Hi Vanessa
Good news! Jean was the sixth child born to Hugh Miller and susanna Duncan. Our ancestor was the first born; James c 29 Nov 1772 also at Scroggs. We have 10 children born. Father Hugh was born 20 sept 1741 at Newton and buried in the Mauchlin churchyard in 1814. He was married on 13 sept 1771 in Mauchlin to Susanna Duncan. Hugh's father was James Millar and Elizabeth Smith who were married 10 Dec 1735 at Sorn. They had 7 children; Margaret b 1737, John b 1738, Hugh b1741,Alexander b1743, Mary b 1746, william b 1750 and James b 1751. Elizabeth was born to John Smith and Mary Shaw at Riccarton on 24 Nov 1714. John and Mary were married Jun 1670 at Riccarton.
Let's see what else we can dig up!

Surnames: McGee, McCracken
I am searching for Kirklands in Sorn. It appears my line goes back to Marion McGee (christened 1743 Sorn) and Hugh KIRKLAND 1742-1786. Their son James KIRKLAND emigrated from Sorn to Kalamazoo, MI. in 1834. James' wife was Ann McCracken.
