I recently found a record in the 1841 Census which I had not though was my John and Mary, because of the area being Leochel-Cushine, Little Lynturk. John Milne 64ys and Mary Milne 65yrs.

Re: Hogmanay Scandal Anyone?

P.S. When he died in 1907, he was living at 228 Main Street, Winthrop. The informant (listed as “Unknown”) gave his birthplace as Renfrew, Scotland and his parents names also “Unknown.” How do you get an unknown informant to fill out the details??? :lol: :lol: :lol: Great to get confirmation Sarah.

Re: Robert Britton & Elizabeth Porter - What Happened to Them?

I think Agnes could be Robert's 2nd wife too. There is such a gap in age between the children in 1841. There is a death registered in Paisley of a Robert Brattan age 68 in 1859. I am not sure if you looked at the entry if you would see if he had been married twice though. I don't think they listed s...
