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.

red mail Looking for birth father he was from Alloa
Looking for birth father from Alloa My name is Ammanda Sturges ( Ferguson ) my mother Janette Forbes and my birth father James Ferguson were married in 1971 ( the year of my birth 11/01/1971 ) James worked in the kilt industry I believe as a kilt maker in that year. My mother is from Kirkintilloch and I believe they were married there. I was born in Southampton, but raised in Kirkintilloch. I now live in California, USA. I have waited 47 years to begin this search, but I know I have siblings. If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

red mail David Watson (b. about 1846)
David Watson was the son of John Watson and Elizabeth Henry. His birthplace is given on later censuses as Alloa, but I cannot find a record of birth or baptism. (Perhaps he was a non-conformist, so not in Parish records.) I do not know where hespent his childhood, or whether there were brothers and sisters. He appears in the 1871 census as a lodger in Glasgow. In 1873 he married a Tillicoultry girl, Elizabeth Lawrie.
