The information that was given to me by Donald McLatchie of Jefferson Texas states that this Robert McLatchie was born Jan. 28, 1789 at Old Cumnock, Ayrshire and died June 7, 1847 in Grenville County Ontario. He was married to Jean or Jane Hunter, born March 29, 1793, daughter of Andrew Hunter and Janet Spiers or Speirs, and died April 11, 1867 in Grenville County Ontario. Robert was the son of John Mclatchie born 1737 at Ayshire and died August 1797 at Old Cumnock Ayrshire. John was married to Janet Crawford in Feb 1770 at Old Cumnock. Janet was born 1750 and died 1800. There were 8 children from this union. I am descended at least twice from the union of Robert McLatchie and Jane Hunter. My paternal line comes from their son Thomas and my maternal line comes from their son James. If you have any history of the McLatchie family while still in Scotland, I would appreciate it. Especially any clan or tartan information.
