Orchiston family

Posted: 10 May 2010 1:29PM GMT
Classification: Query
My connection to the Orchiston (spelled many ways) is through William Orchison (b. 1818 Kirriemuir) who married Elizabeth Millar (b. 1816 Liff) (my great grandmother's sister). I have shown below the full connection. I do not know who Alexander's parents were and have not tried to search. Is this helpful?
