Hi Ruth,

thanks for replying.
I don't know much about my Orrs & Robertsons from Shotts, so if you have anything you're willing to share, I'd be grateful.

All I know for sure is that (my) Elizabeth Orr's parents were Thomas Orr & Margaret Binnie/Binning (from her death certificate). Do you have any of the previous generations? Elizabeth is often missed by the other Orrs because her birth certificate (29 May 1805)names her mother Elizabeth instead of Margaret Binnie.

I also have various Clellands & Anguses from Shotts, and one of my friends has a different Thomas Orr who married a Barbara Clelland.

regards, Jean
