Hi Elaine


I saw your email to Ann where you say “I am related to the mother way back when. I know nothing of this family”. Do you mean Katherine McEwen as there are a couple of family trees on Ancestry giving some info on her parents and Grandparents.

Katherine did have a brother Archibald McEwan married to Catherine Denny on 1 Feb 1759 Rosneath.
