I am having some trouble trying to work out some family connections with respect to these families. The details I have are as follows:-
From 1851 Census - I have a James GALLOWAY aged 5 being a Grandson to David MORRISON aged 65. In the same household there are Agnes MORRISON aged 28 (Daur); James McWHIRTER aged 39 (Son-in-law); Mary McWHIRTER aged 36 (Daur); their 6 children and Mary MORRISON aged 26 (Daur). I am trying to locate who James GALLOWAY's mother was. He was born in Girvan in about 1846.
From 1871 Census - I am trying to locate a Jane McCULLOCH aged 12 (born Colmonell) being a Niece to James McWHIRTER (The same James as stated above). In the same household there are James' wife, Mary, and 3 of their children; Mary McWHIRTER aged 49 (Sister); Andrew MORRISON aged 2 (Grandson) and a William McWHIRTER aged 3 (Grandson). I would also like information on the two grandsons, Andrew MORRISON and William McWHIRTER.
David MORRISON's wife was Agnes THOMSON and James McWHIRTER's parents were John McWHIRTER and Margaret FORGIE.
I would love to hear from anybody who may be able to put me on the right track.
