Peter1 Blair (my gr-gr-gr grandfather), son of John Blair and Margaret McLuckie, was born in 1763. According to a letter to my great aunt Winnie he married Elizabeth Bell in June 1788 and was a bottler in Paisley. The letter also give the names and DOB of their 10 children all supposedly born in Paisley.

I am searching for two McLuckies, both Margarets, both most likely from Kippen Stirlingshire and both married BLAIRs.

The first Margaret McLuckie married John BLAIR (my gr-gr-gr-gr grandfather) Jan 15, 1749. John and Margaret had 6 children we know of: John-1750, Robert-1755, James-1759, Joseph-1761, Peter-1763, and Janet-1764.

Robert BLAIR, son of John and Margaret, married Margaret McLuckie, April 17, 1784, in Greenock, Renfrew. A few days after the wedding they sailed to America and settled in Barnet VT.

At the Vermont Historical Society we discovered a substantial collection of letters from Robert's family, and Margaret's brother in Scotland written to them in Vermont. These letters date back to 1786. They shed invaluable information on the family. The letters from Robert's father John all came from Arnmore.

From these letters we have pieced together the following:

John Blair and Margaret McLuckie were born about 1720. John died in Dec 1799, Margaret died in Dec 1788.

Robert Blair was born abt 1754, Margaret was born abt 1753. It appears that Margaret had brothers Robert, John and Andrew, and sisters Janet and Elizabeth. A letter from her brother Robert in 1786 mentions that brother John is in South Carolina.

If anyone has information on either of these lines of McLuckie I would appreciate hearing from you.

I have download over 700 McLuckie births/christenings and 400 McLuckie marriages in Scotland between 1701 - 1860 from the LDS-FHC OPRs. These are ALL the McLuckie births/christenings and marriages listed in the LDS-FHC OPRs and can be found below.
