It has been some time since we communicated, as I was going on vacation. But now I see some activity on the message board and thought to contact you again.
Have you been able to piece together any research on John, James or Alxandar Strachan who lived in Newton-on-Ayr. James was born in 1770 or 1772. I am not sure if they were from somewhere else besides Newton-on-Ayr in Scotland.
