Hi Debbie: Did your Kirkwoods come from Toll cross, Shetteleston area?

Hi,
I'm afraid I don't have much on the Kirkwoods. 
My James Stewart, born abt. 1909 Duntocher, married Ina Williamina Kirkwood.
James was the son of William Stewart and Flora Murray.  I would love to find out more about Ina, if you recognize her?

Hi,

I have just recently started researching my family tree and this is the 1st time that i have been on this website.

My maternal grandfather was a Mochan from Duntocher, his father John Mochan (married to Catherine McGlinchey) was born in Duntocher in 1878.  His father Michael (married to Mary O'Donnell) was born in Ireland in 1843.
Mochan - Duntocher
Hamill - Duntocher

Hi Mk,
Boy was I happy to read your post!  John Mochan was my Granny, Mary Mochan's brother.  I don't know a lot about him, apart from the fact that he was a widower when he married Catherine McGlinchey.  My grandfather Michael Joseph (Joe) Cuthbertson was a witness at the marriage of John & Catherine.

I just noticed ... one of your other surname interests is Hamill.  Is that Hugh Hamill/Annie Mochan?

Hi mk,

I see Cousin Helen has replied to you already! 
Welcome to the Rootschat forum, I bet you never thought you would find family on your first visit here?  :)

The Mochan's are collateral line to mine.  I am related through Helen's maternal line - the Stewarts.

Are you still in Scotland mk?

Hi Helen & Debbie,

I was amazed when I read the replies to my 1st posting.   Especially as I was starting to feel as if I had hit a brick wall.

I have traced 5 brothers and sisters to John - Ellen, Patrick, Annie, Dennis, Mary (your grandmother), and John I think is the youngest.  Do you know of anymore.

Here also comes the family scandal that I have uncovered - the Hugh Hamill, Annie Mochan connection - They are my great grandparents as my grandfather and grandmother were 1st cousins (my grandfather is the son of John and my grandmother is the daughter of Annie).
Mochan - Duntocher
Hamill - Duntocher
Simpson - Dunbar Haddingtonshire
Craigen - Kinning Park
