John Gladstone of Crossmichael, Scotland
My gg grandmother Margaret Gladstone was b 1827 at Leadhills, natural daughter of Janet McDonald and John Gladstone. The Kirk of Sessions record gives Crossmichael as John Gladstone's parish. That is near Castle Douglas. I understand that a line of Gladstone's moved to Rosebank, Castle Douglas from Wiston, LKs Scotland in the early 1800s. One record shows a cemetery marker for John Gladstone 1802-1835 at Castle Douglas. I believe that is likely to concern Margaret's father. Would welcome contact from anyone with further information.
