Writing a Book about the Descendants of Robert Muir (~1800-Ireland, 1869-Scotland)

I am writing a book about the descendants of Robert Muir (~1800-1869) , my 3X great grandfather. He married Henrietta Brown (died bef 1856) in Avondale, Lanarkshire in 1828 and they had 11 known children:
  •  Elizabeth Muir (c1829-1863) married Matthew Cassels
  • Martha Muir (1830-1876) married John Riddell
  • Jean Muir (1834-bef 1837)
  • Henrietta Muir (1836-1841)
  • Jean Muir (1837-1856)
  • Robert Orr Muir (1839-1917) married 1) Jane Paton Loudon and 2) Mary Watson Shaw
  • Henrietta Muir (1841-1929) married James Williamson and immigrated to Australia
  • Thomas Muir (1842-1901) married 1) Janet Sorbie and 2) Isabella Moore
  • James Muir (1844-1926) married 1) Margaret Semple and immigrated to USA and 2) Margaret (McIntosh) Greenbank
  • John Muir (1846-1923) married Lilias Weir
  • Nathaniel Muir (c1850-1923) married 1) Janet Shaw and 2) Christina Ure

 If you are a descendant of any of these people and would like to contribute stories, photos, or memories of your ancestors, I would love to include them in the book. The book will be free to those who contribute and will be delivered electronically in PDF format.

Simply comment below and I will be in contact with more information. Or contact me through my public Facebook genealogy page: Tangled Roots and Trees.

If you would like to review the research I have done on this family and have a guest registration or subscription to, you may view my Jennings/Lange/Muir/Schalin public tree.

I look forward to hearing from you.
