ALAN MCDONALD Hi Alan Found a possible for angus. ANGUS MCDONALD, b 27 Nov 1850, East Parish, Greenock, Refrewshire You could ask somone to look for the family on the 1881 English census to see if this provides you any info. As for the other info, Scotland's People is the best site. Sometimes people offer free searches on here. Hope that helps. Dawn

Carol Report 29 May 2006 22:35

Hi Dawn, Thank you for all your trouble. Both replies are great. Could i trouble you for the parents of Mary Johnstone m 16 Oct 1831.( The mother of David Mc Burnie Lawie, I guess her mother would be a McBurnie) I have the other Mary's parents as Christopher Johnson and Winifred Grainger so now know they are incorrect. Regards Carol ( in NZ )

Hi Dawn, thanks for getting back to me regarding Elizabeth wishes to you and bub Carol


Katharina Report 30 May 2006 03:42

Thank you for looking anyway Dawn - I suspected it might be too long a list of possibles with such little info. Why do these Scots have to be so elusive?! And why didn't they just stay in Scotland instead of roaming around London, marrying all sorts of random people, dying young and confusing their future decendents?! Thanks, I'll keep doing my own digging and if I find more, I'll come begging again. Cheers Kat :-)

He married Mary Woods born 1853 Glasgow. I don't know if they married in Scotland or met & married in Victoria, Australia, where their children were born. Any info would be great. Chris
