I am requesting assistance in finding the parents of John Lamont born January 13, 1761 in Kilfinan, Argyll, Scotland. John is my wife's 4th GG.
His wife was Mary Johnston born 1764 in Kilfinan, Argyllshire, Scotland. His birth register details his parents as James Lamont and Betsey McLachlin but I can find no records related to them or their marriage.
The current match I have for John's parents is John Lamont (born September 15, 1714 in Rothesay, Bute, Scotland) and Margaret Ferguson (no dates). This is a stretch given John's father would have been 50 when he was born and that they were married in 1731.
Thanks in advance for any assistance with this!
