Only 2 births today, and they’re both for people who have subsequently failed to turn up in the records.
4 May 1805
James Marshall born in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, son of Robert Marshall and Agnes Logan and brother of my gg grandmother Sarah Marshall. Sadly, that’s all I’ve been able to discover about him.
4 May 1845
Birth of Elizabeth Hamilton at Moorefield Fireworks, Kilmaurs, Ayrshire, daughter of Janet Hamilton and Janet Strachan. Elizabeth was therefore the granddaughter of my ggg uncle Thomas Strachan and Elizabeth Nisbet. She is with her parents in 1841 at Corsehill Square, Dreghorn and then disappears from the records – or should I say she isn’t obviously there and I may not have dug deep enough to find her.
