Also, there is a family tree on a/try that you could check (you need a subs to view it www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/person/tree/28350218/person/12037695199/facts?ssrc=

They show another potential sister called Jane/Jean (common first name variants) born c. 1794 in Glencairn. Jane is listed as having married twice, a Joseph Milligan and then an Alan Burgess.
Her death is showing as being on 19 Dec 1878 in Balmaclellan, Kirkcudbrightshire.

No details on her parents included unfortunately  :-\

Not sure how you can verify that these two women, Margaret and Jane, are sisters to your William. Sometimes occupation on a death cert for a father can help. If it shows as agricultural labourer...not a lot of comfort there really  ::)

Thank you for that information. I have seen this Margaret come up in a few searches that i have done. I think that she may well be William's sister. Will have to look into her history and see if it matches his, then maybe I can find a bit more info on their parents.
Thank You
Tracy
