Surnames: Nisbet, Muir, Craig, Blair
I am looking for confirmation. My husband's great great grandfather was Richmond Nisbet (13 Apr 1857--I believe) who married Janet Blair (~1855).

I believe that Richmond's parents were Matthew Nisbet (~1832) and Isabella Muir--married 9 Dec 1854.

I also believe that Richmond's grandparents were Archibald Nisbet and Elise(a)beth Craig.

Does any of this ring a bell. I have other infromation about Matthew's and Richmond's siblings, if this would help.

My 4th Greatgrandmother, Janet Nisbit born in 1803 was the daughter of Archibald Nesbit & Elizzabeth Craig. She married Peter Connel (o'Connel) In 1818.

I would love to learn anything you have discovered about the family. My great-greatgrandmother Janet Nesbit Connel emigrated to the USA in 1873.

Thank You!

we are descended from the same nisbit/nesbit line

Janet and Peter's daughter mary Connell b 1823 New Milns, loudon Ayrshire married John grant in either 1844 or 1848

I've got tentative lists of other o'connell/connel siblings but not much on the nesbets- not least because there are so many in the area. Archibald is a less common name and one of jane and peters sons was Archibald Nisbit Connell so that stacks up

do you have anything firm on janets parents or janet and peter's marriage?
