Information about Hugh McCallum, Ferguslie
I am looking for any information about Hugh McCallum that lived in Dalskeith Road in Ferguslie Park, Paisley back in 1969. He went to West School and had a sister called Elizabeth. I believe he may have died quite young during a work accident in which he fractured his skull.

Looking for any information on Thomas MCGREGOR born abt 1790 in Inverness. He married Martha MACFARLANE in Paisley Middle on 10 March 1816. They had 6 children: Margaret Richardson born 1816, Marion Pringle born 1818, William Richardson born 1821, Thomas born 1823 (died sometime before 1825), Thomas born 1825, and John born 1829 (my 3rd great grandfather). I find Thomas, William, Thomas & John in the 1841 Census but cannot find Martha, Margaret or Marion. I think Margaret married a Robert STEWART and they had 1 child Margaret Ann. Any information on anyone in this family would be greatly appreciated.

At the time of her death in 1959 my great grandmother Rachel Nicholson was living at 8 Wellmeadow Street, Paisley. I believe that her son Roderick may also have lived there as he gave the same address when reporting the death.( When he died in 1977 however, his address was shown as 32, Barterholm Road, Paisley.)Rachel's daughter Kate/Catherine Russell was also living at 8, Wellmeadow Street, at the time of her death in 1970. Her husband Robert Miller Russell had died in 1965 also at 8 Wellmeadow Street. I am desperate for any information that anyone may have in regard to any of these people, or any children. My father grew up not knowing that he had living relatives in Scotland. His own father moved to England circa 1934. Can anyone out there help at all?

red mail HOLM, Margaret, married with BARR, John.
Dau Jean was baptised in 1761 Father: John Barr Mother: Margaret Holm Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland D: Unknown, Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland. Jean would marry SCLATTER, John, and their children would be Martha Sclater 1777 Jean Slater 1779 Mathew Slater 1781 Wallace Slater 1783 Margaret Slater 1784 Elizabeth Slater 1786 David Slater 1788 John Slater 1790 David Slater 1792 Martha would marry Gavin Hamilton 1773 died 5 January 1837. HOLM, Margaret, does seem to have been daughter to William, 25 Oct 1730  Kilmacolm,Renfrew,Scotland a HOLM Margaret dau to William was baptised; am not sure as to the distance separating Kilmacolm and Paisley, and thus not sure whether Holm is the right Margaret, although the dates seem to match reasonably well and a BARR Jean isn't baptised to any other person in the local vicinity and era. Does anyone have any idea save as to Margaret's mother- whoever was married to William?

red mail SCLATTER, John, married with CRAIGE, Maren.
Mr John Sclatter married Ms Maren Craige at Abbey Paisley in Paisley, and they had a son David, who would in turn have a son also David, with a GEMMILL, Bessie. Here are the details on the SCLATTER and CRAIGE wedding at Paisley. Name: John Sclatter Gender: Male Marriage Date: 16 Jan 1672 Marriage Place: Abbey Paisley,Renfrew,Scotland Spouse: Maren Craige FHL Film Number: 1041087, 0102048 As yet have no details on who Maren and John were; there's a Marion Craige in Edinburgh who's mother is a Ms Elizabeth Broun, but she doesn't seem likely given the distance and the time period we're talking about, here. As said in another post here, Sclatter would over time become Sclater. Their son would marry a Bessie GEMMILL, the dau to GEMMILL, William, and a WYLIE, Jonet. Their son David would eventually marry PINKERTON, Margaret, and then their son John would have a dau Martha who would marry into HAMILTON. To put it a little more simply: Maren Craige 8th great-grandmother  David Sclatter (1692 - ) son of Maren Craige  David Sclatter (1720 - ) son of David Sclatter  John Sclater (1756 - ) son of David Sclatter  Martha Sclater (1777 - ) daughter of John Sclater  John Hamilton (1801 - ) son of Martha Sclater  Isabella Bell Hamilton (1835 - 1921) daughter of John Hamilton  Lavinia Campbell Mullins (1879 - 1947) daughter of Isabella Bell Hamilton

red mail PINKERTON, Margaret and SCLAT(t)ER, David (1720- death date unknown).
Wonsering whether anybody could locate anything on PINKERTON, Margaret. Already have the records on their children John and Jean. David was the son of David, and have his baptismal record saved already. His mother's maiden was GEMMILL, and it's likely that the correct GEMMILL, a woman with the name Bessie, is the one is the genealogy tree. Thus only require help with the PINKERTON side, please. It's likely that there were John and Jean either as parents or aunt and uncle, given the Scottish traditions, though can't be certain as it didn't alwayd work out like that. Would sincerely appreciate any help you could give, thankyou. Please also note, the surname Sclatter seems to lose a t when Jean comes along, and that's why it's so puzzling with regard to tracing the above people.

red mail Ian Campbell from Renfrew, Scotland
Hello there, Looking for information on an old friend of mine called Ian Campbell. Ian lived at North lodge Road in Renfrew and worked in Renfrew Post Office for a while around 1965/66. His father worked at Glasgow Airport and Ian was a member of the Glasgow Flying Club(I think that was it's name) He had 1 sister, I believe who eventually moved to Paisley, Renfrewshire. We were also friends with Lem Greenwood of Renfrew, John Corrigan (antique dealer) of Paisley and John McGregor of Paisley. He had relatives in Morar, Mallaig and my last known location for Ian was Fort William. Any snippet of information would be invaluable. Thank you in anticipation, Regards, P
