Re: Mysterious death

Hi Carolineasb
I was thinking the same thing but nothing attached to the certificate. It also sounds a bit suspect that his cell mate could turn over and sleep while Michael Rodgers took his own life. Tough times.

Re: Mysterious death

Hi Everyone, This is getting very interesting Andrew P, thanks for the info - I had my suspicions that there would be children as she was only 29 and he was 42 when they married in 1868. At your suggestion I found Margaret Jamieson on the 1881 census in Greenside Lane. My husband's 2 x gt grandfathe...

Re: Alvie parish in Badenoch

Hi Lynn, Thanks for the reply - I did think about the Service Returns but too many to look through - by 1914 he was 36 - still could have been in the war. He was living in Renfrew in 1904 as he was the witness when his mother died. That's quite a good lead but for the fact there are so many James an...

Re: Alvie parish in Badenoch

Hi Spacot, I just noticed this post tonight. My query is a bit different but you might be able to help. I have a James McFarlane who married a Isabella Milligan in 1903 in Old Kilpatrick. He disappears after that - I can't find a death for him anywhere. However i found a death for Isabella in Alvie ...

Q98929

Thanks for the post. I've past it on to my husband - he says it's a really good point. No one could understand why some were born in kilwinning as there was no connection to the area.
I'm not sure if they would have been born in the maternity hospital in the 30s - I'll try and find out.

Flanagan help again please

Hi Everybody, I'm probably like everyone else on TS - turning to genealogy even more to keep me going throughout the lockdown. Stay safe everybody. I'm trying to find the children of Thomas and Bridget Flanagan (my great grandparents) in the 1891 census. Thomas and Bridget (Devine) are on the 1891 c...

Re: John Reynolds Perkins 2.1.1919 - 3.6.2010

Hi Alan, Thank you so much for taking the time to look at this. He has one surviving niece who is now aged 91. I will ensure her family get the information so that she has an idea what happened to our Uncle John. Now that I have the name of the son I will continue to research this. Sincere thanks Ian
