Looking to find out more about James Reid and Jannet Gow, parents of Peter Reid, 1778-1855. He married Margaret Sinclair 1778-1852 on June 5, 1796. She was born at Cowiebank, St Ninian's, Stirlingshire on 27 Sept 1776. But her parents were not listed in the marriage record nor in the Match in Family Search. So any info on her as well, please.
