trying to help, I've also posted a request to find out if anyone knows what's happened to Wul's website.

Try the search box at the top of the screen and type in 'westerkirk archibald graham' you might be able to find some info or google 'westerkirk archibald graham 1750 maybe the MI is posted some where else

If you could repost this as a jpg I can import this into Adobe Photoshop and see if I can use some filters and get this sharper and clearer and respond to you -- happy to do this for you  :) :)

Ev,

Excellent deduction...yes Corriemain, I think that's the right track...it would make sense since there was a hint awhile ago from a post about Agnes, William's wife coming from that area...hmmm...need to do some more investigative work!...much appreciated...It could be based on my grandfather's letter...his english in the letter was a puzzle as at first I thought was he 'illiterate'...the language was quite unusual....thanks again!...I will get to the bottom of this yet!

Grahamhunter,

I'm starting to believe that William Graham and Agnes Byers had two children named George based on your information

Grahamhunter / Razzy,

Here's who is in my family tree:

William Graham (1743-1820) married Agnes Byers (b. 1741 or 1742) my ggggg grandparents
children of William and Agnes:
  John Graham Torthorwald (1765)
  Helen Graham Torthorwald (1771)
  James Graham (1771-May 8, 1855) m Isobella Borthwick (1767-1848) - my gggg grandparents
      children of James and Isobella
          Agnes  (1807) m Adam Edgar (1817)
          James  (?)
          Alexander (1809-1873) m Agnes Tidman (1811-1877)
          John Graham (1799-1866) m Helen Thompson (1802-1874)
          Isabella (Isbel) (1797-1870) m Thomas Hope (1800-1877)
          William Graham (1804-1880) m Hannah Bell (1804-1874) my ggg grandparents
  George Graham Knockmains (1775) m Margaret Peggy Reives
      children of George and Margaret
         William Knockmains (1806)
         Margaret Westerkirk (1808-1880)
         Agnes Netherknock (1810)
         Helen Netherknock (1812)
  Sarah Graham Torthorwald (1777-1855) m. Patrick Byers (1778-1850)

The full tree is at Ancestry (including my gg grandfather George Lindsay Graham's full family, and the rest of the tree), still searching to find out if William Graham's (b 1743) father is James Graham born in 1711.

Looby,

My apologies!....I laughed so hard after I hit post!...I think I was "Loopy" last nite.  Thank you for the information...I'll definitely follow up on your suggestion.  I started thinking about this last nite and I thought my great-grandfather's letter mentioning 'Kareymore' may have just meant that William was in 'Kareymore' before traveling down to Canonbie and meeting Hannah Bell and marrying her.  I would suspect that work was difficult to find in those times and that people traveled quite a bit.

Thanks again!

Sandy
