I have William McMichael and family in the 1851 Census living at a farm which I found difficult to decipher on a recent trip to Register House. According to Ancestry it's East Westland ? Would that be near the present day Waistland on the Kirkconnel Road ?
I also have a William McMichael in my Family Tree. I believe he was the Father of Jane McMichael who married Robert Somerville, who was my Great, Great Grandfather. The Somervilles farmed at Mansefield Mains, Mansefield Road, New Cumnock. Any further information you have would be greatly appreciated.
Where are you from ? Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, England
