Thanks for replying!

My family are from Robert Sutherlands second marriage to Janet Gunn.

I haven't done any research for ages so that is all the info I have at the moment - do you have any more info on Roberts parents/grandparents? I'd be very interested.

Please email me.

Hi - I have been researching my husband's family for a short period. He was born in Greenock - grandmother Jane Gunn Docker (nee MacKellar) 1906-1990. Her parents were Archibald MacKellar & Jane Gunn Davidson McKenzie b. 1871 Watten. Jane's parents were James McKenzie b. 1841 Latheron m at Bower 1862 to Euphemia Mowat.
James' parents were George McKenzie b. 1775 Latheron & Helen McIvor - going back to aAlexander McKenzie m Elizabeth Sutherland at Watten 1766.
Euphemia's parents were Alexander Mowat b. 1804 Lyth & Isabella McAdam b. 1808 Watten. Isabella's mother was Jean Gunn b.1782 - leading back to John Gunn b.1698.
I think we must connect somewhere!!

With all these Latheron Sutherlands appearing,
does anyone have in their research a
Catherine Sutherland - she married before 1778 to a Robert Campbell.
Their son William CAMPBELL b1781 m Barbara GUNN b 1788 daughter of
Alexander Gunn and Helen Donaldson who married abt 1780.
