Hi,
Checked in LDS for the birth of Nicholas Cairns.
Found a match
born  SEP 1806   Kirkcudbright, Kirkcudbright, Scotland
 Parents Robert CAIRNS and Mary HANNA

Couldn't find a marriage for this couple though.


The problem you will have with this one is because the marriage of Nicholas took place before 1845 there will probably be no image on scotlands people for you to view so you will not be able to prove if this is the right parents that way. Perhaps if you ask someone to check the BVRI (Britih Vital Record Index) Her marriage  may be showing there and perhaps her parents too.

Good Luck

Hello!

I am researching this particular family and am actually taking a trip from the US to Scotland this summer, partially just to visit Kirkcudbright.  I am very curious about the information you posted on the headstones from the Kirkcudbright cemetery.  I have never found a formal transcription of that cemetery and was wondering if you had access to one or if you had personally noted these.  If you have any information, I would really appreciate finding out anything that you know.  I'm hoping to visit the cemetery and take pictures of the headstones if I can find them.  I'm also interested in Bairds from Kirkcudbright if you would know anything about them.

Thanks
