Looking for Whiteford/Wyl(l)ie and Morton from Scotland. James Whiteford (bn May 1826 Ireland) and Jean Wyl(l)ie (bn 16/9/1821 Dunlop Ayr) married in 1847 at Mid Glencraig in Campbeltown. They migrated to Melbourne on the Garland in 1852 with two children. James's parents were Alexander Whiteford and Margaret Kain/Cain. Jean's parents were Thomas Wyl(l)ie,a farmer, and Jean Morton. Thomas and Jean's wedding was around 1809, possibly in Kilmaurs. Jean Morton was the daughter of a George Morton. She was born around 1791 and Thomas around 1787.

James Whiteford's sister Catherine born Ireland abt 1821 married Donald Galbraith/Galbreath of Gigha. I do not think they had any children. They both died in 1890 in Campbeltown, probably in the poorhouse.

Would love to hear from anybody who knows of these families.

Thanks all

Anne Whiteford
