Thanks Barbara.

I have nothing on Adam after 1871. I don't know yet if Campbell family have any connection. Quite a change of occupation for Adam.

One sister died young and unmarried. Two other sisters married - Dewar and Grainger. No other sisters.

Try for 1891 thanks.

I'm not logging on to SP until the site pases the test for Heartbleed security bug.
Stop searching. :biggrin:

If a tree is correct he married in Glasgow in 1887, spouse unknown and died in New York in 1900.

Shipping record for 1888. The rest of the tree won't load.

I can't find him in the 1900 census.

I can't find his death in New York Deaths and Burials, 1795-1952.

No marriage on FS for 1887.

Two brothers also not found in Scotland in later years. Don't know yet if they died or migrated or remained in Scotland but not found in census.

The tree is still trying to display the family members. Must be an error in the upload that stops it showing. So no further help from that tree re brothers.

I'd like a look up please for Amos and William in 1871.
Sorry can't find either of them, and can't find anybody on FMP any longer.

Even when I know they are there!
Thanks Barbara.

Second time around and same result so I'll mark my tree for now as 'not found' for those years.

I'm working my way from 'Z' to 'A' and we are at 'K' now. :)

Hi there,

I am new to the community, but have an interest in this family too. You may have this info, but thought I would post this to help

Adam Keltie
Born - 17th Feb 1857
Christened - 5th March 1857
Address - West Vennel, Alloa, Clackmannanshire, Scotland

Adam was Born two days after the death of his father, James and christened two days after the death of his eldest brother, also named Adam.

He married - Jane Oliver on the 24 Jun 1887 who was of 58 Campbellfield Street, Glasgow, Scotland

They then moved to New York in the summer of 1889

The children they had were
1. KELTIE James - Born 14 Sep 1888, Springburn Road, Glasgow, Scotland
2. KELTIE William - born Sep 1889, Brooklyn, New York, USA
3. KELTIE Adam, born May 1892
4. KELTIE Robert - born Oct 1894, Brooklyn, New York, USA
5. KELTIE John - born 11 Mar 1899, Brooklyn, New York, USA

I am not to sure yet what happened to Adam after moving to the states, although I understand he died in 1900, but by the 1900 census in the states Jane Keltie (nee oliver) was registered as being a resident of Long Island College Hospital, 5th Avenue, New York, USA

The children James, William, Adam, and Robert were registered at Orphan Asylum Society, 1923-35 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, USA. While the youngest child John Keltie was registered at Brooklyn Nursery Infant Hospital, New York, USA.

I am unsure of what happened to the rest of the children, but the youngest, John Keltie, went on to live at 642 Wilson Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, USA and married a Emma Stites on the 7 Dec 1921 Brooklyn, New York, USA

Hope this helps fill in some gaps. I have a lot of original documents and photos handed down our family line for the Masterson's, Keltie's , Cauldwell's and Gourlay's all associated with this line and I am happy to share if I can help anyone.
Hello Katken,

Many thanks for that info. I'll check it against my tree this weekend. I'm sure to have a few queries you might be able to fill.
