I'm curious to learn a little more about what your research is. My maiden name is Cowie. My dad's line is from Aberdeen, Scotland from what I have collected. My maternal grandmother's mom was married twice, the second time to an Oliver. I know very little about the Oliver's, as I am a descendent from the first marriage to a Mus(s)elman(n), but the little I do know is that they were from Canada. I would be happy to share more, if you are interested. I don't know what you would want, so I look forward to hearing from you.

I have a family tie to the COWIE surname.

My great, great grandparents, Robert Sinclair (1838-1901) and wife Ann Pettigrew (1841-1916) were from East Linton, Scotland. Roberts parents were John Sinclair (1808-1891) and Margaret Hislop (1814-1879).

Margarets parents were David Hislop and Isabella Cowie. There are several ancestors hints for Isabella Cowie on (Mark WILKIEs family tree)

Best of Luck
