Hi Steve , Brian Bell was my very first contact, thanks to him I got started. One of my Kerrs married into Joseph Kerrs family , mine farmed at Terregles , Josephs were the blacksmiths at Terregles. I have been researching for over three years now and have accumulated lots of information about our Kerrs and families we have married into. I must say I have been given help by many generous people. Regards stoop.

I am still planning a trip to Scotland, but it won't be this year.  I actually have several Kerr's that married into my lines.

The first is Margaret Kerr who married James Hunter.  The only information I have on them is they had a daughter, Agnes Hunter b. abt. 1818 and d. 1904 Majoribanks, Lochmaben.  She married John Green b. 1825 d. 1889 Queen St., Lochmaben.  Agnes and John had a son, James Green b. abt 1846 and d. 16 Oct 1915, Lochmaben.  James married Elizabeth Tweedie b. abt 1843 Lochmaben, daughter of John Gibson Tweedie and Phillis Steele.

The second is Agnes Kerr, dau of George and Margaret (Irving) Kerr b. abt 1854 Scotland and d. 1885 Illinois, USA.  She married Thomas Charles Tweedie, son of Thomas Tweedie and Agnes McGowan, b. 9 Ded 1854 Dalton Parish and d. Abt 1918, Boston Massachusetts.  I have a beautiful 8X10 photo of Agnes and Thomas on their wedding day.

Now, the above mentioned Agnes McGowan's mother was Jane/Janet Kerr, daughter of James Kerr and Janet Neilson.  Jane Kerr was b. 1807 Dalton and d. 11 Nov 1881 at Whitecroft Farm, Dalton.  She married William McGowan b. 1790 Kelton, Kirks.  He was the son of William McGowan and Mary Hannah.  Jane's father, James Kerr was b. abt 1781.

So here are a few of the Kerr's I have.  I have the families children also and will post them next.

Hello Brenda,
My William was born 1834 in Dalton.His father was James Kerr born 1794 in Mouswald.William's grandfather was John Ker,christened 1764 in Dalton.John was married to Jean Tweedie who was from Banks,Mouswald.Maybe we tie in somewhere?
Bye,Stephen

Hi, Cousin!  I am descended from John Kerr (1756-1843) and Jean Tweedie (1768-1841) myself, through their firstborn son, John (1786-1843) and his wife Agnes(s) Johnston(e) (1803-1869).  The wonderful people on RootsChat have been exceptionally helpful in tracking down my Kerr ancestry in Dumfriesshire.

WOW,,,,another cousin!!!  This is so exciting.  My Kerrs all married into the Tweedie line.  I have an extensive Tweedie genealogy, in part I did the research, and I also inherited my aunt's genealogy when she became unable to continue it herself.  I noticed the name BELL mentioned in an earlier post.  I also have Bell from the same area.  Guess I wondered which line to work on next,,,,think I know now which one,,,lol.

I have traced my Tweedies back to the Barons Drumelzier, but do not have strong source documentation for a couple of connections after the Tweedies forfeited their barony to the Hays of Yester, so I would be very interested in comparing notes with you.

I also have a Bell line that I've made little progress with.  My great-great-grandfather, David Kerr (1828-1890) was married to Mary Bell, born 29 March 1826 in Branetrig.  She was the daughter of James Bell (1787-1875) and Helen Neilson  (b. 1796).  James Bell's father appears to have been another James Bell, born c. 1760, but that's as far as I've gotten.    Also, my James Tweedie (1727-1800) was married to a Janet Bell (1742-1808), but I've been unable to determine her parents.

If you're amind to research either of those lines further, perhaps we could work together and share some of the time and costs of perusing the ScotlandsPeople database -- after exhausting what might already be posted here on RootsChat, of course!
