The joys of genealogy indeed  ;) It's what keeps us for ever hooked!

Why don't you post what you have on your direct line - William Shaw born c. 1810 maybe Kells, so we can all focus on him.

Gadget, you are so good on this County because of your lines (no pressure, promise  ;)).

Let's have another look around with you Tom and see if we can find anything new for you.

Gadget,

Was your 3x great grandfather, William Shaw, who had a brother Robert who died in Canada in 1865?

It's just that you mention his writing to his brother in Canada.

Not a lot in the letter - written 1835 but he's talking about events of 1833-35:

Mr  Shaw  of Drumrash* referring all to Park Robens ......   and then something vague about a marriage of 'Shaw' to ?. This letter written 1835.

Will check the Balmaclellan MIs -maybe tomorrow now. Are there any other surnames beside Shaw? Will look at Urr, Girthon, etc. too. 

Sloan seems familiar. I've not looked at this branch for a few years so will have to get back to you when I've dug it all out  :)

PS -* Drumrash would be Parton, I think

Hi Gadget,

If checking Balmaclellan, I am also interested in Lorimer.  my 4x great uncle, George Lorimer born 1803 at Penpont, married Margaret Lorimer born c1806 at Balmaclellan, at Balmaclellan in 1832.  She and George died at Kirkland, Dalry, Kirkcudbrightshire.  Her parents were William Lorimer, born c1768, died 1842 at Walkhill of Holm, and Ann Callander 1763-1840.

Re William Shaw and Catherine Lorimer, the William Shaw who married Sarah Lorimer, had a brother Robert, who died at Brantford, Canada West in 1865.  So I will have a look there.

Thank you Gadget and Monica for all your help and assistance with this.
Greatly appreciated.

Tom

Thanks Gadget, for the info from Kells MI's on the Shaw family from Park Robin.  The only other MI from Kells I have regarding Shaw is one regarding Shaw from High Park, Balmaclellan.
