Re: Breach of the Registration Act.

Thanks, Alan
What a variety of ways one could get in trouble! :shock: It seems a bit arbitrary - the gentlemen in Stirling only being fined 2s and then poor Margaret MacBeath of Latheron 18 months later being fined 25s and expenses :(

Re: CENTENARIANS.

Thanks again, Alan! Thanks to you, I've learned a new word today, "pawky" [cheers] Not sure how I did without it up to now... I'm sure my Scottish ancestors could have told me, but they've been sadly silent recently :?

Best,

Re: CENTENARIANS.

I was just rereading my great grandfather's account of the locust invasion in Kansas in the 1870s -- those horrible grubs sound equally ghastly...

Thanks again, Alan

Re: Pearce Carmidy USA

Well, they are certainly an elusive bunch :? I can't find Pearce anywhere, nor can I find Mary Fo(r)ster. There are two Foster men in Eaton, Eaton County, Michigan (3 miles from Charlotte) in 1850, both born in England -- possibly Sarah's brothers? Their spouses and children were all born in Ohio. 1...
