Dear All

I am the great great grandson of Alexander Gunn through his youngest son William. From records I have the father of Alexander Gunn was Adam Gunn of Beridale. I believe that Adam was not a normal Gunn name but a Gordon clan name. If anybody can further elaborate any detail I would be most appreciative.
