as it happens, my stepmother's sister was married to William MacLellan.. Uncle Will had a travelling shop around the area and later they operated from Chestnut Cottage in Eaglesfield. Are yours all Mc's or Mac's ?

Hi Pete..they are McLellans. My great grandfather was James and he died in the first war. The family did live in Eaglesfield but Isabella's husband Alexander was illegitimate and his mother never married so as far as I know there were no siblings but James had 4 brothers and two sisters....
What were Williams parents called?

Hi Karen....I've found the headstone of Isabella and their son. Couldn't locate the others in the old or new cemeteries. There are a number of headstones lying face down in the old section and a lot missing or never erected. Have you got any rough dates for the others? They may be in the Kirk yard or Springkell, Pennersaughs or even Carruthers. Pete
