Hi, I am trying to find some early information on my gg grandparents, James Kennedy (1783-1861) and Grizel (Grace) Campsie (1788-bef1871). They immigrated to Canada (Ontario) in abt 1856, with 4 of their 5 sons and their 2 daughters along with their children's spouses and grandchildren. My Greatgranfathers gravestone is marked "a native of Cargill, Perthshire, Scotland". If anyone has any information on this branch of my family it would be much appreciated!
Hi Iain,I am planning a trip t Glasgow to find the final resting place of my grandmother and her daughter,She was Minnie Jane Hart age 36 died may 1910.She lived at 47 North St Whiteinch Partick. Glasgow with her husband Charles and three sons They were Irish but travelled to Scotland to find work.It is my understanding that the local church of Scotland had no burial ground so what I suppose I need is address of local municipal cemeteries which were active in 1910.Hope you can help Jim Hart
Thanks for that Iain, I visited a relative today and we managed to find out that there was a connection in Inch but that gives us a lot more information. Would the Burns Monument Centre in kilmarnock be able to assist me in finding where my great grandparents would be buried if I have their name and date and place of deathbr /> Joyce
I have just started to research my maternal family tree. My grandfather was Samuel Kennedy, Kilmarnock born 12/3/1883 married 1/1/1913 died 30/6/1947(buried in Grassyards Rd Cemetery Kilmarnock). His father was Samuel Kennedy born 1852 in Ireland. His wife was Jane ( Hume or Hughes) born 1854 in Ireland. I am unsure where my great grandparents are buried - may have been Riccarton Cemetery or Grassyards Rd too. There has been some mention of relatives in Maybole. Do you have any information that couls be related or point me in the right direction.
