I have no info on descendants of generation 3 except John shown here and my ggfather Wm Mccrossan Mcnaught.Thanks for the info on John Park McNaughts death, I was unaware of that.On Wm and Mgts children, I have nothing further (death marriage or whatever) on James, Eliza and William.

Re John , married to Isabella Roy, i am not sure if this family is mine. They stayed at same address on New Street as my grandmother so have made the assumption he is my John, but who knows?

John Park's daughter Margaret signed his birth cert and gave his parents as Walter Park and Janet Milligan, and birthplace Dumfries.

Any information you have to fill in any blanks would be appreciated.(i will be away from my computer for a week, visiting living members of my tree (two generations removed) which is much more fun

A few of the children died in infancy or quite young.
The Roy family is not connected to your own line.

Happy New Year to one and all. For those in Scotland I hope the winds didnt upset your Hogmanay Plans. In Wnnipeg we had a foot of snow but just about everybody was able to get out by evening, although we are still digging out.

Davie, thanks for your interest and help with my McNaughts. I would like any more info you have on them, and you can either email me or post it on TS

I was interested in your note about Elizabeth McCrossan’s death date. I wonder if that’s the same one I found . I ordered a copy of the death certificate but it turned out to be a spinster named Elisabeth McNaught, about the same age as my Elisabeth but definitely not her. Her husband David McN died in 1891 and Elizabeth was alive at that time. What do you think?

McNaughton and Park Families Ayr

Post by DorothyCoe » Sun Oct 14, 2007 12:56 pm

Hi Davie
I came across your post by chance and I see you have details of the McNaughton/Park families,
Finlay McNaughton and Jane Park married in 1856 in Riccarton Ayr, are my gggparents. I think that Finlay's parents were John McN and Ann Stevenson, and that he had a number of siblings, including another Finlay born 1814. My initial research of this line has poor old Ann Stevenson having a child every 2 or 3 years from 1806 until 1831, although it seems as if they didn't all survive, (though I haven't got the length of finding death certificates for all of them.) Can this be right? Or have I mixed up 2 families here?
I' sure you'll be able to set me right.
I'm fascinated also to read that the McNaughtons may have come from Antrim and would like to know more about that too.

David! I hope this may reach you! This is Jenny Blain here, I'm at your cousin Margaret's and we were just talking about you and McNaughts and Kilgours, and I went online to see if I could find a tree for a relative of Margaret who's been asking about her family...
Do you have an updated tree that I can access?
All best wishes, Jenny
