Re: William John Green & Sarah Moore - Where Did They go ?

Hi,

Yes, I've found both William & Sarah's death certs now. William drowned in Queen's Dock, Glasgow and Sarah died of bronchitis in 1885 in Whiteinch.
Their 3 children lived with their grandmother Martha Tedford (Moore) at 6 Scotstoun Pl, in 1891.

Thanks for your help :).

Regards,

Daryl

Re: William Rodger - Foulyet Farm, Bothwell Parish 1785 onwards

Hi Alan, Many thanks for finding that info on William, he's proving difficult to find. I did come across him in the cart tax roll for 1785, but nothing after that. I did find a document mentioning a James Rodger who resided at Foulyet farm on the Lauchope estate. His father before him also lived the...

Re: George Millar McNeil - Paisley 1881

Hi Alan, Thanks for looking those possible matches for George. I had a look at the links you mentioned but sadly don't think it's my George unfortunately. His parents were George & Mary (Millar). I do think he either immigrated overseas or died somewhere other than Scotland. It's strange that I can'...
