||James RANKINE, b. 1765, d. 15 Jun 1850, Barr Village Ayr Scotland (Age 85 years) |
|Children of marriage
||They had 8 children. Three of them migrated on the Fairfield in 1839 - Dr John, Matthew, & James Gemmell.  |
||A Wikipedia entry for their son (Dr John Rankine) has the father as James Rankine - that is correct. But the entry has the mother as Jane Paterson - which is wrong because there is an OPR confirming that John's brother, William, married Jane Paterson in 1826 in Barr, Scotland.|
