Hello Gadget
Sorry for being so rude and not getting back sooner. Yes this information was really useful, although I did have some of it already but the confirmation that I was on the right track was great for me;D
The problem seems to be linking Joseph Steele and Jean Clinkscails elder children to the younger ones. I know that many women had children over a period of 20-30 years and would be grandmothers and mothers in the same year. There is no parish record for a birth/christening for Phillis, so her year of birth is a rough estimate based on Census Returns and her Death Certificate.
One question, do you know where I would find the records for Dumfries Jail in 1851? There is a Joseph Steel listed there in the 1851 Census. I would also like to know if he died in Jail before 1855. ??? 
Thanks for all your help

Hi Lesley

My 3 x grt was in Kirkcudbright jail in 1832. I managed to get the charge and release documents for him. I was living a long way from there at the time and paid a local researcher to get them for me.

The documents might be in The Ewart library:

Give them a ring as they are very helpful.

You seem to know more about family trees than me but I'm always happy to help a fellow genealogist. Just let me know what info you need.
