Morton Family - a Memory of Isle of Whithorn.

My mother's maiden name was Mary Hannah Morton and her father, James Morton, mother Ada and older sister Peggy lived on a farm called High Balcray. Grandpa had brothers, one of which became manager of the Bladnock Creamery and a sister, Bess, who married a man by the surname McGill, I remember her having a daughter called Sheila. My grandparents moved from High Balcray when my mother was 4 and went to live in Gretna Green. I would love to hear from any one who can give me information on my ancestors.
