Re: Meikle, Ayrshire to Lachute, QC. 1830

My Meikle line comes from Ayrshire Scotland and includes William Meikle (Muckle) born 26 July 1795 in Kirkmichael, Ayr, Scotland. His children and wife came to America as Mormon converts and settled in Utah. His children are Robert Meikle, Isabelle Meikle and James Meikle. Willam's father is Gilbert Muckle and William's siblings(Muckle)are Mary, Helen, Elizabeth, John, David, Jane, Agnes and James. William was the youngest in the family. I am unsure why the family changed their name from Muckle to Meikle.

William left Ayrshire at some point and moved to Glasgow - getting married in Glasgow in 1834 to Margaret Jessie Jackson. He died in Parkhead, Lanark, Scotland.

I don't know if this is any help. If one of these names is familiar I can send you a GEDCOM file of this line. I would appreciate any information you have about Meikle's in Ayrshire or Lanarkshire.
