(Original information provided by Mary Maki, in emails from 14.11.2004 onwards.) (More information provided by Jean Hartle in an email June 24, 2009, in Ancestry format. In Jean’s tree, Alexander was born in 1758, not 1778, and he had a son, William born 1785, which did not appear in the original tree. In Jun 2015, I was given access to Jean Hartle’s tree on Ancestry. She has done an excellent job, and added many interesting photos and an immense number of Cairncrosses. Where there is a conflict between Jean’s Ancestry tree, and the information previously gathered, I have decided to trust Jean’s. Accordingly, the following is based on Jean’s information. My sincere thanks go to Jean.)
