MURRAY BROTHERS - AYRSHIRE TO AFRICA

Post by jim mccreadie » Wed Mar 18, 2009 2:21 am

I would be grateful to receive any information on two brothers:
**** MURRAY (b. c 1924, probably Saltcoats, Ayrshire), and
**** MURRAY (b. c 1926, probably Saltcoats, Ayrshire)

They emigrated to either Rhodesia or South Africa following the Second World War; date / timeframe unknown. Their parents were John and Mary ("Polly") Russell (m.s. Robertson) MURRAY of Saltcoats.

This post is, I know, a long shot given the scant information I possess.

A little more information regarding the brothers;

I believe the younger brother was already married when he emigrated with his wife Molly, surname unknown. The lady came from Stevenston which is immediately adjacent to Saltcoats, Ayrshire.

The elder brother married a widow in South Africa. At some point after this marriage, both families then settled in Rhodesia. I'll bet they are no longer there!

This coming October, I am returning to my birth place to visit my mother, brother and sisters and would like to present my mother with our genealogy. Consequently, I would be grateful for ANY information on the brothers.
