red mail Wilson Family in Kilmarnock lived at 11 west Netherton?
I am currently looking for my Father in law's family. We know that his family, Mother Margaret (Whittaker) and Father John as well as his siblings,(he said there were 13 of them) of which we can only account for a few..Andrew, Bunty, Edward were all in Kilmarnock and his Father died in the 1970's. Dad's name is John (Iain) William Wilson born May 12 1925 and he was a POW during WW2. Dad came to Canada in the late 1940's early 50's. We had been told that it was because the family perished during WW2 but we now know that is not the case. We don't really care why he came, but would like to know about the family that obviously survived the war. The trouble is Dad has Alhziemers, and was recently diagnosed with Inopperable Lung Cancer. He talks of his brothers and sisters, but we have never met any of them. My husband and his siblings have spent their whole lives thinking they were the last of the line, and now we find out that they may actually have family! So if you know of any Wilson's (Andrew, or Drew died in May of 2003 but have had no luck in finding family), please contact us. We would like to let Dad know that he does still have someone out there, before it is too late.

red mail James Reid - Kilmarnock Area
I am trying to find information about my ggg grandfather a James Reid who married Magdalen Hillhouse in Kilmarnock in 1802. They had six children that I know of - James Carse 1805, Agnes 1808, Robert 1810, Margaret 1813, John 1815 (my gg grandfather) and Robert 1819. The family seems to have been located in the Kilmarnock area and I believe that his son James Carse married a Jean Wyllie who may have been a lady in waiting at Rowallan Castle. I have found a James Reid (baron officer at Rowallan Castle) buried in Fenwick in 1849 and a Mrs Reid (his wife) buried in 1845 who may be the James I'm looking for but can't be sure. The line of Reids that I'm interested in were Land Stewards/Nurserymen. I also note that two of James children had "Carse" as a middle name, possibly from an earlier marriage. Does anybody have any information on these Reids?? My gg grandfather John Reid married a Jean Brown in Kilmarnock in 1838, but I can't locate any children from this marriage other than Hillhouse Glen (about 1847 my g grandfather) and his brother Robert T 1856. I believe there may have been a William and John. Does anybody have any information on these Reids also??
red mail Barnes/Barns, Wyllie/Wylie in Kilmarnock
I'm looking for any information at all about the background of Robert J. Barnes (sometimes Barns) and/or his wife Ann (nee Wyllie) who were living in Kilmarnock from the 1840s to the 1860s (I have their entry from the 1861 census, but have not had access to earlier censuses). They, and most if not all of their children, emigrated to Massachusetts in the early 1870s. Robert, an ironworks labourer while in Scotland, was born between about 1818 and 1821 in Scotland or Ireland, of Scottish parents (per US 1880 census). Ann (known as Annie)was born probably in September 1818 in Scotland or Ireland of a Scottish father and an Irish mother. Robert and Annie's children that I know of were Mary C.Barnes, b Sep 1842 Kilmarnock; David Barnes b 1845 Ireland; William Wyllie Barnes b Nov 1846 in Scotland or Ireland; Robert J. Barnes b Feb 1849 Kilmarnock; Hannah Barnes b 1851 Kilmarnock; Hugh W. Barnes supposedly b March 1855 Kilmarnock but I can't trace his birth in the Scottish statutory register; Ann Jane Barnes b 31 Jan 1856 Kilmarnock; James Banks Barnes b 9 Feb 1858 Kilmarnock. I have not yet traced the marriage of Robert and Ann, or any of their parents. I have a good deal of information about later generations which I would be delighted to share.
