Postby » Thu Apr 22, 2010 4:51 pm

I am searching for people that may be linked to this family tree.

Donald (?Daniel) BLUE married Ann (? Agnes) GRAY. They were born circa 1750. They lived in Campbeltown and Saddell and he was a sailor.

They had 3 children
1.1. John BLUE b. 6.6.1783. (bp.1783). Baptised at Campbeltown. Mother Ann GRAY.
1.2. Mary BLUE (bp.1785-1862), m.1808 John GILLIES. She was baptised at Saddell, Argyllshire, Scotland. They were married at Erskine, Renfrew, Scotland. Mary died at Kilbirnie, Ayrshire, Scotland.
1.3. Dugald BLUE (1789-1866), m.1813 Elizabeth MONTGOMERY (1787-1856). Her parents were Hugh Montgomery and Mary Thomson. He was baptised at Saddell, Argyllshire, Scotland, and she was born at West Kilbride in Argyllshire. They were married at West Kilbride on 8 Nov 1813 and they died there.

Dugald and Elizabeth's first born was Daniel BLUE, weaver, in West Kilbride. Their first born, John BLUE, came to New Zealand in 1863, aged 20. He was my great grandfather.

Hi Iain

Thanks for your email and photo. It is good have the information on Hugh that I will check is correct in my genealogy information. By the way I have that photo from John Blue Walsh from your line (Boston) who I went to visit a couple of years ago.

Robert Blue and John Blue (my great grandfather) were first cousins. Both left West Kilbride the same year. One to USA and one to New Zealand.

Thanks for your email.
