OPR STRAITON: 'John lawful son to John Greig and Mary McCulloch in Munteoch baptised 14th April 1798.' Again the surname has now changed to GREIG.
John married Margaret McNab in 1833 and produced three children. Margaret and her baby daughter Margaret, the last child, died within a few days of the birth. John remarried to Mary McGaan in 1840 but an illegitimate child[Ivie Gregg] was born to a John Gregg and Agnes Bone in 1839. This may have been a child to this John Gregg between marriages. The boy appears to have been 'adopted' or 'sponsered' by the Murray family with whom he lived into his twenties.
