I am looking for information on a Robert Kirkpatrick who died in 1832 via horse accident in Dumfriesshire. His wife, Jane nee Hunter traveled to Australia and died in the Carcoar District. I have a photo of headstone/plot. Mentions on the headstone it was created by her daughter Helen W Loudon.
Robert Kirkpatrick is listed as the father of John Hunter Kirkpatrick, who Janet nee Hunter is his mother. Ideally, I am looking for information on Robert Kirkpatrick and his "PARENTS". Who were they? I assume that they were from the Dumfriesshire area.
There are references in the Sydney newspapers of my great grandfather, a prominent architect in Sydney, John Kirkpatrick - father of Herwald Kirkpatrick; John being the grandson of Sir James 4th Baronet of Closeburn. However I cannot make the link.
So I can establish that Johns father was Robert Kirkpatrick so this MUST mean that Sir James 4th Baronet of Closeburn was Roberts father thus making John, Sir James grandson?!
But I cannot match the dates up. Any hel is gratefully appreciated and I am happy to help where I can to in return.

Thanking you kindly for any help that you can provide.
