Anybody able to enlighten us about the founders of this hall? The story in the family is that an ancestor left money for it but we cannot trace Mc Millans. Is there a big hall anywhere else in the area e.g. Dumfries?

red mail Baillie family
I am seeking information regarding Alexander Baillie born about 1853,who lived in Newton Stewart in the Gertrude Cottage in Cunninghame Terrace from about 1875 to 1885. He was a stone carver, allegedly with some reknown. He may have worked on the statue of the Earl of Galloway in Newton Stewart. His father, John Baillie, also was a stone carver and I believe died in Scotland prior to 1875. I am not sure exactly when John Baillie died or where he is buried. The Alexander Baillie family immigrated to the USA in 1894. Thank you

red mail HARDING and related Families (RUSSELL, McGILL, PULFORD, BAXTER)
Seeking information on HARDING and related familes from Newton Stewart area. The following information has been gleaned from notes kept in a scrapbook by my wife's grandfather John Harding of Newton Stewart. This John was descended from a John Harding who came to the area from Devon in 1788. He was a shoemaker and came to Bargaly Mansion in 1811. In 1814 he married a Margaret Russell also of Bargaly Farm. Their son William married a Hannah McGill. William like his father was a shoemaker and later a postman. The Harding men were postmen in Minnigaff and Newton Stewart up until the 1930's. They were also active as correspondents to the local Ayr Advertiser and Galloway Gazette and librarians at the Newton Stewart Mechanics Institute.
