red mail Mullan Sisters c.1871
I posted here the other day about this family and have received a few replies. I felt I should provide a little more detail in case it was of assistance, I might have said to little. The parents were Patrick (known as Peter) Mullan and his wife Margaret Leonard (often Lenard) both of Ireland. Daughter Sarah Jane (b.1840 Glasgow, Lanarkshire) appeared to work and did not appear to marry, she can be found in the census 1841, 1851, 1871. Sister Ellen (b.1844) married Mclaren and moved to NZ in 1875. Sister Agnes (b.1846 Greenock) is in the 1851, 1861 census and married, moved or died before 1871. Sister Margaret (b.1851 Greenock) found in 1861, 1871 census. After father Patrick dies in 1873 no concrete trace is found of his wife or daughter in subsequent census or other records. His wife's unmarried sister Sarah Lenard lived with the family in 1851, 1861 census.

red mail McLaren Mullan 1864
John Mclaren (b.1840) married Ellen Mullan (b.1845) at Greenock in 1864 (Roman Catholic) his parents where James and Agnes but tracing them back any further has been a brickwall. His wife, of Irish parents, had three sisters, Sarah Jane, Agnes and Margaret, all of whom appear in census records between 1841-1871 but thereafter vanish into time. Looking for help determining their fate also and tracing the Mclarens back further.

I'm looking for any information on ALEXANDER CHRISTIAN RAEBURN(sometimes known as ALEC RAEBURN). He was born in Gorgie Road, Edinburgh in about 1902/3. His parents were WILLIAM JAMES ALLAN RAEBURN and JANET RAEBURN nee STRUTH. He was a Civil Engineer and was thought to have run a Post Office and or Wool Shop some where in Fife (possibly Kirkaldy) from the mid to late 1950's/60's. He was married for a while to a Jean Keen/e, and they had a son, Anthony who it is believed joined the Royal Navy, and believed to have eventually settled in Australia/New Zealand. Later in life Alexander had a partner named Mitzi, who he lived with until her death, thought to be in 1960's.

red mail Ferguson, John, born Greenock
When John Ferguson married widow Mary Stewart (neé Hannah from Maybole, Ayrshire) in Melbourne in 1864 he gave his birth-place as Greenock and his parents as John Ferguson, engineer, and Mary Ferguson. John jnr would have been born about 1830 because he died here in 1867 supposedly aged 37. We haven't found a marriage in Greenock of a John Ferguson and a Mary Ferguson around 1830, but maybe Ferguson was not her maiden name. Needless to say, there are plenty of John and Marys. This is our 'brick wall'. Please, does anyone connect? Cheers, Tom Melbourne

red mail Andrew Muir of Greenock
Particularly interested in Andrew Muir (c1778-1849), merchant in Greenock, who with his brother James Muir owned a straw hat factory and the Clyde Pottery, amongst other businesses. Lived at Rosebank, Forsyth Street. I would be glad to hear from any other descendants. (Their elder daughter Mary Anne Frances Muir married George Carey Foster. Younger daughter Isabella Charlotte Muir married Robert Blyth - they were my greatgrandarents.) His grave in Greenock Cemetery section D - Andrew Muir 21.4.1849, 70, wife Isabella Fox - was completely covered in ivy, but it's been cleared and cleaned (Feb 2015).
