I'm Ian Goldie and I live in Johannesburg South Africa I am not sure that I should be
on your list but if I read the map right you have a Kirkmichael in Ayrshire, we I believe
there are a couple of Kirkmichael's in Scotland but your is the closest to
Dumfriesshire from where my family come.
This is the information I have so far.
Robert Goldie ( 1840 - 1926 ) married Janet Wilson ( 1843 - 1929 ) in Kirkmichael in 1867,
they had 5 children Elizabeth 1870 born Mouswald, James born Kirkmichael 1872, Robert born
Kirkmichael 1875 (my line ), Andrew born Kirkmichael 1877 and Thomas born Cummertrees
I believe and I can not be sure but my father said that Andrew went to the USA and Thomas
to India , I do not have any info on James, Elizabeth married John Wylie in Lockerbie they
had 4 children Elizabeth, Jenny, Thomas and Kitty
Janet's father was James Wilson ( 1818 - 1891 ) born Kirkmichael, and her mother was
Elizabeth Boyes ( 1809 - 1884 ) I do not know where they married or how many children
other than Janet they had, but it is said she could have had a sister Jane maybe more.
Well I live in hope that some kind person will put me on the right track.
