Muirkirk grew extremely rapidly when the mines and tarworks were open
so lots of folk landed there from who knows where. I wish I knew
where my Morrisons came from! Is your family on the 1841 as that
would tell you if they were born in Ayrshire and the 1851 would give
birth places. But then people died young too - especially in mining areas.
I think I have some Muirkirk MIs somewhere - would these be of
interest? I think they are in a paper file so I'd have to look for them if so.
