Still seeking descendants of Patrick (Peter) Riach born about 1794 in Tulloch, Morayshire, died 30 Aug 1864 in Forres, Morayshire; married Marjory Murdoch born about 1795, Morayshire (prob. Elgin), daughter of Alexander Murdoch and Ann or Anna Frigge. Patrick was the son of Peter Riach and Margaret Miller of Morayshire, and he was a well-known silversmith in Forres. Recently have found that Patrick's grandfather was probably Adam Riach who was born about 1739 in Rothes, son of Peter Riach born about 1720 in Rothes, son of Alexander Riach born about 1684, son of yet another Peter born about 1660. Please note, I have a new e-mail address (1999).

Surnames: Riach
Carol, I have three James Riachs connected to my Riach line. The only one that would fit would be the one born in about 1734. Following is a note in his file:

CHRISTENING: International Genealogical Index reports a christening in Rothes, Moray, Scotland on 14 Apr 1734, with father of Alexander Riach. The source is C111412, film # 6902650. A birth is reported the same date in the IGI
to a Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Riach, film # 538023. NOTE: There are a number of James Riachs listed as born in Rothes for the 1729, 1731, 1734 and 1736 time period.

I wish I had more information to confirm whether or not this is your James Riach! Thank you for your response at any rate. Best Wishes! Jan Hornick
