I am trying to locate the birth place and year of John Blair, who married Agnes Campbell in 1813. He was a teacher in Strathblane, Scotland Agnes and John's first child was born in Glasgow, but subsequently children were born in Polmont (1817-1825), Kirkintilloch (1827) and Strathblane (1830). The births registered in Polmont are said to have taken place in the School House at Redding.
According to John Guthrie Smith's book, "The Parish of Strathblane.." a John Blair had an adventure or side school on the south side of the road opposite Middle Ballewan.
Please can anyoe help with any more information regarding John Blair? I believe they worshipped at Great Hamilton Street Reformed Presbyterian Church in Glasgow, and that Agnes may have been suspended from church privileges around 1839 and not restored until 13 years later.
This is currently a 'dead end' for me, so any help would be much appreciated.
