Hello,

I am new to this forum from Alberta Canada, and find that I am also looking for the same James Barton (Burton), and Margaret McLuckie information.
He is also my 3rd Great Grandfather.
I have various theories for who the reclusive James is. I am not sure if you have found any further information on them as I see this post is fairly old.

I am on ancestry and am currently awaiting my DNA results. I had thought of using someone to assist, but I saw the fee on Ancestry and that thought went out the window.

Hello CDNB and [TS_welcome]

Although this is an old post, Stewie is a regular on Talking Scot -- you're in luck! I'm sure he'll get back to you soon.

Best wishes,

Hello CDNB
I am afraid the Barton in America bit was due to reading a census incorrectly it was a listing above that had the America bit.
I will get back to you soon as it is early in the morning here where I live and the brain still wants to sleep

Hi there,

Thanks for your response.

I did find a census 1841 for James and George Burton that stated Lanarkshire, Scotland then the following year James and George Barton British Subject, America.

The marriage Bann shows Burton... now I was wondering if it was an error or if it was changed.
