I have been following your postings with great interest. My Great great Grandparents were James Jess and Janet Drynan (as were yours). My Great grandparents were James Jess and Jessie Rodgers and my Grandparents James Jess and Janet Deans.
If this is of interest to you I can give you more details.
Jim Williamson and I have been corresponding for many years on this line.
