Re: Help finding death, please? .....

Hi John, Not long after I originally posted this I sent away for the death certificate of Robert Caithness and found out the date of his death, etc, but thanks very much for replying with that info :) I didn't know any information Margaret Whitton's death, so that's a bonus - thanks again! I'm not a...

Hi Steve, I don't know if this will be any help, but if the burial location was in the New Howff then that cemetery unfortunately doesn't exist anymore, so the grave will no longer be there. The 'old' Howff is still there but the New Howff was built over the road from this and a couple of decades or...

Hi Lesley! Unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to get to Glasgow any time soon, but I'll be sure to visit the Mitchell if I do :) I have previously contacted them to see if there's any way to search the Poor Relief records online, as I am pretty sure they would've applied for it, but, as you pr...

Hi Jack! Thank you so much for that :D I had the 1871 census but not the DC. The age is nearly 20 years out (which explains why I couldn't find him - I had allowed for age 40+ and included unrecorded ages in my previous searches, due to getting far too many results searching with no age as his name ...

Hi Ailsa, Thanks for your reply :D Emigration sounds like a possibility, especially seeing as I can't find his sons William and John on the censuses either. I have tried looking for him on US censuses, that I can get access to, but so far have had no luck. I have looked at ship lists in the past but...

The elusive James Gallacher

Hello all! For years now I have been struggling with the Gallacher line of my family tree and have had very little progress. I have written posts on here about this family in the past and had some help for which I am very grateful! I wonder if a fresh pair of eyes could help me with this problem? I ...

Hi Annette, Helen/Ellen died in Glasgow, either at 57 or 59 New Vennel. It looks like 57 but it could be a mistake as the 1861 census, etc, has them at number 59. I also thought James could have remarried, but so far haven't confirmed this, although it's another thing I'm looking into. If he did rem...

Just thought I'd add a bit to this thread, in case anyone is still following it, as I have found Ellen's death (under Helen, age unrecorded in the index) in 1865, which explains why I couldn't find her in the 1871 census. I know James lived until at least 1873 but I still can't find him, although I'...
