My name is Rhonda Cook from Australia and i'm hoping someone out there can help me find more background on my Leitch family.
My great grandfather was Henry Leitch born 1849 in Letham Fifeshire Scotland. He married Mary McDonald (born 1853 Kingseat Fifeshire).
They married in 1877 in Kingseat Fifeshire and came to Austrlia.
I have Henry's father as Thomas Leitch born about 1808 in Torryburn Fife Scotland and married to Helen Adamson (born 1806 in Auchterderran Fife). They married in 1832 Dumfermline ? Scotland.
As far as i can tell Thomas's father was Andrew Leitch who married Susan Balfour 1805 in Carnock Fife Scotland.
If anyone out there has these names in their family tree i would love to hear from you in the hope of tracing even further back.
I'd also like to trace Henry's wife Mary McDonalds family as all i have is her father as William McDonald married to Margaret Kettles/Kittles.
The 1851 Scotland census i believe had them at Midlethian Scotland.
I would really appreciate any help. You can email me direct at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer.
