balgarnie - Peebles & Lanarkshire
Janice, I too am a descendant of John Balgarnie and Janet Lumsen (Lumisden) of Whitekirk. My line is through John's son Robert (b. 1756, his son Robert (1793-1849), his daughter Marion Hogarth (1831-1912), her daughter Elizabeth (1867-1913)and so down to my father, Robert Balgarnie Young Scott (1899-1987). John Balgarnie's son Ribert (b. 1756) had five sons who account for more than a few of the Balgarnies of East Lothian. I have sorted out a fair number of them, but would very much like to fill in the gap between John Balgarnie of Whitekirk and James Balgarnie (b. 1867)and his wife Janet Watson. All best.
