William Melrose was born on Sept 8, 1754 and he married Agnes Paterson on Dec 3, 1774. I wonder if it might be possible to go back another generation or Two...hopefully. The Melrose family seem to have been predominantly farmers in Scotland. William and Agnes William and Agnes had a huge family if I have this correct. ie Jean, Elizabeth, Isobel, John, James, William, Agnes, Kathrine and Mary. I believe this family live mainly in Peebleshire, Scotland. Thank you very much.
