Further Details of the Parentage of Margaret Ritchie.
No details of the marriage a James Ritchie and a Jean Pollok have been found as of yet, nor the birth baptism of a Margaret to the aforementioned James Ritchie and Jean Pollok. However according to the Mormon IGI there are the baptisms of six other children of James Ritchie and Jean Pollok recorded in the parish register of Mearns. This is probably sufficient to confirm the parentage of Margaret Ritchie as recorded on her death certificate of. James Ritchie and a Jean Pollok as correct. Only the actual baptismal entry of William their first recorded son has been seen and this identifies James Ritchie and Jean Pollok as being at Longtown (aka Langton, Longton) a farm a few miles to the south west of Malletsheugh.
