Sandra,
Just a shot in the dark. My ggm, Janet Speirs (b)1813 (m) John Marshall. Her f & m were James Speirs (b)1787 & Mary Dunlop (b) 1788. James f & m were John Speirs & Isobel Laurie (no b or d dates) They were supposedly from Paisley & Glasgow but could have been from Sterling County as it is just north of Renfrew & Lanark Cos. Janet's brother James was of some note. He was a shall maker to the Queen and built Speirs Field in Paisley. It is a very large stone house that the last relative there, Liz Patterson, willed to the city for an old folks home. I have been trying to push this line back for over 50 years. No luck
Ken
