I could ' ave been a Hossack.
Three generations of illegitimacy giving rise to a number of brick walls.
Ann Paterson, (b. 1829, Aberdeen, d. 1906, Banff) was the illegitimate daughter of Isabella Kellas (1800-1864), the reputed father being William Paterson. Isabella was herself illegitimate, born to Edward Kellas and Ann Edwards. Ann used the name Kellas and Paterson, and Milton (a married name for a while) in the census returns.
Ann gave birth to an illegitimate son William Paterson in 1855 though the name Hossack was used in the 1860 census. In the 1851 census a young Ann Kellie (Kellas?) is living as a draper's assistant in the home of merchant William Hossack (1821-1857) so the assumption is that this is my ancestor. William Hossack's parents were Alexander Hossack and Hannah Glennie
I'm looking for anyone with a DNA bloodline to this Hossack / Glennie line to help prove my assumptions
