Hi Siobhan,

Not sure if this helps but I have a Susanna (Susan) Niven born about 1815 - she may be a sister of your direct line.

She marries Thomas Auld and they have a child Elizabeth Auld. I have a fair bit of information on Elizabeth Auld. Let me know if you would like more information on Elizabeth.

I wonder if you know what Thomas Auld this is . My Great Grandfather was a Thomas Auld from Stevenston ?
If you don't know where your going, any road will take you there.
