McWilliam Downie
Catherine MCWILLIAM, my first cousin 4 times removed, b. Leswalt abt 1843 to John MCWILLIAM and Catherine MCKIE, married Samuel DOWNIE in Little Larbrax, Leswalt in 1864. The couple's first child, William McWilliam Downie, was born 11 Feb 1865, also in Leswalt. After that, I can find no trace of the couple, and think they may have emigrated. But where did they go? Would much like to contact, and share information with, anyone descended from these families.
