Would appreciate advice on whether Whiteford is listed in George Fraser
I have Whitefords in Argyll Sco in the 1840s but the census indicates they
were all born in Ireland. Listers to the Argyll board have indicated there
were a number of Whiteford families in Campbeltown involved in fishing and
they were all from Antrim.
Many thanks for any advice.
