This is what I have on William Hossack, Helen Hossack was my great-great grandmother.: William Hossack married Bathia Milne 6/12/1830 in Banff, SCT He was listed as a merchant. This marriage produced 4 daughter and 1 son:

Barbara Hossack b. 7/19/1835,

I have a chart from "A History of the Decendants of George Henderson of Banffshire, Scotland 1790-1975" by David Henderson Carr. My great, great grandmother was Helen Hossack b. 1831. She was the daughter of William Hossack b. 6/17/1799 and Bathnia or Bathia Milne. William was the son of William Hossack b.1747 d.12/7/1819 and Barbara Shand bt.1/17/1760 d.1/21/1832. Will be happy to send you a copy of the Shand/ Milne line which goes back to John Milne c. 1580.

My great grandmother's (Catherine Matilda Roe) sister, Hannah Roe (b. 1847), of Mountrath, County Laois, Ireland, married a Garden Milne Roe, Clerk-Shieriff of Banffshire, (b. 1837) and resided in Banff, Scotland. He died in 1909. They had eight children: William Cardiff Hossack & Kate Bathia Hossack (possibly twins b. 1870); Garden Milne Hossack (b. 1871); Ethel Constance Hossack (b. 1873); Anna Roe Hossack (b. 1875); Ian Andrew Hossack (b. 1879); Leonora Shand Hossack (b. 1885); and James D.

I have William Cardiff Hossack dying 1/5/1918 in Calcutta, India. He was a medical doctor and the port health officer of Calcutta. To my knowledge he never married. Garden Milne Hossack who married Hannah Roe was brother to my gg grandmother Helen Hossack Coutts daughter of William Hossack and Bathia Milne. There is a nice obit for William C Hossack online from a medical journal.
