red mail Musgrave Henderson
Ian looking for information on a Musgrave Henderson who lived in the Gatdhouse of Fleet/Girthon area of Kirkcudbright. He is found on the 1851 Census for Girthon and has a a birth place of England, but I cannot find any records of him. He was 74 in 1851. He had a son, Gordon Henderson who died in 1900 who was married to first, Mary Hornsby and then Grace Whan after her death. We also know Musgrave was married to Elizabeth Henderson (new Rorison). If anyone has any information on where Musgrave was born, it would be much appreciated.
I would be interested in hearing from anyone with the Henry/Bell/McMiken/Douglas/Donaldson surnames or from anyone who may have knowledge of these names and ancestry in the Gatehouse of Fleet area.

Gardiners of Upper Rusko
I have the photograph album of Mary Gardiner, whom I believe to have been the wife of John Gardiner, farmer of Upper Rusko. The photos were taken in the 1920s and show Ruthvin Castle, Rusko Mill, the Galloway Football Team and the 'EUD&G' (which had me stumped). Does anyone know anything about the Gardiner family or what happened to them?
