Barbara Kay/McKie new info
« on: Thursday 24 November 16 16:42 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone

My 4x Grt Grandmother Barbara Kay was born on the 7 June 1815 in Crossmichael. I purchased some credits on SP and checked her death cert and it confirmed that her parents were William Kay and Mary Johnstone.

Thank you to Joyful who spotted a birth on the IGI and put me on to the fact that the surname could well have been McKie and indeed that has proven to be the case.

William Kay/McKie was a stone mason.

Now I'm hoping you lovely people may be able to help me locate a marriage for the parents or help locate them on the census in the hope that there will be other family with them so I can learn more and perhaps take them back further.

Many thanks in advance

I should also point out that Barbara married a gentleman named John Fletcher c1840 and I cannot seem to locate that marriage.
