Charles McWilliam

John Report 23 Nov 2012 07:30

Hi, I am trying to find the date of death of Charles McWilliam, born 1829 in Arberlour Banffshire. He married Helen Robb in 1855. She died at Tillymorgan Cottages Culsamond 4/2/1900. Although, alive at time of wife's death & I cannot find him in 1901 census, he erected a Monument to Helen and his sons at Culsamond in 1904.

Any assistance greatly appreciated.
