Catherine Tate Scott born about 1803 in Kirkudbright
« on: Sunday 21 November 10 01:42 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I am researching my husband's g-g-g grandmother, Catherine Tate Scott...she married Campbell McCay on Dec 24, 1821 and she and her husband immigrated to Mississippi USA in 1823...I have possible name of her mother as Elizabeth, dying in Antrim Belfast in 1841...nothing on her father.  Catherine is buried in Wintergreen Cemetery in Port Gibson, Mississippi (d. June 26, 1871) with Kirkudbright as her birthplace noted on her tombstone.  Anyone have any clues about Catherine's family?  Thank you!  Joanne

Hi Woodydog...thank you for trying to find some information on our Kirkcudbright family...please excuse my slow response...partly due to the 'colonies' celebration of Thanksgiving but mostly due to my confusion!  Family members seem to insist that Catherine and Campbell were married in Kirkcudbright...I see that 90 percent of documents say that Campbell was born in Ireland, as were the first several children of the couple (rest born in Mississippi, USA)...rumor was the family originated in Scotland, then went to Ireland to start a linen business, then emigrating to the southern US...Catherine Tate Scott McCay's tombstone states that she was born in Kirdkudbright in 1803 but could that even be suspect?  I am trying to attach a photo of her stone fyi...anyway, should you have any ideas for me to investigate further, I'd be grateful.  Joanne

Hi Joanne
 I've just had a quick look on Scotlands People for births in Kirkcudbright all Parishes for 1803  it throws up 2 females named SCOTT but when I added Catherine and variations of spelling it comes back 0, that isn't to say she wasn't born there but she doesn't appear in the Parish Records that are on SP. THere were Scotts in the area as I have a Jane Scott married to James Rigg in my tree born around 1760s at a guess
