I would like to know all the names of Ralph Erskines children, and also
which ones are likely to have descendants.
I have read that he had ten children with Margaret Dewer, 5 sons, 5
daughters, five who died in infancy. He also had 4 sons with Margaret
Simpson, 3 died young, Robert survived
In reading the Erskine-Halcro Genealogy written by Ebenezer Erskine
Scott 1895, it only shows Henry, John, Ebenezer, James and Margaret in
the first group, and also James.
Can anyone help me with the other daughters (and sons) of Ralph as I am
trying to find a connection through to my forebears who lived in
They are Alexander Gollan and Helen Millar who were married at Barony
Lanark in 1804. One of this couple were related to Ralph Erskine, as
family history suggests.
There are a lot of combinations to get me through to my ancestors so I
would appreciate any assistance.
Kind Regards John
