Urie/ Main Scottish connection
My most distant Main ancestor is James Main who was married to Mary Mitchell, abt 1766 in Slamannan. In IGI, there are several entries for a child supposedly born to this couple - Thomas, b.1773, d. 1849. He married Janet Forsyth, in 1811 in New Monkland. In my research, I have him born to David Main/ Jean Russall. I have never been able to tie Thomas in with James Main & Mary Mitchell. Thomas and Janet had 11 or 12 children. I was able to find the spouses of 4 of them:
1. Agnes Main, b. 1813, m. George Urie in 1833. They eventually moved to Cedar City, Utah, USA.
2. Mary, b. 1815, married James Arthur in 1839.
3. Beatrice, b. 1825, married Archibald Chalmers in 1846; they moved to Australia.
4. Isobella, b. 1827, married Archibald Chalmers.
I would appreciate sharing information with anyone who is familiar with this family
