Hello,

1881
Registration Number: 432
Registration District: Inverkeithing
Civil Parish: Inverkeithing
County: Fife
ED: 2
Household schedule number: 12
Address: Hope Street
Alexander Gilbertson Head 30 Sawyer Annan Dumfriesshire
Euphemia Gilbertson Wife 24 Glasgow
John Gilbertson son 6 Govan Lanark
Marion Gilbertson dau 4 Charlestown Fife

Alexander married in 1873 in Tradeston, Lanark so he should be single in 1871. I can't find a tree so don't know if he'd be in Dumfries or Lanark or Fife.

I'd like a look up please for Alexander in 1871 and 1861.

Thanks,

Dave

I wonder if this is an error. If not then it's coincidence with Anderson on both sides: Marriage for son John has his father's name as Alexander Anderson Gilbertson.

Oh. Thanks Geoff.

Helen Gilbertson 41 [b. Abercorn, sinlithgow]
I am wondering if that is Helen ANDERSON.

One of my Anderson families is from Abercorn - hamlet of Society.

How crazy. :biggrin:

08/10/1837 GILBERTSON JOHN HELEN ANDERSON/FR1252 M Abercorn /WEST LOTHIAN 661/ 0050 0145

John GILBERTSON & Helen ANDERSON
8 Oct 1837 Abercorn, West Lothian, Scotland

So Anderson on both sides. They are cousins of some sort. :D

I'll have to work it out.

I'll have to edit my tree to add Alexander as a son to the John & Helen I have elsewhere in the tree.

We filled in a few gaps with that one, thanks.

Didn't have them in 1861 in Carlisle.

I'll check now I've edited the tree for any other queries.

I have no death for John b. abt 1814

Death 1871 GILBERTSON HELEN ANDERSON F 61 ANNAN /DUMFRIES 812/00 0048

"There is a Helen Anderson Gilbertson that dies in 1871 at Annan Dumfries. She is married to a John and her father's name is Alexander. But he is a tailor ? and not a letter carrier. Her mother's name is Janet Anderson M.S. ...skin. ? [Danskin] Her widower, John was the informant."

Nothing in my tree to say a search was done for John in 1881 but didn't find him.
