  Brown of Port Logan, and Kirkmaiden
   
Janet Brown of Port Logan, Kirkmaiden parish in Wigtownshire was born in 1845. In 1866, she married John Andrew Gibson, of Sandnook, Kirkmaiden parish. They moved to Glasgow, where most of their children were born. At the time of her death, in 1912, she had moved back to Drummore, in Kirkmaiden.

Her family history follows:
