thank you so much for the info .It sounds like the same personalthough some of the childrens names I have are slightly different.I have william,eva,thomas, rebecca and ada.

ArgyllGran Report 21 Mar 2013 13:44

Those children's names match 1871 census, except for Ada - was she born after 1871?
The older children would have left home by 1881, if that's the record you're going by.
