Fenwick - Kilmarnock & Louden District

The Fenwick war memorial is a grey granite cross on a tapering pedestal which rests on two rustic steps. There is a lion rampant in sheild carved in relief on the cross head. The commemoration and names of the dead are set in lead lettering on the face and sides of the pedestal.
The monument stands at the road junction at the end of Main Street.
(I think the lower panel at the front of the pedestal may list the names of the WWII dead but I have lost the photographs and list so I'll check it next time I'm out that way.)

Kilmarnock Standard 27 November 1915
"FENWICK MAN KILLED

A letter has been received this week by Rev. Andrew Burns, Fenwick, from Private John Paton, 2nd Seaforth Highlanders, intimating the death of his brother, Private Charles Paton, 2nd Seaforth Highlanders, who was killed on Wednesday, 17th inst., by a sniper. Much sympathy is felt for his much respected parents Mr and Mrs John Paton, Hairshaw Smith, Waterside, Fenwick, whose other son, John, is also in France. Boths sons have been out sicne September 1914, and have seen much service. Charles was home some months ago suffering from gas poisoning, but recovered and returned to active service in France. He was much respected by all who knew him. He was employed in farm service with Mr Young at Hairshaw Farm and Parkhead, and latterly at High Gainford"

Hi folks

Can't find any info on John Ryan Irish Guards named on the memorial.
I've traced 3 John Ryan's who are listed in Rudyard Kipling's "Irish Guards in the Great War" - First Battalion

They are
Ryan, John 2698 Private Killed in Action 16/9/1914
Ryan, John 3216 Private Killed in Action 1/9/1914
Ryan, John 5382 Private Died 6/8/1915

Im asking a friend to send me details of the 2nd Battalion John Ryans and take it from there. I need to go over the newspapers again.

Thanks

JB
