Missing Scottish Children

Louise Report 22 Nov 2004 20:44

I'm trying to track down 5 lost children. The parents are William Robertson and Anne Ellis (m.1822 in Gorbals) and the kids are: Cecilia Brown Robertson b. 1827 in Gorbals, William McCue Robertson b.1830 in Gorbals, Margaret Robertson b.1832 in Scone, James Robertson b.1833 in Scone and Alexander Robertson b.1835 in Scone. The father disappears, presumed dead as the mother reappears in the 1841 census married to someone else and without these children. Any advice/ideas welcome. Thanks. Louise
