Hi, I am researching Alexander Ross who married Ann Sutherland in Morayshire...their children were John Ross b1778,Helen b1780,Alexander b1781,John b1784,James b1789,Helen b1791 and Elspeth b1792 at Rothes.

John Ross who was born 1784 married Jane Miller who was born 1795...they married in Rothes 1815.Their children were Alexander b 1816,John b1818,Charles b1821,Janet b1823,Isabel b1831 & Elspeth b1838.

Jane Millers parents were John Miller & Isobel Riach. Isobel Riach was born 1757 in Rothes. Her father was William Riach. John & Jane Millers children were James b1793,Jane b1795 and William b1790.

Just wondering if anyone has any connection with any of these??

I have just been 'rooting' through some family trees sent to me by other people and I have found a William Riach born
in Rothes in 1734. No family from him listed but his parents are + siblings etc.

I have a James Riach born in Rothes between 1723-1740 spouse unknown, but his son Adam was born 1798 and married Ann Wilson, again in Rothes. I have a tree from James to present. James and his son Adam - I as have yet to find sibblings - could we have a connection?

kind regards Carol Sklinar

I have a James Riach born about 1785 who married Jannet Duffus on Jan. 08, 1808 in Rothes. Their daughter Jannet married James Smith in 1845. James was the son of Alexander Smith and Jean Mellis. Alexander Smith was the son of Alexander Smith and Catharine Strathdee. I have a fair bit of Riach information if you're interested.

I have the Riach/Duffies(Duffus)connection on my database but as yet cannot link up with my line (I have no parents for James) which goes back to Peter Riach circa 1660, I think in the Dallas or Rothes areas.I have the full IGI listing if of any help.

Thanks for the reply, I have other sibling for Alexander but not the man himself.

At first was a bit confused, I was reading your info, without looking at the family tree - now all clicks into place.

You have given me James & Janet Dufus + Alexander, all the names are on my database, but was missing the vital link parents of Alexander.

They are now, well and truly tied, into the family knot.

Thank you.
