Perhaps some of your data on the OILPHANT clan may help me tie in some ends. My Mary married John DOUGLASS 23/Jun/1727 in Selkirk. John was born @ Catshawhill (a farm near Selkirk) s/o James DOUGLASS/Agnes WATSON. I went to Catshawhill to take pics when I was in Scotland 2 yrs ago. Found a lot of data on my DOUGLASS/OLIPHANT/OLIVER ancestors. John & Mary's daughter married the Rev Stephen OLIVER 28/Oct/1755 in Selkirk- and I found most of the data on the families there. If you find anything that might tie in to this family, would appreciate your passing it along to me.
