My great great grandparents were born and marries in Scotland. The OPR says they were from Garranhill. They were married in County/Ayr - Parish Muirkirk. Can anyone tell me with where Garranhill is/was?
His name was William Walls. Her name was Grace (Grazzel) Howat/Howit.
They were both born around 1805 and imigrated to the US in 1843.

Hi I understand Garranhill is a few houses near Muirkirk in the county of Ayrshire, about 20 miles due East of Ayr. This web page may be of interest

What a merry little search I have gone through and found very little that stands up to scrutiny !!
2 entries for William Walls, neither fills me with delight
William son to James Walls and Elisabeth Street( well that what it says although I would disagree having viewed it ) Not married.

William son to John Walls gardener to Hillhouse and Catherine (Young )

I have given up on Grace. I can't find any trace at all of a Baptism.
That does not mean that they don't exist or not baptised, just that they will not come up and speak to you !!
Sorry for the disappointing result. I usually enjoy looking for the Scottish ones, but not this time
