I have done a lot of work on the Ayrshire Strachan's
My Ancestors are Thomas Strachan and Susannah Alexander who married in Irvine in the 1770's.
Their son Robert is my ancestor.
I do also know about your Strachan's from St Quivox also.
I have done some work for someone in the USA about them?
The Strachan's were my Dad's family. However my Mum a Montgomery great grandfather Hugh Montgomery married possibly 3 times. His third wife was Margaret Strachan daughter of Alexander Strachan and Martha McCall. I am descended from his first wife Mary Grant.
I still do a lot of research although not much on my own line of late. My files need updated, which I am working on.
I have spent a lot of time over the past 2 years photographing and transcribing gravestones in Ayrshire and I am working on my 3rd book on them. I have done Riccarton - Kaimshill, Old High Kirk Kilmarnock, Dreghorn in progress, Kilmaurs in progress. I have had little time to correspond with people. However I would like this to change,
Best wishes and good to hear from you, let me know where you fit into this family.
