STALKERS OF WEST KILBRIDE, AYRSHIRE
Posted by: Alan Stalker Date: January 17, 2002 at 10:29:36
  of 368

Looking for help filling in a few blanks/extending lines. Perhaps some of the following will help others. All events are in West Kilbride.

CHILDREN OF GILBERT STALKER AND JANET MITCHELL

1. JOHN STALKER christened June 16 1793. He was a tailor, listed as such in Pigott's Ayrshire Directory 1837. Died 1876. I believe his grandson, JOHN, married ELISABETH BLUE December 31, 1857. I can find 2 of their children - ELISABETH born October 30 1858 and JOHN born December 9 1864.
2. MARY STALKER christened May 25, 1795.
3. DANIEL STALKER christened February 11 1798.
4. NEIL STALKER (probably my GGGG Grandfather) christened August 24, 1800.

At this point there is a gap of one generation until:

5. MALCOLM STALKER born December 30 1866. Married CATHERINE McMILLAN in 1895.
