Hello. Firstly, I'd like to say how impressed I am with your Gregg Website.
I am a descendant of Alexander Galbraith b. 1743 Dalmellington and Mary Cool b. 1765. Their children were:
Barbara Galbraith bn 1794 Dalmellington m. Ivie Gregg b. 1795,
James Galbraith bn 1797 Dalmellngton m. Janet Campbell Jamieson (My Gt x 2 Grandparents)
Three other sibblings died either in infancy or early adulthood.
The Galbraith's lived at a farm in Pennyvenie, Dalmellington,

The parents of Alexander (b.1743) were John Galbraith b.1743 and Margaret Gregg b.1724 Ayr, Ayrshire (Margaret Gregg's parents were James Greg(g) and Jane Guthrie.
I am interested in researching the Gregg/Galbraith family connection, as there are at least two family connections that I can see so far.
I was wondering if you can suggest any websites or other material that would be of interest. Recently, I was lucky enough to find a photo of my Gt x 2 Grandfather James Galbraith bn 1797 (Brother of Barbara Gregg nee Galbraith bn 1794)
Kind regards, Lyn Fannin
