Mark Muir

From on Sun, 10 Sep 2006
Hi Elizabeth
I found your site through a google search via Mark Muir and Mary Kirk, I think I may be related to your Mark Muir, his sister, Susan Muir is my gg grandmother, Susan Muir married John McCracken 1848 Riccarton, Ayrshire, and I see Mark Muir married Mary Kirk in 1850 Riccarton, Ayrshire, can you tell me your relationship to Mark Muir ??? I have a 1855 birth to this couple plus the 1851 census, I think another brother, James Muir also migrated to Australia ..........
In my searches in Scotland, I have the 1841 census in Inch, Wigtownshire of the Muir family, it lists Mark Muir they were all from Ireland, do you think we have a connection ???
Here is the 1841 Census in Inch, Wigtownshire of the Muir (Moore Family)
Extracted 1841 Census, Parish of Inch, Wigtownshire, Living next to William McCracken family
Address: Burnultoch, all born in Ireland
James Moore 39 yrs Ag Lab
Margaret Moore 40 yrs
Mark Moore 17 yrs, Ag Lab, Margaret Moore 15 yrs,
Susannna Moore 13 yrs, (my gg grandmother who married John McCracken 1848 Riccarton, Ayrshire)
James Moore 11 yrs, William Moore 9 yrs, Mary Moore 6 yrs, Richard Moore 4 yrs, Peter Moore 1 yr
I might me totally grasping at straws on the Mark Muir connection, but Mark is such an unusual first name for the early 1800's?

Hi Elizabeth, I think I am on the right track with Mark Muir, he is my gg grandmothers brother. The Muirs were from Ireland, lived in Wigtownshire, Ayrshire for a few years before moving to Riccarton, Ayrshire in the late 1840's. My gg grandmother Susan, married John McCracken in 1848 Riccarton, I have the Marriage Banns, and now her brother Mark Muir married Mary Kirk in Riccarton two years later in 1850.
Mark's father was James Muir, born about 1802 Ireland and his wife, Margaret Campbell also born in Ireland. I have these names from Susan's death certificate, 1897, New Cumnock. I have traced three other brothers in Scotland, William, Richard and Thomas.
