Thank you so much everyone who is helping me, the genealogy community is incredibly generous. I started a year ago and hadn't heard any of these names and now I know so much about them.
Jocelyn, You are right, I realised that I had my generations muddled as soon as I sat down in the train and read the notes. It is still a real clue as to what the family connection to Lochwinnoch is. Thank you for all of this information, after I have caught up on a mountain of paperwork from being away I will go on Scotlands People and fill in the gaps. I haven't found newspaper articles before and it is very exciting, I didn't know that that would be possible. I have been using Ancestry but not found anything in Ireland before so I need to work out what I am doing. I know I keep saying thank you but I mean it, I am loving all of this and wouldn't have got as far without all the help.
