Hello Maria,

I'm sure if you post some details of the family, (such as where they lived, ages etc. ) someone may offer to help.

But they had 6 children before 1874, John, the eldest was born in Glasgow in 1859 (four days after they married), he must have died and the other John named after him, I suspect that he died too and John became Robert Thomas became John in the 1881 census. But in the 1881 census there are also six children:

No sign of a birth for James!

There are a couple of possible Roberts on the Highland's disc of the 1881 census, some on boats, others in barracks. What was Robert's occupation?
Searching for Keogh, Kelly, Fitzgerald, Riddell, Stewart, Wilson, McQuilkin, Lynch, Boyle, Cairney, Ross, King, McIlravey, McCurdy, Drennan and Woods (to name but a few).

Also looking for any information on Rathlin Island, County Antrim, Ireland.

Hi Andy

Thanks for your reply.
I do have the 1881 census info for this family trouble is Isabella says she is a widow, but Robert was living alone in 1891 and with his youngest child John, wife Matilda and family in 1901,(Robert died in 1 04 1906 in Glasgow).
I also have all births of children except Robert b abt 1869. which I got off Scotlands people,Robert snr was born in Liverpool 1832 and left before the 1851 census never to return as far as I know, he was a Tobacco pipe maker

Sorry, I had noticed that Isabella was listed as a widow but misunderstood the first post I thought that 1881 was the only one that you couldn't find Robert.

Hello Irene,

Sorry for getting your name wrong earlier.

I had a look the family on the IGI.
If you post the address where Thomas was born in 1873 I could look that up the next time I'm at 'The Mitchell' although I don't know when that will be.

Some one else might be there earlier than me though.

Regards,
Annette M

Hi Irene,

I entered a 'parent search' on the IGI and that is how I found Thomas.
I shall have a look at Havannah ?Street? when I can.

Have you seen this man on the 1881 census?
Surely he's got to be related!!!
