Amelia and Euphemia Flockhart
My 3g grandmother Euphemia Flockhart, born in Alloa abt 1777, moved to Stranraer, Wigtownshire, where she married Hugh Atkins (or Aitken) in 1803. Amelia Flockhart, b. Alloa 1760, moved to Kirkcudbright, where she married John Sloan in 1790. Would like to establish the relationship between these 2 women (since I can find no other Flockharts in S.W. Scotland around this time, and since both were born in Alloa, I'm sure there is one). Amelia's parents were Amelia Philp and David Flockhart; I have no birth reg for Euphemia but death reg gives her father's name as David, so they could have been half sisters or aunt and niece (since Amelia's oldest brother was another David). Am also puzzled as to why they both moved to southwest Scotland. My best guess is that Euphemia was Amelia's illegitimate daughter, and that they had to leave Alloa for that reason. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would of course be happy to share information with other descendants.
