Hello, I somehow never got a notification when you replyed to me Ostler. But I did get one today... So I'm so sorry for not getting back to you until now. 

I have John Sutherland ? - 1874 wife Esther m.s. Sutherland 1783-1855
Their children were
William 1807-1908
Robert 1809
Hugh 1813-1855
James 1816
Janet 'Jessie' 1817-1891
Ann 1819-1915
George 1821
Alexander 1823

My line is through Hugh who married Barbara Gunn 1814-1855
I've only been able to confirm details about two children Donald 1836 -1914 and Ann 1837-1915.

Donald was my 3rd great grandfather. He was a master shoemaker and married Ann (Annie) Grant 1838-1927. I'm lucky to have a photo of them.

Their daughter Williamina 1868-1958 was my 2nd great grandmother, she married Donald Sutherland 1857-1936. I have confirmed 4 children but they might have had more.

Williamina & Donald's eldest daughter, Annie, went to Canada and married David Bradshaw. She died shortly after their 5th child was born.

Williamina & Donald's youngest daughter, Isabelle "Belle", went to Canada for work. Last-minute she decided to go two months earlier to help her sister's widower and children. She and David were married later that year. Belle and David had five children together and their eldest was my grandfather.
