Dawn Report 4 Jan 2006 16:58

Well I've finally got myself sorted to come and let you all know that I had my baby. Alexander Cameron was born on 12th July at 00:52, weighing in at 7lbs 13ozs. The past few months have been hard work but loads of fun. So I'm back around to do requests. I've set up a new thread, so if you need a look up please post it on there. It may take me a few days but I will get it done for you. Thanks to all of you with your good luck messages while I was pregnant, they were very much appreciated. Dawn

Hi Dawn Very kind of you to offer to do these look-ups. Would you be able to look up the following Parent Search for me please? Father: ANDREW INGLIS (sometimes spelt INGLES) Mother: ELISABETH STIRLING (sometimes spelt Elizabeth) They were married on 26 June 1778 in WEMYSS, FIFE. So far I have located 3 of their children: William b1779 Wemyss, Fife John b1782 Wemyss, Fife Andrew b1788 Clackmannon Just wondering if the Parent Search will throw up any more children. Many thanks - much appreciated. (Are you able to PM me with any results, just in case this thread becomes huge and difficult to find replies - ta!) Leah

Hi Dawn, thank you for taking the time to do these look-ups. Ridiculous people being rude to you. On the parent search facility, would it be possible to look for any children born to father.......Samuel Nicolson mother...... Janet Matheson, married abt 1852, Brogaig, Stenscholl, Skye I have found their children born after 1855 but think there may have been a couple born before? Thank you Christine

Thanks for the offer of look ups I'm searching for parents of Thomas Simpson b c 1828 in Scotland, sorry but that's all the information i have. Thanks againhh Jean


Melissa Report 6 Jan 2006 04:28

Hi Dawn, Could you please look for the BIRTH of DAVID VASS born 1804 in Balintore. The district registration should be Fearn or Nigg in Ross & Cromarty, most likely NIGG. His death record gives parents of John & Janet Vass, but i would like to confirm with his birth record. Also if you do find them and it's not too much trouble, any siblings would be great too. Thanks for your time, Mel.

MARION FROM SCOTLAND Hi Marion I couldn't find their marriage as there were loads of John Stewarts marrying Christian's in the Perth area, so couldn't cut it down. Had better success with Donald. I found his twin brother and a number of siblings. All these were born in Little Dunkeld. I'm not sure if the last 4 are for the same couple, there were loads of couple with the same names in Perth having children around that time, so it was quite hard to work through them. I'd say the first 5 includind Donald are yours. Mum is listed as STEWART/STUART. Hope you find the info helpful. Dawn :-) ALEXANDER, b 16 Apr 1787 MARGRET, ch 12 Jun 1791 JOHN, b 1 May 1793 DONALD, b 1 May 1793 CHRISTIAN, ch 9 Aug 1795 JAMES, b 10 Oct 1802 GEORGE, b 12 Feb 1805 HELEN, ch 6 Jul 1808 ROBERT, ch 24 Jan 1811

Hello Dawn, You kindly found the parents of Hamilton Walden for me and I've found their marriage on the IGI and two other children, Ann Crawford and Elizabeth. I would appreciate you looking for any other children. The parents were JOHN WALDEN and ISABELLA MISCANDLIN. They were married in 1822 in Monkton, Ayrshire. Also, please look for the birth of John and Isabella, possibly in Ayrshire. Many thanks, Lilian

Anne Report 8 Jan 2006 17:28

Hello Dawn, Please could you have a look for the date of birth of John Kennedy about 1795. From his death certificate I know his parents were William Kennedy and Janet Kellock. I think he could have been born in the Morton area. Also if it is not asking too much could you have a look for the marriage of John Kennedy and Nicholas Bell Thomson. Their first child was born in 1818 as far as I know. Thank you for your help, Anne.

Bacardi Report 8 Jan 2006 21:44

Dawn This is wonderful:-) I am interested in the marriage of James Carruthers and Janet Deans in either late 1853 or early 1854 in Kirkcudbright- possibly parish of Urr? I am hoping that Mary McVitae And Robert Carruthers are the parents of James Carruthers and I hope you can do a Parents search to confirm this/find any other children (hopefully a Joseph Carruthers will turn up). Haven't managed to get a lead yet on Janet Deans parents:-( Regards Bev X
