    Someday I hope to hear from a local Anderson or Christie. My ancestors left Kill in 1799. I would welcome any responses.

    Hello I am descended from Gilbert Christie and Mary McMartin. Gilbert was born in Tirarthur in 1737. His parents were John Christie and janet McIver.
    Gilbert drowned with 6 of his children in a drowning accident in 1794 at Ledcharry, near Killin. One of the surviving children was my 4xg grandmother, Catherine Christie.
    I have details of all the siblings if that is of any interest.
    I also have info re a janet Anderson b1765(daughter of Alexander Anderson and Janet Scot) who married Gilbert Christie. ….. could that be the right family? One of their children married one of catherines children ….

    Hello – Are your Christies from Western New York or Ontario?

    Yes, mine came to western New York then left for Ontario after twenty or so years. John Christie, son Hugh, and daughter Margaret left Killin area between 1799 and 1802. I suspect they were tennant farmers. I dounbt if they owned land in Scotland.

    Hello Boyd/Val,
    My gg grandmother was Janet Mccallum married Malcolm Christie in Killin 1838. Malcolm’s father was GILBERT CHRISTIE (my ggg grandfather) who married JANET ANDERSON. Looks like the above thread is my family. My Gilbert’s father & mother were most likely MALCOLM MCGILCHRIST (AKA CHRISTIE) & LEWISSA CAMPBELL. Any information would be appreciated. There are no marriage records between 1717 & 1782 in Killin which makes research really challanging. Luckily they all had heaps of children! My email address is morisimc@xtra.co.nz
