Family of John Cairncross, born 1755, Monifieth, married Helen Lousen.

(Thanks must go to Mr David Cowan from Australia who sent me a 68 page .pdf document in an email in March 2014. Where there are differences, such as dates, between the original family tree and David’s version, I will place this difference in square brackets thus [ ]. David has requested me not to add the complete information for living persons, for reasons of possible identity theft, etc. Also, the original information for this family tree was supplied by Liz Smith in emails in February 2008. In March 2017, I was contacted by Tara Kennedy by email, who supplied details for this family tree, which also appeared in F-T-7. This has enabled me to fully incorporate F-T-7 into this tree.)
