I am trying to track down relations of John McCLURE and Agnes FRASER (aka FRIZEL). Their son, Alexander 1792-1876 married 1st Jane FORTAY and 2nd Catherine CUMMINGS (1798-1890). My husband is the great-great-great grandson of Alexander and Catherine via their son, James (1839-1880) who migrated to Australia.
Other children I know of for John and Agnes are: David (1795-1872)married Jane SHENNAN, John (abt 1796-?) married Mary DONNAN, Agnes (1797-1874) married William STEWART, Peter (1799-?) and Elizabeth (1802-1891) married John PATERSON.
