I seem to be missing some of the emails so this
is the first mentioning any CLARK. My emails are
being forwarded to a second address now.
Robert Clark (who married Margaret Edward) had
parents Robert Clark and Anne-Agnes-Margaret
[take your pick!] Brown, who were my direct
ancestors. This information was researched
around 1880 in Montrose and or Arbroath by my
great uncle John Roxburgh Wylie Clark.
I (& he) had no marriage for the William b 1782
who apparently married Isabel Wilkie), so I am
very glad to receive your email with new
information for me! Do you know for sure this
is the correct William chr at Johnshaven, Benholm?
John RW (as I call him) did record Jean-Jane as
married to Robert Welsh (that's the spelling he
used), 1820 Johnshaven. Do you have the parents
now of Margaret Edward?
Did William and Isabel have other children besides
Margaret b 1810? If so, I'd be pleased to have
them, & any other information you have. Thank you.
I guess it looks as though we are connected! So--
I would dearly love to have any other information
going forward from John Grant, their children, and
so on!! Please again! And thanks.
Did William and Isabel live in Stonehaven? And
their children? I hadn't searched around there
for any of my Clarks. I'd concentrated with Benholm,
Bervie, then on to the Montrose area, where many were,
including my Clark grandparents.
Is there any information I can send you? I found
that John RW was quite accurate in his research.
His original chart (about 25' - 30' long) is still
in Edinburgh. I was sent a vast copy of it by
another cousin many years ago.
What country do you live in?

I've been trying to figure out Wm Clark & Isabel
Wilkie for years. All I really knew was that
they were from/lived in the Stonehaven area.
Yesterday, while sifting through my HAY family
Johnshaven ca 1841, who were also in the area
due to their fathers Coastguard employment, I
wandered to the immediate neighbours (as I
always do) and noticed that next door to David
Welch and Ann Hay was a Robert Welch. Robert
turned out to be Davids brother and married to
a Jean Clark! This got me thinking...
Meanwhile, I had noted Robert Clark and Marg
Edward as possible parents to my William Clark,
but never knew for sure. Next I searched for
their children, and sure enough there was a
Jean, and Elizabeth Clark (who appears 1841 in
Robert Welch/Jean Clark residence). Also next
door to David Welch & Ann Hay was Anns' sister,
Mary Hay m James Douglas.
There were other siblings in all these families.
I've only listed the connecting ones.

2- Margaret Clark b 1810 m John Grant
3- Alexander Irvine Grant m 1866 Maggie D Ingram
4- Margaret Clark Grant m 1886 William P Innes b 1865
Wm P Innes and Margaret Clark Grant were my g g/p's
...now, all I have to do is figure out Isabel Wilkie b abt 1792
supposedly KCD d 1844 Stonehaven, bur ABD, and the fact that
Margaret Edwards mother was also a Douglas.
Needless to say, the name "Welch" was often repeated as a middle name.
Always check the neighbours!
