Hi,
I've been working on and off for some years on the Gavin Milligan who married Mary McCoskry family and have never been able to find Mary's parentage. Her age varies in the census and she seems to have been born 1804-1807.
I'm interested that Marjorie says that she descends from Samuel.Do you have a record of her birth or parentage somehow ?
Although many of her children with Gavin were born in Kelton, she gave her birthplace as Twynholme.

This sent me to parish registers where I found the following entries for Twynholm:
1782      Nathaniel   son   Alan McCoskre      Twynholm
1784      Samuel   son   Alan McCoskre      Twynholm
1786      Busby   son   Alan McCoskre      Twynholm
1796      Alan   son   Alan McCoskre      Twynholm

Sadly the records for later seem to have been absent.

So these christian names seem to tie across to the ones which you have all found and I offer them in case it helps.

cheers

I have a copy of Mary's death record from Scotland's People which shows her father as Allan Coskrie and her mother as Margaret Herries which more or less ties on to the tombstone in Tongland.

Marjorie,

Many thanks.
I have her Mary Milligan (nee McCoskrie) death as March 4th 1876 aged 70 years. Is that the right one ?
For some reason I obviously didn't see the whole thing as I have no note of her parents from that record.

Do you have similar info for Gavin Milligan by any chance ? and from which of their children does your husband descend ?

best wishes,
Winchat
