red mail McCredie, Hugh
Hugh McCredie was an inn-keeper in Colmonell, married to Elizabeth Kennedy. I've found records of six children born to them betweeh 1789 and 1811: William (born 1789), Margaret (born 1790), Agnes (born 1792), Elizabeth (born 1802), "Jennet McCredy" (born 1805) and Hugh (born 1811). The son Hugh married Agnes Miller in Colmonell in 1844; they migrated to Manchester, England, where Agnes died in 1852. After leaving Scotland, the younger Hugh always spelled his surname Macreadie. He migrated to Victoria, Australia, in approx. 1854 with his young son William (my great-grandfather). More information, or contact with descendants, welcome. David

red mail John McIlwraith b 1761 in Colmonell
I'm looking to verify the parents of John McIlwraith b 1761 in Colmonell who married Janet Nicol from Dailly, Ayrshire, Scotland, in Girvan, Ayrshire, Scotland in 1788. Potentially it could be John McIlwraith b 14 Jan 1761 with a twin sister Sarah McIlwraith. Their parents were John McIlwraith and Sarah Martin. The twins were born in Craigenton which seems to be he farm owned by Robbie Burn's father. I cant find any other info about John McIlwraith and Sarah Martin other than them having the twins at Craigenton. Any help would be appreciated. Sharon
