have a look at Inscription 44 : Kirkandrews Churchyard on the kirkyards site

it is the MI for William Houstain and Marrion Carson erected by their sons Andrew, David† and William and also includes Andrew and his wife Jannet Bryce who are the grand-parents of Mary Houstone

I also have an Agness Kennah born 21 Apr 1796 in Borgue, Father Thomas Kennah who may be part of the family,

but I cant find any details for either Thomas or Elizabeth, being children of Thomas McKennay (or one of the many variants) and Mary Houstone, could you post some information if possible please

Hello again,†

If you search on the OLD familysearch IGI and enter the info below, it should pop up (I copied the details below).† The Alexander info was interesting... and I have yet to check if James McKennay's twin brother Alexander (born Sept. 1, 1789) passed away prior to 1794.... I have run across this with other families where the name is used again, if a child passes away.

I typically use origins.net to access the IGI listings (it links to the NEW IGI) and have gotten different results from when I use the old IGI so typically I check both now.† Agness Kennah (thanks for that!) and other sibs. came up when I entered the same Kinnay/Houston info on the origins.net site but not the Kinnay info...???† †To date, I haven't sent a msg. to FamilySearch but it has happened a few times....

Do you have any suggestions where I can search for MI info for Thomas Kinna/Mary Houston if it is not on the kirkyards site????

Cheers,
Creekside

you may also find the following site useful, although as with all things online donít believe everything you read

 http://i-83-67-41-189.freedom2surf.net/fam/fam03023.html

but the dates it gives, which I have checked on Scotlands people are pretty much correct.

we have pretty much gone off the original topic here, but the other thing that is hard to cope with is the amount of Houstons which seem to marry Jollys, and it is becoming very difficult to work out family groupings

I'm afraid not and I suspect that one might not actually exist, it may be worth starting a separate thread on that specific topic, in case another person has easy access to MI books

I now think that this is incorrect and that the MI

from Monumental Inscriptions at Kirkandrews Old Kirkyard

Inscription 35
Erected by Samuel Houstan in Carleton in memory of Barbra Cowan, his spouse, who died Sept'r 25th 1791, aged 72 years. Also here lyes the corpse of the said Samuel Houstan, who died March the 23d 1793, aged 78 years. Also here lies Barbara Jolly, spouse to James Houstan of Bridgend of Killdarroch, who departed this life 13th August 1811, aged 59 years. The said James Houstan, who died at Bridgend, 3rd Febíy 1831, aged 78 years.

confirms it

Familysearch also has the following

parents:   Samuel Huston,​ Barbara Coan
   
name:   James Huston 07 May 1752  BORGUE, KIRKCUDBRIGHT, SCOTLAND

sorry for any confusion

Thanks for the clarification.  It's nice to share info but it will take me a few weekends to get the new family added to my tree :) 

Thanks also for you suggestion to do a new post about my  MI search for Thomas Kinna/Mary Houston so I will add that to the weekend list. 

Bye for now,
Creekside

Agree, Ian. This was found in the early posts but the thread seems to have moved on  somewhat.
