HMS Scotia, Doonfoot, Ayrshire May 1942
This is going to seem a slightly strange request. I am doing this on behalf of a cousin (actually a step-relative's half-relative who was related by blood through a distant cousin, but will stick to cousin for ease). Their family have always been led to believe that their brother/uncle passed away in unfortunate circumstances due to his (regiment) all having a little too much to drink that evening whereby a fracas ensued and he got tipped out of bed by someone that caused his passing to a head injury. This was always their thoughts as was told to the family at the time, and passed down to the next generation. Upon looking into this for more information for family history, she found that the incident was not recorded or at the least very little surrounding it. My cousin attended a Royal Marines remembrance event where they display the book of remembrance and was shocked to say the least that 13 men (I'm sure she said 13, but it could have been 16) from the same (regiment) had died on the same day, this naturally roused suspicion and now it is putting question marks in the surviving family's thoughts that they were not informed of the true facts surrounding his death and even suspecting a cover up. One death in this way is a tragic accident, two would rouse suspicion, but 13 and I think I am inclined to agree with her.

red mail Patrick McFarlane and Bridget McFadden, Ayrshire
Looking for information on the family of Patrick McFarlane and Bridget McFadden, who came from Leitrim County Ireland in the 1840s.

red mail Isabella Gilfillian (alt Gilfillan)
I'm trying to find out anything about the family of Isabella Gilfillian b. 1846 Ayrshire Scotland. Verbal family histories of Isabella tell that she lived in an Island off the coast of Ayrshire, that she immigrated to New Zealand (her sister chickened out so she took her place at the last minute). There are census reports of Gilfillans' in Sterling shire but I'm pretty certain these are not the right Gilfillan family. In New Zealand she married Hugh Jones (Anglesey Wales b.1832) in 1886 and they lived in Arrowtown New Zealand.

All I have to go on are her photos with very limited text on the back. What I do know is...that Millie, from Girvan (not my Aunt Millicent) had a sister named Ann and a son named Gordon, born abt: 1951 and she also had a daughter named Janice. Millie was probably married to "Bob". Gordon was a member of the Boys Brigade in 1969. Gordon had two children named Kirsty, born 1980 and Pamela born a couple of years later. I believe their mother was Charlotte. I would greatly appreciate any guidance or help with this family’s last name(s), whereabouts, or contact information. Gratefully yours, Pamela

red mail Ancestors of Charles Muir CAMPBELL, b. 1(?) Sep 1795
Charles Muir Campbell was supposedly born 1 Sep 1795 in Scotland, then taken to the West Indies as an infant by his parents, orphaned at an early age, taken to New Jersey USA by his "uncle James CAMPBELL", and "put to school" at Basking Ridge NJ (possibly around June 1798). He may have had family in Penns Neck NJ. He married first Agness SCHENCK, and later Rebecca F. ELY, a widow. He died around 12 Oct 1874 and is buried in Oak Ridge Cemetery, Springfield, Sangamon County, IL, USA. We are trying to determine where in Scotland (or Ireland?) his parents came from and who they were. There is apparently and "uncle James CAMPBELL" who brought him to the USA as an orphan. Family lore is that he was heir to some money and his life was in danger in the West Indies (probably Jamaica, but possibly other islands like Grenada or Demerara). I'm concentrating on two likely areas within Scotland - the Ayr and Muirkirk area - because there were some marriages betweens MUIR's and CAMPBELL's around 1750. And also around the Glasgow area - because there is coincidental (?) names that crop up in the letters of the poet, Thomas Campbell. His parents were both CAMPBELL's, (from different lines). The poet's mother was sister to a Daniel CAMPBELL. The poet's father had two other brothers, one in the West Indies, the other a respected religious leader in Virginia in the USA. Charles Muir Campbell (CMC) attended the "Classical Academy" (or "Brick Academy") taught by the Rev FINLEY - who was connected to Rev John WITHERSPOON, which also connects back to the poet, Thomas CAMPBELL. Since Thomas CAMPBELL grew up in the Glasgow area, that is an area of interest as well. I'm hoping to identify any birth, marriage, letters, or other records which would help me identify the parents of Charles Muir Campbell or his uncle, James CAMPBELL. Thanks! Greg
