    I also have a 3rd cousin helping me and she has came across information from the David Clarke passenger list.

    So, she decided to track down the Rogerson connection first and this is what she found –


    Frank Rogerson (1745 - ) Married: Mary Lockerby
    They had 3 children (James, William & John)

    1.James Rogerson (1765 - ) Married: Agnes Graham

    2.William Rogerson (1767 – 1836) Married: Janet Jardine (1765 – 1841)
    They had a Child (George)
    George Rogerson (1800 – 1869) M Janet Tweedie (1816 – 1848) and then Married: Agnes Fleming ( - )
    George & Janet had a child (Elizabeth)
    Elizabeth Rogerson (1832 – 1875 ) & John McNay (C1832 – 1858)

    3.John Rogerson (1771 – 1859) Married: Nicholas Johnston (1776 – 1860)
    They had 3 children (Janet, William & Francis)

    Janet Rogerson (1812 - ) died in Victoria – was on board David Clark into Melbourne 1839 with McNays.
    William Johnston Rogerson (1816 – 1891) he also came to Victoria and died here.
    Francis Rogerson (1820 – 1868) died at Kangaroo Flat, Victoria - was on board David Clark into Melbourne 1839 with McNays.


    So, Janet and Francis Rogerson who came to Melbourne with James McNay and his family in 1839, were children of John Rogerson, who was brother to William Rogerson, who was a father to George Rogerson and who was father to our Elizabeth Rogerson.

    That makes another connection between our "McNays" and the Moonee Ponds "McNays" (James McNay).

    Surely it's not a coincidence!

    George & Janet had 8 children
    Elizabeth (partner to my John McNay), Margaret (1835-????), William (1837-1905), Janet (1839-1840), Grace 1842-????, Sarah (1842-1918), Agnes (1847-1927) & James (1848-1915).

    We also have a piece of paper that Agnes McNay (nee Warren) had written on.


    Agnes McNay/nee Warren (1876-1929) Letter.
    This is what was written on the paper.

    Uncle Archo McNay, Tamleigh West, Victoria.

    Uncle William Rogerson, Lockerbie, Dumfries-shire, Scotland.

    Aunt Agnes Rogerson & Mr Robert Tait (1837-1919) from Lochmaben, Dumfries-shire, Scotland.

    Aunt Margaret & Mr Johnston, Liverpool, England.

    ----------------------------------------------
    So going by my family tree.

    Uncle Archo McNay (1829-1909), Tamleigh West, Victoria.
    He is the one who links back to James McNay & Jane (Jean Johnstone)

    Uncle William Rogerson (1837-1905), Lockerbie, Dumfries-shire, Scotland.
    This is Elizabeth Rogerson’s brother, and therefore Agnes Warren nee McNay’s uncle.

    Aunt Agnes Rogerson (1847-1927) & Mr Robert Tait (1837-1919) from Lochmaben, Dumfries-shire, Scotland (Married)
    This is Elizabeth Rogerson’s sister, married to Robert Tait, and therefore Agnes McNay/nee Warren’s auntie.

    Aunt Margaret & Mr Johnston from Liverpool, England.
    This is Elizabeth Rogerson’s sister, and therefore Agnes Warren nee McNay’s auntie

    ----------------------------
    So all those name match up, except Archibald McNay of Tamleigh West, Victoria. His father is James McNay. Archibald had 2 brothers and 3 sisters.
    John (1826-1860) He passed away in Melbourne from drowning.
    Jane McNay (1833-1891) She married John Thomson (1825-1875)
    Gilchrist McNay (1839-1923) He was born at sea, on the David Clark ship.
    Margaret McNay (1842-1918) She married Alexander McTavish (1830-1880)
    Lillias McNay (1845-1932) She married Thomas William Armistead (1841-1929)

    So not sure how Agnes McNay/Nee Warren knows Archibald McNay

    Here are some John's I have on my tree.

    My John - https://www.ancestry.com.au/family-t...d=422171936742

    John McNay (Son of James and Jean) - https://www.ancestry.com.au/family-t...3321&selnode=1

    John McNay & Isabella Muir, they had a son John but apparently he went to the USA - https://www.ancestry.com.au/family-t...0150&selnode=1

    I have all these "McNay's" on my tree encase one day, I can link them all up.
