Re: Mining Death Registered A Year Later?

Hello Wilma, In 1863 she would probably have been buried within 24 hours, if not sooner. Pretty well the same accident report in the Glasgow Herald, Tuesday, March 3, 1863 https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=4vVYAAAAIBAJ&sjid=e0sMAAAAIBAJ&pg=6939%2C3005364 Here’s a previous post about late registr...

Re: TalkingScot's 15th birthday

I lurked on the site for two and a half years before I registered. Either it was because of my slow computer, or that I couldn’t think of anything to say. Then on Friday, June 22, 2007, at 3:35 a.m., Scottish time, I piped up with: “It's a COOKIES thing. Delete all your Ancestry cookies and then ret...

Re: Letter from a Dumfries Dragoon — 1st January, 1855.

Hello Nevil and Welcome to TalkingScot. It’s nice to hear that Sergeant Shamburg made it through it all. I usually would have provided a link to things I found but maybe I had a problem with that at the time. There doesn’t seem to be any trace now of the information about the whereabouts of the meda...

Re: A Troublesome Priest Transferred.

Hello S, M & A. The final part just covers the deliberations of the Greenock Parochial Board. Finally, there appears to be no other course left this board, but to admit the claim of the children to support. The decision in the Court of Session, already referred to, appears to set the question at res...

Re: A Troublesome Priest Transferred.

Hello Meg and Sarah, The story continues, and it appears that Father Scanlan is even more of a Cad and Bounder than he first appeared to be. The next letter makes it evident that the whole affair has exploded, for he has beat a hasty retreat to Dundee, whence he writes :— "Dundee, 5th May 1845. " De...
