Several years later! I have more information but still no trace of marriage or families of David Maxwell and Mary McCaa. They had a son James in Kirkcudbright Feb 1820. According to Mary Maxwell she was 18 at emigration 1839 and her husband James a year older. Mary had been living with extended family in Wednesbury before her marriage. How long had James been in Birmingham ? - unknown. The letter mentioned above says that Mary’s father had seen James’ father ( not named) in Kirkcudbright - letter written 1848. Also found a birth registration for James and Mary Maxwell’s second child, first son named William in Wellington , NZ - states that his father is  James Maxwell formerly of Kirkcudbright. Recently 3 descendants of James and Mary Maxwell have shown DNA matches with a descendant of a McCaa family from Kirkcudbright - no link found yet with a possible Mary McCaa. Still welcoming any further information or suggestions.
