Need help to determine if this John Gemmill, b May 1851, emigrated from Fenwick, Ayr (High Gainford Farm) between 1887 (when his last child was born in Scotland) and 1891 (when he is not on the Scotland Census). He married in January 1884 Janet Montgomerie of Stewarton and they had 3 children born in Fenwick, i.e. Andrew, James, and Martha, before he vanishes from view. He was likely accompanied by his older brother Andrew Gemmill, b approx 1836, who farmed adjacent to him and is also m.i.a. after John's wedding. Andrew was unmarried at that time. There is even a third brother James Gemmill, a year older than Andrew, who may have emigrated prior to them. I am thinking Australia or NZ, but it could also be Canada or the US. Any help on Emigration records would be much appreciated, or maybe someone recognizes these people.
