red mail HOUSTON & KILELLAN
Houston & Kilellan (May 06) Can anyone kindly give me some information on this area, from which many of my relatives hail. The map does not identify Kilellan - is it now a part of greater Houston ? Any local info greatly appreciated ! What do you know of the church and the place's history in the early 1800s Nov.06. Have managed to trace Killelan Church - it lies roughly East of Kilmalcolm, Renfrewshire, roughly half way between Kilmalcolm and Houston. What is the status of this church now ? Does it still have a Pastor, or is it closed. What do you know of the area, please ?
