Re: Currie / McVurich - please help

Hi Chris

You can find other children of this family in the births pages of the late  Ted Larson’s pages which are linked through Steve Gilchrist’s webpages on Rootsweb.


As their youngest was born in 1872, you will probably be able to search for High and Euphemia’s deaths on Scotlandspeople website.  As they would be statutory death records (1855 onwards), they will give you the parents names.


Good luck

Hello everyone,


I am hunting down a McDougall/Currie link, and I am wondering if any of you might have these people in your respective trees, plus further information.


Euphemia (Effie) Currie married Hugh McDougal at Kilmeny in 1855, and they had a daughter named Anne in 1860. There might be other children, I am not sure.


The other items I am not sure of are Hugh's parents and Effie's parents. As everyone well knows, the number of McDougalls and Curries on Islay makes this extremely difficult to follow. My own Jura McDougalls went to Islay in the 1840s, also muddying the waters a bit.


Any information, or leads for me to research further, that you may have regarding Hugh, Euphemia (Effie) and their children would be greatly appreciated.


Many thanks and all the best,

Anne, that's great that you & Janet have confirmed links & solidified some connections.

I have to climb out of the tree for a bit as I have other commitments looming. Happy hunting to all~
