However, if there wasn't a stone then it would have to be the lair book or the kirk sessions minutes  :-\

I was very lucky to be given access to a whole bundle of info from Parton, which I photocopied in Castle Douglas  :)

My families moved from Kells to Balmaclellan and then to Parton and Castle Douglas. They had all left by the 1860s.

Off the top of my head - Burgess, Wilson, McTaggart, Bell, Spalding, Carson and quite a few more. They ended up in Wales, Canada - from Toronto to Vancouver, US,  NZ, Australia, Malaysia and South Africa.

Hello All,

The Mary Shaw at Arnmacarrie, Balmaclellan, is one of mine.  If calculated correctly, she is my 2nd cousin 5 times removed. Her parents were John Shaw and Mary Shaw.

Regards
Tom Shaw

I'm not sure.

The OPR's have a marriage in Balmaclellan, 15 March 1801.  "George McMinn of the parish of Parton & Mary Shaw of this Parish"

I could only find 5 children, and the forenames don't help.

Trouble now is all church records are with the National Records of Scotland in Edinburgh.
I've enquired with 2-3 churches in Ayrshire regarding burials and got the same answer :- "All our records were sent to Edinburgh"

No family names coming up as middle names with grandchildren etc?

Tom

Hi again
There are some Parish Burials listed in the Dumfries & Galloway FHS book from September 1791 to end of 1854 with a gap from 1826 - January 1851.
I have checked through these burials for the Shaws of Armacannie:
15-8-1798 John Shaw age 60 Married
20-3-1800 David Shaw age 30 Single
18-2-1813 James Shaw age 37 Married.
This looks like Mary's father and two brothers who were listed in the 1792 Census.  Unfortunately there are no McMinn's included in the burials or census.
In the 1792 Census there were three farm properties at Arnmacannie and four Mill properties.

Hi yet again
The following baptisms were recorded at Balmaclellan:
Mary dau of George McMinn and Mary Shaw 2/9/1803
George son of George McMinn and Mary Shaw 19/1/1821
but also at Parton
John son of George McMinn and Mary Shaw 13/5/1815 born 28/4/1815
James son of George McMinn and Mary Shaw 12/1/1806
This would suggest to me that they moved between Balmaclellan and Parton during their marriage.
I should say I found these records on a site called Dusty Docs putting in the country, county and place then selecting Archers software where you can specify names.  I t is based on the family search site.
