I appreciate your willingness to help me, unfortunately, I don't really have a lot to go on.
I have just visited a site at www.geo.ed.ac.uk/scotgaz/towns/townfirst1424.html
and don't quite know what to think. I was looking for info. about Woodhall, hoping to find old pictures.
Instead, I ended up finding the "Baird" family ... no doubt there is no connection but it makes me wonder.
I knew nothing beyond "Roderick Brown" until I received his Death Record (which I think he was really older than everyone thought). And I know nothing about any siblings he may have had.
I have received the Death Record for Roderick's wife, Jeanette (Probert)Brown, born in Scotland (no place) and Jeanette's parents were Wm. (William) PROBERT and Euphemia BAIRD. (Co-incedence no doubt.)
HOWEVER, Roderick & Jeanette's oldest girl was supposedly born in Edinburgh and their second child was born in Muirkirk, where I understand there use to be an old mine/steel place. This second child, Euphemia Brown married & had three children of which one of them (my grandmother, Jeanette) had her parents names on the Death Record listed as Father: James Woodhouse Mother: Euphemia Baird Brown.
Curious. Anyway, I appreciate your offer to help, but I am afraid everything is too sketchy. Perhaps if I find something more 'certain' I shall yell "Help".
Thank you again,
