Robert Strang & Catherine McCan
« on: Saturday 20 January 18 00:24 GMT (UK) »
Looking for any info on Robert Strang and Catherine McCan. No dates for them. Apparently their daughter Janet Strang was born 1793 in Mearns, Refrewshire, Scotland.
Thank you.

Have you looked for their marriage or deaths?

     Carole,
                On Scotlands People, there is a marriage on 2 Mar 1792 of Robert Strang to Katherine McLean at Eastwood.   O.P.R. 562/30 298      I think there is a possibility they may be Janet's parents.

                I found three births from the marriage:

Andrew Strang, born 29 Jun 1807, Mearns to Robert Strang & Ketren McLean.  O.P.R. 571/10 82
James Strang, born 10 May 1812, Mearns to Robert Strang & Ketren McLean.    O.P.R. 571/10 100
James Strang, born 6 Sep 1813, Mearns to Robert Strang & Ketren McLean.      O.P.R. 571/10 105

       I didn't find a birth for Janet Strang.

       It seems likely that the first James died in infancy and so the next child was given the same name.    About Ketren... ???    I still think this could be your Catherine McCan, Janet's mother.
There are no other births in the time period 1792 to 1820 for any child named Strang at Mearns.
I wonder if you have more information about Janet's birth?     Have I overlooked it on Scotlands People or did you see the birth elsewhere?
