John Blair

We know very little of John except that he was the oldest son of John Blair and Margaret McLuckie

Old Parish Records of the Church of Scotland list John as the son of John Blair and Margaret McLuckie, baptized on Feb 11, 1750 in Kippen, Stirlingshire, Scotland. The same information is recorded in the Associate Session of Balfron which contains baptisms of Buchlyvie from 1750 to 1752

John is also mentioned in several of the Robert Blair Letters:
