I would think Fail would be the now "Failford" East of Ayr on the
Mauchline Road 3 miles from Mauchline.
I would expect a mill to be there as the River Ayr passes the village.

I have the following tombstone inscription relating to my 5
** Erected by Robert Anderson in memory of his wife Catherine Andrew,
Sep 1857 in 43rd year of her age, also Father-in-law JAMES ANDREW, late
miller in Fail, died 7 Apr 1859 in 72nd year of his age**
1: 'miller in Fail' - is Fail a village or would it be the
of a farm?
2: Is there anyone 'out there' connected to this family. I'm
descended from James's brother Alexander (1774-1863).
