DONNA SIMON Hi Donna What a small world, my husband's 3x Great Gran was also born in Abbotshall (Kinglassie) in 1842. Maybe they knew each other. Anyway I found his birth, parents marriage and 4 siblings. Dawn :-) ALEXANDER MCKENZIE, born 9 Oct 1842, Kinglassie, Fife DONALD MCKENZIE married HELEN BROWN 9 Feb 1847 Kinglassie, Fife JANET MCKENZIE, born 3 Feb 1844, Kinglassie MARY MCKENZIE, born 10 Apr 1849, Kinglassie CATHARINE MCKENZIE, born 1 Aug 1851, Kinglassie ROBERT MCKENZIE, born 30 Nov 1853, Kinglassie


Donna Report 29 Jul 2005 18:04

Hi Dawn Thank-you so much for the information . What is your families name in Kinglassie. Best wishes Donna


Dawn Report 29 Jul 2005 18:09

Hi Donna My husband's 3x Great Gran was Euphemia Philp, her parents were John Philp and Helen Birrell, siblings were George, William, Ann, Helen, John and Thomas. She later married George Paterson who was also from that area. His parents were John Paterson and Grace McEwan who were married in Kinglassie. Euphemia and George stayed in the Fife area and had their children there, so you never know there might be a connection!! Dawn :-)

David Report 30 Jul 2005 08:54

Hi Dawn, Thanks for all the information. I didn't expect you to go to so much effort. I was looking for a marriage and children for James and John but forgot to mention that. Sorry. Is the marriage for John and Susan only a possibility or does your information give the grooms parents as well? Thanks again, David


Donna Report 31 Jul 2005 18:54

Hi Dawn , I have a favour would you please check for a Helen Brown born in Beath, Fife . the problem is on the census and death cert the years range from 1818 to 1825 . on the death cert only fathers name was given John Brown Thank you Donna


Dawn Report 1 Aug 2005 11:34

Hi David Sadly my marriage records don't list the parents of bride and groom, that's why that marriage is only a possible I'm afraid. Sorry I couldn't help more. Dawn :-)

Dawn, any chance you can help me, I'm tearing my hair out lol Can you find, in Glasgow, the birth or baptism of Thomas E Redhead? Should be about 1852. Parents are Thomas Redhead and Elizabeth Speck. If you can, I also have a couple more, but I don't know where they were born. Can you do those? looking at 1850-1855.


Dawn Report 1 Aug 2005 11:41

MARGARET @ LINDSAY, CANADA Hi Margaret Sorry I couldn't find anything to that fit with the info you gave me for James, Annie or Robert and Martha. Do you have any other info on Robert besides that he was born around 1835? As I cam back with loads of Roberts. Do you have an idea which area he was born in or anything else that might cut it down a bit? Then I'll have another look for you. Dawn :-)


Dawn Report 1 Aug 2005 11:46

SHEILA ROBINSON Hi Sheila I had a look for William in 1861 just in case that area had info a little beyond my records (up to 1854 mainly) but nothing that late I'm afraid. Hope you find him soon, good luck. Dawn :-)


Dawn Report 1 Aug 2005 11:55

DONNA SIMON Hi Donna Not sure if one of these might be her or not. These were the only 2 that I could find in Fife around those dates and with a father called John. I have family in that area, around the same sort of time, that was born in one place and christened in another, so many one of these places is near to Beath!!! Don't know the area too well. Sorry I couldn't help more.

DAPHNE MCCARTNEY Hi Daphne Sorry I couldn't find anything for Thomas or his parent's marriage, even checked the whole of Scotland in case they married elsewhere, but still nothing. Sorry I couldn't help more, hope you find them soon. Dawn :-)

Thanks Dawn :) You wouldn't have been able to find Thomas and Elizabeth as they married in England. The others I have are Thomas and Elizabeth Liversedge. Thomas was born about 1853 and Elizabeth about 1854. They are children or Richard and Maria(o)n. She was Scottish, but I can't find their marriage either. Perhaps you can find them too? Thomas was the oldest child. They moved back to England after Elizabeth was born.


Sarah Report 1 Aug 2005 13:14

Hi Dawn, Hope I'm not too late to take you up on your kind offer! I am trying to find the birth/baptism of William Pollock born 1843 probably in Glasgow, Lanarkshire to parents Thomas Pollock and Janet Mc???er probably McKiver. Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks once again, best wishes, Sarah


April Report 1 Aug 2005 13:40

Hi Dawn Can you check for children of Thomas Renton & Janet Sheriff (mispelt Sherrif & Sherriff). I only have children George in 1803 & Elizabeth in 1798 in Dunbar, East Lothian. Also children of Thomas Kerr (mispelt Carre) and Janet Huntley in Berwickshire around the the same time. Thanks April


Donna Report 1 Aug 2005 18:16

Hi Dawn , Thank-you so much for all your help. Your a real gem . I think It could be the one that was born in Kilrenny, Fife . Because she did name their second daughter Mary . Which would follow naming patterns. I forgot that in 1851 census it said that a Margaret Brown sister in law, 13, Flax spinner, Kinghorn, Fife Did they have a daughter named Margaret .Sorry I should of mentioned it before . What do you think, could it be a match ? I'm just new a this . Best wishes Donna


Margaret Report 1 Aug 2005 19:33

Dawn, thanks for trying. Unfortunately, the only mention I have of Robert at all is on his son's birth certificate of June 4, 1855 -- Robert Hamilton, Boiler Maker, age 20 years, born Glasgow.

SARAH MILLER Hi Sarah These were the only entries that I could find that fit the info you gave me. I did a whole Scotland check but still only came back with these. Not sure if one is your William or not. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
