Hi Ellen, Still puzzling over JOAN .I`m sure it`s her parents WILLIAM AND JANE at 43, Walkinshaw Street, Glasgow. Could you possibly see who else is there with them? Thanks,Rosalyn

Thanks a million Ellen. I beleive that Mary McDonald is Archibalds mother-in-law but so far cant work that one out as Christinnas maiden name was wright. I am curious about this adoption as nobody in my family knew about it. Thanks Gloria

Hi Ellen, I'm back again. I seem to be on a roll so i am afraid to leave the computer. could you have a look for Robert Silcock in the larbert or Falkirk area. He died in June 1881 so should be somewhere on the census. He would be at least 70. Thanks Shona

Little Lost Report 26 Apr 2005 07:08

Hi, a friend of mine has just come back from new registry house and has given me a variation on a name that I believed to be true. I was searching LAWCOCK but it seems on the birth certificate that the mothers maiden name is LAVEROCK. Very similar but I wondered if you may have either of these around Douglas area on 1881. It is really an Isabella Lawcock that I have but there was a small cluster of them around that area. Thanks Gloria

Sinead Can't find any likely candidates for Donald and Catherine together - it is possible they were not yet married by 1881, as Christina was not born till 1887. Any idea of Catherine's maiden name? Regards Ellen.

Sinead Report 26 Apr 2005 20:17

Thanks for the Walkinshaw data Ellen Donald Robertson 1859 married Catherine Mcfarlane,1855 Married by 1875 as son Alexander was born then. Thanks, Sineadxxx

Ellen Report 26 Apr 2005 20:56

Sinead I can not find Donald and Catherine together anywhere in Scotland. Also can not find young Alexander. So frustrated I looked up familysearch and scotlandspeople. The only Alexander Robertson born 1874 to 1876 in Govan is illegitimate to an Elizabeth Robertson. Where did you get the info of all of their birth dates - you must be getting that info from somewhere and that might help us to narrow this down. Regards Ellen.
