Hi Margaret, Could you please try to find John Ross in Edinburgh, born 1843 Corstophine, Edinburgh. John was a stonemason and he may have the following children with him, James (1866), Margaret (1868), John (1869), Murray (1871), Robert (1873), Catherine (1874) and William (1876). Could you also please try to find Annie Ross in Edinburgh. Annie was born 1845 and her birthplace could be given as either Prestonkirk or East Linton. I believe that Annie was at this time, a Housekeeper for a Robert Nisbet. Annie may have her youngest son, Henry Ross, with her. I would appreciate details of the household please. Many thanks for your help. Regards Norman.
