Seeking a request from the 1891 census in West Lothian (likely) for William Fell and wife Mary. William was born 1841, Mary abt 1844. In 1891 could have children Marion, William, Coledon, and James living with them.

Many thanks,

Could Richard born abt 1879 be Colden as they have the same year of birth?
as there is no Richard with the family on the 1881 census.

Julie,

You've got to be right -- that's the only math that makes sense. He had an uncle Richard Coldon (or something similar) who died in 1861. His father William must have named him R C after his own brother.

Thanks for the 1891 data.

Bruce
