red mail Thomas Muir Veitch - Margaret Reston
Am researching descendants of Thomas Veitch and Margaret Reston of Port Glasgow (they married in 1865). Children of the couple to reach adulthood are Thomas, David, Janet, Robert and Elizabeth (Bessie) Veitch. In 1898 their son Robert George (an engineer) married Cecilia Jane Lange in Sarawak. Another son David Reston married Catherine Horne of Kirkaldy in 1897, but unfortunately died in 1901 leaving two young children. Elizabeth (Bessie) married John Blair Wallace in 1907 at Greenock, while her sister Janet married James Wallace in Ballywillan Ireland in 1908.

red mail Downie/McCormick Family Tree
I'm trying to piece together the ancestors and descendents of my great-grandfather,John Downie of Port Glasgow. He was born somewhere in Ireland around 1860. He married Mary McCormick in P.G. in 1881. They had six Downie children: Patrick, Joseph, Mary McCormick, Rose Ann, Elizabeth (my grandmother) and Daniel. I have a bit of information on who some of the children married, but little else. If any of this sounds familiar, please get in touch. Thanks.
I am searching for anyone that has ties to a Goodlett ancestor. Robert Goodlett (b. 1720-1730 Scotland) may have left from Glasgow in mid 1730-1740s either unintentionally or otherwise. He supposedly arrived at Philadelphia, Penn. port and was apprenticed to a cabinet maker for his passage. We know he married Nancy Anne Middleton about 1750. They had a large family and later removed from Virginia to South Carolina late 1770s. Robert may have corresponded with his family as an adult.
red mail McDermott, Harry and Annie Ferns, seeking more info
Harry McDermott born May 1845 In Scotland, parents owned grocery store on Main St. for a few years. Married Annie Ferns. Stowed away on ship to Canada. Worked in a factory of some sort before going to Canada (maybe Loom Mill???) Would like more info on Harry... parents names, know he had a sister "May" and a brother that went to the Americas about early to mid 1860's. Know Harrys father died of Typhus fever in summer of Harry's 19th year. Know he had 7 siblings-I only know of May by name. I have his autobiography written when he was 84 years old, but he did not give many names of family members!!! Grandfather Denlin?? Another sister "Fanny"? (McElroy). Any and all help would be greatly appriecated.
red mail King family 1700s
James King Jnr. (my gr-gr-great-grandfather) and James King Snr. (not his father, possibly an uncle or cousin) were both shipmasters and later merchants in Port Glasgow in the 1700s, and partners with John Dunlop, merchant, and others in shipping, sugar refining and other business ventures. James King Jnr. married Mary Dunlop in 1764 and they had seven children; he died in 1797. James King Snr. married Elizabeth Hyndman in 1755 and he died in 1809. I have a lot of information about their families to share with anyone interested but I have not been able to ascertain their births or their antecedents. Any help will be appreciated.
