Civil Parish: Greenock West

I'm not sure if Jane is an error for Elizabeth or if John remarried between 1841 and 1851. From an 1856 marriage Elizabeth is deceased.

I'd like a look up please for John and family in 1861.

Thanks,

Dave

If we stay in Rehfrew then this one:

John Barbour
Spouse's Name: Jean Galston
Event Date: 13 Nov 1847
Event Place: Lochwinnoch, Renfrew
Batch: M115705

If Lanark:

John Barbar
Spouse's Name: Janet Black
Event Date: 18 Feb 1849
Event Place: Gorbals, Lanark
Batch: M119357


Elizabeth Black
Birth Date: 7 Jan 1850
Birthplace: WEST OR OLD PARISH, GREENOCK, RENFREW
Father's Name: James Black
Mother's Name: Mary Barbour
Batch: C119578

I can't find the marriage of James to Mary 1841 - 1854 in Renfrew or Lanark.

So, a death for Elizabeth 1841 - 1856 and a death for Jane 1851 - 1861.

Can't find a death/burial for Elizabeth.


Death 1860 BARBOUR Jane ( ? ) Greenock, Renfrew Age ?

Other name not BLACK or GALSTON or ARROL or SHEARER or BAIRD or STEWART.

Don't know Jane's maiden name and can't find the marriage.

John Barbour
Christening Date: 17 Nov 1793
Christening Place: HOUSTON AND KILLELLAN,Renfrew
Father's Name: Archibald Barbour
Mother's Name: Mary Douglas
Batch: C115652

John's age is a bit short in 1861. Perhaps 61 should be 67.

Death 1875 BARBOUR John - Greenock, Renfrew Age 83

I'd like a look up please for John in 1871.

Thanks,

Dave

I think you're right, Dave..
1851
John Barbour 55

All other details appear to be the same.

Thanks Geoff.

I couldn't find a second marriage. That means a death for Elizabeth 1851 - 1856, but no sign so probably before 1855.


No luck at the library with any of the baptisms where we tried to guess the volume for either CofE or Presbyterian.
