Email from Noel Staley 30 June 2012:

Hi, I've been in touch before re the family of Thomas Greig and Anne Staley, every now and then this couple needle me and I try to dig a bit further, attached are a couple of things that seem to tie the
Greig Hogg family of Muirkirk together. (do you have access to Muirkirk Death Records?).

<http://www.ayrshireroots.com/Genealogy/Records/Post%201855/Ayrshire%201872%20Deaths%202.htm>
Mary Campbell, 21, January 29, 1872 at Muirkirk, Domestic Servant, Single, Illegitimate, Robert Campbell, Nail Maker and Isabella Greig, James Hogg, Cousin.
Muirkirk Deaths.
Noel Staley - .(in brackets are my thoughts as to what they are):
Mary Campbell, 21, January 29, 1872 at Muirkirk, Domestic Servant, Single, Illegitimate, (father) Robert Campbell, Nail Maker and (mother) Isabella Greig, (informant) James Hogg, Cousin

Is Isabella Greig related to Thomas Greig ? a James Hogg is a 2nd. Cousin of Thomas Staley Greig, James lived Main St. Muirkirk, 1893, Informant on T S Greig's Death Certificate.
James is living Main St. Muirkirk, in the 1891 Census, a 47 yo Coalminer, with his family. Possibly James is the son of Thomas/Thomson Weir Hogg and Sarah Greig [P695]
I'd love to sort them all out, no doubt you would too.
Regards, Noel Staley.

The snip below is from the will of Daniel Blyth, of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, written on 10 June 1885: '... of Fifty Pounds to my wifes cousin Thomas Staley Greig of 77 Shamrock Street Glasgow, the sum of Fifty Pounds to my neice Elizabeth Staley... '
I think I've found TS Greig in the 1881 Cenus as Thomas S Greig, Parish: Glasgow Barony; ED: 27; Page: 15; Line: 22; Roll cssct1881_228; I also have seen other references to this TS Greig in a diary of another relative, I have a copy of his death certificate, he died 29 Dec 1893 in Glasgow, aged 76. He did not marry, I have not found any documents re his birth.
Regards, Noel Staley.
NOTE: AUg 2020: Alec Gregg. I have locatedd his birth details from FamilySearch.org < https://www.familysearch.org/tree/pedigree/landscape/9N38-RGF> It states that He was born 22 Dec 1817 in Gasgow, Scotland.and died there in 3 Dec 1893, But I think perhaps he may have born in Muirkirk, Ayrshire as there is no current evidence that his parents were connected to Glasgow
