of my paternal grandmother, Janet Aird Finnie. Need to find someone who
has information as to when she came to Canada and when she married John
William Smith of England. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
Wendy Wenberg From Mission, British Columbia, Canada
This is a very helpful website. I am looking for
info on Michael Tracey and Jane Kelly and family of Ardrossan. Their
daughter Elizabeth married Daniel McManus in the area about 1891. He
was born in Ireland to James McManus and Mary Falloon (Falloona?) in
1851. His mother died in Child birth with his twin so James may have
remarried. Elizabeth was born in Ardrossan in 1867. They immigrated to
the USA with their son Joseph Patrick who was born in 1893 about a year
later. Haven't located the McManus family yet but I know it's a matter
of time. I am looking forward to visiting your site often. Thanks for
all of your hard work.

Hi, this is a great site! We're having a great time
looking around it. Keep up the great work Alex!We're researching Robbs
in Ayrshire from Coylton and Tarbolton and looking for any connection
that anyone else may have to them. William Rob is the father to James
who was born in 1732 in Tarbolton. James married ??? Tait and they had
a son Andrew in 1757 in Coylton. We would really like to know the name
of James' wife. We 'think' James may have died in 1817 and possibly
buried at Dalrymple cemetery.Any information on these areas would be
appreciated so we can learn more about where they lived.Thanks
heaps!Bill and Leeona

Enjoying the website - especially the photos of
Ayrshire where my gr gr gr grandfather Samuel Simons was born 1811. He
may have brought his wife from Ireland, Sarah Ann Mulberry and had a
son William b 6/11/1842, daughter Elizabeth died in Ayrshire? - then
all emmigrated to America- Philadelphia- Germantown area. There may be
a connection to Collins family name. All that I know is from an old
family bible.I believe these were educated landowners and were forced
to leave Scotland due to religious persecution. Samuel and Sarah had a
son James, born in Londonderry 1848, m Eliz Morgan a Civil War widow
and had son Harry Collins Simons m Mabel Aaron Yeager of Leverington
family in Philadelphia 1910.Harry taught at Bucknell University, I
believe he was a chemist. Any info from distant Simons relatives would
