John CORMACK was my Gfather's name too. The Origins go back to Wick and Latheron. They were fishermen. This is possibly the same family.

The earliest John CORMACK I know of married Agnes FAIRWEATHER 23 Jun 1762 in Wick and had the Children:

My direct lineage is:
John CORMACK b. 1880, Oamaru, NZL
Alexander Mowett CORMACK, b. 1839,Forse
James CORMACK, b. 1805, Forse, CAI,SCT
Unknown CORMACK spouse SUTHERLAND
I am trying to put together a comprehensive set of family lines and will share what I get. Any histories or Gedcoms would be helpful, specially for the early period.
