My great-grandmother was Ann Marshall MUIR, b1858 Ireland. Her parents were
John MUIR and Jean MARSHALL.
Jean Marshall (b. 1821, Bellshill, Glasgow) was the daughter of David
MARSHALL and Jean SMELLIE who were married 1814 in Shotts, Lanarkshire,
Scotland I don't know anything about Jean Marshall's husband, John Muir,
except that he was dead by the 1881 Scotland census, and that his name
appears on his widow's mourning card in 1915.
Ann Marshall MUIR, married Robert GREIG in 1882 In Holytown, Lanark.,
Scotland. Robert Greig was born about 1854, Ireland, the son of Robert
Greig and Jane HUGHES.
I'd like to know if anyone recognizes any of these individuals either in
Ireland or Scotland. The common given names and surnames make research
difficult. When I interviewed my grandmother and her children about their
family history I didn't hear any mention that her family had ever been in
Ireland or had ancestors in Ireland though both her parents, Ann Muir and
Robert Greig, were born there. I assumed they were born in Scotland until I
researched the census records in the UK. It would appear that their stay in
Ireland was brief based on census and BMD records.
Please contact me if you can know anything about these families.
