Looks like him,  Monica  :)

He was already away from home by 1841 by the looks of it!

I'm sure that this is the correct family. I've only followed David so far. Haven't checked the Janet/Jess(ie). Also can't find a death of Samuel, snr - although allegedly alive in 1856.

Marriages:
GILLESPIE, John - M26/4/1849 - At the Hill, by Creetown, on the 26th ultimo, by the Rev. John Muir, Mr John Gillespie, ship carpenter, to Miss Jessie Templeton.

Added: Actually, not sure if this has any bearings, just seen there is a Janet Templeton, 23 at home with Samuel and Catherine in 1851

Worth investigating but she was at home with her mother and possible 1 year old daughter in the 1851 - see above  :-\

However, you might have just given me some info with that link, Monica  :D

Death of an Agnes Porter just below. I wonder if it's my Jean's Aunty  :)

Yes thanks - I use  and recommend it often. It's a great site!

The person who did do the Wigtown pages used to put them up on the Rootsweb board at regular intervals in the old days - I used to look out for my families  :)

Thanks all for your help, much appreciated! 

Just an update, I have found the death records for Jessie, David and William Templeton - all with parents Samuel and Catherine.  I have been unable to find brother John's death record and Samuel senior's as yet.  Mother Catherine appears to have died 1851-1854, unsure as to where.  David and William died in Ayrshire and Jessie in Glasgow.  It states on Jessie's record that she was buried in Troon.  Maybe the rest of the family are buried there too.  Any help with Troon MI's would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Caroline  :)

It might be worth starting a new thread on the Ayrshire board requesting MI look ups in Troon.
