Searching for Angus Kirkland, Avonbank farm, Strathaven
« on: Sunday 30 August 09 19:38 BST (UK) »
I'm hoping to learn more about or connect with descendants and relatives of Angus Kirkland, so of William Kirkland and Isabel McColl. Angus lived at Avonbank farm across the road from Craig mill just outside Strathaven, circa 1900.

Any help or details you can provide to help me stitch together my genealogy would be most appreciated.
