Speirs of Kilmarnock, Ayrshire

Classification: Query
Surnames: Speirs, Walker, McLachlan
George Speirs shoemaker b.abt. 1818 in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire (parents James Speirs and Christina McNair), died Glasgow Sept.1878. Married in 1838 Ann McLachlan (also spelt McLaughlan/d) b.abt 1820 also in Kilmarnock, who died 1884 in Glasgow. They had several children, and I'm looking for descendents of James born 1849 who became missionary clergyman and went to (then British) Guiana where daughters Annie, Mary and Christina were born, son James born Glasgow, all to first wife Susan Walker of Maybole who we believe died in Guiana after 1888. Revd.James died 1904. He had a brother Archibald born about 1861 who had a family with Elizabeth Cumming Patrick who he married in 1887. Mary Walker Speirs was my husband's grandmother,who spoke about stepmother (Helen Mackintosh of Rothesay, Bute) who James married in 1897 on Bute. Are any living relatives out there please?
