Surname: RONALD, McWHIRTER
I am not sure if I have a connection to your Ronalds but you may be able
to put me on the right track. Do you know if your Robert Ronald was married
to an Isabella McWhirter? I located a shipping record for Isabella (my
Great Grandmother) and her first husband, Robert Ronald. They came out
to Australia in 1886 with a Robert & Agnes Ronald who appear to have been
Robert Ronald's parents.
Isabella and Robert had the following children Annie (b. 1886); Agnes (b.
1888); Robert (b. 1889); John (1891) and Jessie (1894).
If any of this sounds familiar I would be grateful to hear from you.
Am looking for any info on Hans Matthews and Mary MacMurray who were the
parents of Mary Matthews. Daughter Mary was christened 4 Aug 1821 at St.
Quivox, Newton, Ayrshire, Scotland and married John Hannay Rennie at

I am interested in any information about John Jones, b. abt 1802 in ?,
and Ann or Anna Howat, b. bet. 1786-1800 in ? They married about 1826 in
Kilmarnock. He died 19 Jun 1860 and she 15 Dec 1876 in a place or street
named Barleith. Her father was William Howat and her mother might have
been Ann Paterson. His parents were James Jones and Ann Baird. Any more
information would be greatly appreciated.

I was looking through the IGI last week and I noticed that my ggggrandmother,
Ann Jeffries, had a father with the surname of Jamphra. I have never heard
of this name before. Is this a Scottish name? Ann's father was Alexander
Jamphra and her mother was Jane Vincent. Ann died in Hurlford, Ayr, in
May 1890. She was born about 1838 but I don't know where. She married Robert
Ferrans in Kilbirnie or New Cummnock, Ayr in May 1859. However there is
no marriage record in the GRO in Edinburgh. Do any of these people sound
familiar to anyone. I have searched for Ann's and Robert's parents to no
avail and now I think it is due to the difference in the surname.

My Dear Annie, once again I have the pleasure of answering your
kind and ever welcome letter. And for two nights before I received it I had
such dreaming of you being home. I dream very often about you and you are
always back in Catrine but when I awake I have to say like Roly O. More
dreams always go by contrary. However I just console myself with the
thought that some morning ere long I shall find it a reality. I was sorry
to see from your letter that your headache is still troubling you. I trust
it isnt so bad as you used to have. You must take care of yourself as I
know you will bear a great deal before saying anything. I used to wish I
had your patience as the least thing made me grumble. The Yankees dont
seem to think much about getting married but within our own country a great
many people think they cant be right unless they have a man, when perhaps
they would be a great deal better without them. Of course you mustnt say
so or theyll be saying its sour grapes which would be true enough in my
case as I never had the chance. Well I dont think Annie, that either you
or me would take a man just for the name of one. There are two girls
getting married in Catrine just now. Mobisa Lewis and Maggie Buchanan. Miss
Lewis is on Friday first the groom being McDonald. I dont know his first
name. They say it has to be but I cant tell for the truth and the other is
a fortnight-Glasgow Fair Friday I think it was. Glasgow Fair Saturday we
were at Ayr at The Concert. I was down Sat. last along with Jeannie and J.
Miller came down for a half day. We had a laugh when we passed by the shop
where The Cheap Sweeties are sold. He sends his respects to you. Jeannie
took me to Dr. McHerrow when down just to hear what he would say. He
examined me, there was no disease about me and I was to take plenty of
nourishing food and he gave me a bottle to regulate The Bowels. He seemed
to think that constipation of the Bowels was the worst thing about me so I
am only getting Tea once a day. But I am feeling all right now and I
expected to go home but Jeannie wanted me to come up for another week or
two if all goes well. Not to start my work fills The Holidays which will be
in 4 or 5 weeks its for company to her as I feel quite able for my work. I
heard that your Aunt down at the______ had lost her battle in life over.
She was poorly for a good long while it is a great pity of the children as
they have lost their best friend but there will be someone called up to
care for them. Janet Kirkland hasnt forgotten you but always asks kindly
for you but I havent seen her too often. For some time all the people that
you were intimate are always asking after you. You were saying a certain
matter was up. You were quite right if you thought it better to do so of
course me being so long away I havent been seeing him or hearing anything.
I dont see how he can be bitter against you. It might be the reverse. I
always think we cant get past whats laid out for us but I trust you will
get one in every respect worthy of you. I will now say good night and pray
this finds you in good health. Trusting God will ever bless and keep you
with kindest love. I am ever your loving friend Janet. Be sure and write
This one I have to include this one in full, full of description of the
surrounding areas and lifestyles.
"I am happy to have the opportunity of supplying a few notes regarding my old
friend Matthew Fowlds. He lived at Greystone Knowe, on the Grassyards Road,
where it is three hundred feet above Kilmarnock. During the whole period of
my ministry, commencing in 1851, I had been in the habit of taking a study
walk every Saturday when the weather was fair. I preferred one that was
varied and bracing, with commanding view, and at the same time retired. Such
is the road from Kilmarnock to Moscow; it was therefore frequently my choice.
Greystone Knowe was a good-sized cottage on a road parallel to the upper end
of this one. Half of the house was a weaver's shop, for Matthew Fowlds was a
customer weaver - that is, he wove the original material into cloth for
customers. Till he was an old man he was in the habit of visiting Kilmarnock
once a week, generally on Saturdays, which involved in all a walk of eight
miles and a half. His walk corresponded with mine so far, and thus he and I
frequently met, and gradually became acquainted. At time I so far varied my
excursion as to make a short digression, which led me to pass his house, and
laterally, when I did so, I always called on him. It was eminently pleasant
to visit Matthew Fowlds, for I always found him comfortable, contented,
happy, and ready for a talk, especially about olden times. He would tell me
about Fenwick in those days - about old customs, old roads and former
dwellers, supplying many interesting particulars.
He often spoke of the first Secession minister at Fenwick (James Dewar), and
would tell how that, when he was old and frail on his feet, he had a carriage
and pair to enable him to get the benefit of the fresh air - the carriage, a
hand barrow, the horses, two of his elders, who were proud to convey him in
this fashion to the church or take him out for an airing. Matthew would tell
also of the time when women could spin without a spinning wheel by using
little stone whorls, which they cast into the air. They could thus go out to
visit on an evening, carrying their wool over their shoulders and their
spinner in their pockets. He would speak also of the larger gatherings, which
we now call "Harvest Homes," but which were then known as "Kirns." They are
referred to by Burns in "The Twa Dogs" as among the occasions that helped to
relieve the monotony of the poor farmer's lot -
"As bleak-fac'd Hallowmas returns,
They get the jovial, ranting Kirns,
When rural life o' ev'ry station
Unite in common recreation;
Love blinks, wit slaps, an' social mirth
Forgets there's care upon the earth."
If in the course of conversation I happened to mention Craufurdland old
bridge - the most interesting and romantic spot in all the Kilmarnock
district - Matthew would declare it was no old bridge to him, as he
remembered when it was quite new, the stream, before it was erected, being
crossed at a ford higher up, opposite the mill, near Sandbed.
One day I happened to find a plant of flax on the roadside, and asked him,
"Have you ever seen flax cultivated?" His reply was - "I have grown it
myself. Sent it to the flax mill at that ford we were speaking of. I have had
it spun for me, and then have woven it into cloth myself."

Dear David, I am very glad to meet you, my email address is yvonne(a)sub.net.au
I am longing to get together to exchange information. I am a weekend warrior
with the computor so sorry if it has taken so long to respond but my delight
at finding you and your mention of Auntie Ina is beyond my wildest dreams.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
With love from your Cousin Yvonne in Australia
"…I remember Mr. Fowlds when he was getting on in his seventies and thought
himself still a youngster. I see him now, as I last saw him, in his ninetieth
year. He had been at the Synod. On his way home he favoured me with a visit.
"It wisna my turn, it was Wyllieland's, but he canna put on his ain claes.
I'm thirty years aulder and I can put on mine!"…
The Rev. William Orr was a man greatly beloved….He set out on his last
pastoral visitation to the Fenwick Moors at seven in the morning. Beginning
at Hareshawmill, he wended his way from house to house, up to Graigendunton,
down by Blackbyres, and reached the schoolhouse at Waterside well after a
round of the clock…Once a year Mr. Orr had the use of the schoolroom at
Waterside. There he catechised young and old…Those who failed to appear at
the schoolhouse were asked to meet in the session house. There Mr. Hugh
Calderwood, of High Blackbyre, a man well up in years, arrived one evening,
little dreaming what was in store for him. With the minister beside him at
Hareshaw tea table, Hugh recalled his grievance on that occasion.
"I went awa' doon to the session house. There wis naebody there but me, and
Mr. Orr speired me every question, frae beginnin' tae end!"
"Oh, not them all, Hugh ! not them all!"
"Ye did so! Ye did so!"…"
The following persons married at Fenwick in 1864. If any of them belong to
you, I'd be glad to look up specifics for you, within the next several weeks.
The last one with the details has as the bride my gggrandfather's sister. She
couldn't marry till she was 42 because she was expected to care for her
parents, and they lived till 1857 and 1863. Seems to be a history of that in
my Scottish family. If anyone knows the Groom, I'd be delighted to hear from
you. The minister was the highly regarded William Orr.

Subject: Letter #2 from JANET B.
25 April 1887 (arrived Fitchburg May 7 )
My Dear Annie, as this is the only kind of note paper I have just
now I've just to take it. I was very pleased to have your kind letter and
am always glad to hear from you. You were one of my greatest friends when
here and are so still and though absent from sight you are not from mind. I
am glad to hear that you are making such a good wage but trust your health
wont suffer from the long hours. But it is just as you say, money doesn't
bring everything. I am still keeping better but I'm not started work yet. I
am going from Home for a day or two then I expect to start work. It was
just a severe cold and I had wrought against it too long. But of course the
cold is the beginning of many atrouble. Your Mother was in last night for a
short time. She was going up to The Castle. I am going down today if it
clears up, but it has been showry all day. Your Mother was saying John had
been bad with rheumatics again. He has been very much troubled with them
this winter. I trust the good weather will put him all right. Your Mother
expects to go to Mauchline on Thursday as its the Race. James wants her to
come. Sabbath will be the 1st of May. You will hardly be wakened out of bed
(with a glaikit lassie) to go to the cowslip park. Do you know Annie I've
never been for a walk any of the roads we used to go since you went away. I
was laughing and telling them it was the want of a walk with you that was
making me unwell. I dont know how it is but I cant think to go with anyone
else. Then The Cattle Show comes off on the 14th, its a week later this
year. Do you remember the tea party, even the wee room with plenty of veal
and your Father declaring he was getting nothing but bones. You will think
me silly perhaps putting down these things but they just came to my memory
as I was writing. The talk is rather abated about Miss Gilmour how she got
a carriage and pair to take her from The Wilson Hall to change her dress
and then they went away next morning in the same and she had on the jacket
she got. It is a brocade velvet and he had on His "Tite" so they were a
little bit behind as they ought to have had travelling suits. We are always
getting something to surprise us and the last one is Jessie Thowson is
going to be married. She is out The Mill, its to come off in a fortnight. I
dont know the man she is getting, he comes from about Crouberry. They are
going to live with his folk as he has nothing and neither has she. Its a
case of necessity who would have thought it of her, she was always afraid
to come along with the choir to have a dance or anything but she has could
do worse. Of course she is to be pitied too but she has been very cheeky as
she went to the communion in February and was even singing at the Bible
Class Meeting and Jean McIt__ight was cryed yesterday on some man with a
pi__ leg (wait till I tell ye) silver so we are fairly in the shade. I dont
remember any else worth mentioning just now but will close hoping this will
find you in good health. I am glad to say my mother is keeping better but
has the cold just now. I am ever your loving Friend Janet.

I have run out of ideas looking for Hannan in Maybole. I
have the weddings in Maybole for the period1820 to 1854 and
have been to the LDS and searched for a twenty year period
covering his marriage to Agnes Wilson from Girvan but they
were not there.The Poor Law record from Barn Hill in Glasgow
said they were married on Maybole in 1829 by the Rev Gray,
he was there for a long time but he did not marry A John
Hannan to an Agnes Wilson in 1829. Were there any other
churches there at that time. I did find a Samuel Hannan
marrying a Jean Cairnsi n 1823 but I already knew of him
from a person in Zambia tracing Hannan in Maybole. If any
one wants a look up send me amail privately.
Most of the Proclamations had at the end something
like ---2Days--- what does that mean

PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to email@example.com
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POST?
1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
