Looking for Charles in 1861. Ann/Anne may have died by 1861 although so far I can't find her death. Maiden name Halliday and 1st married name Kirk.

Thanks,

Thanks Geoff.

Probably the right one with age out.

David's arrival not found.

JOHNSTONE John, Grenfell, residence

John is a mystery as David didn't have a brother John. Not his father so related or not ??

John in 1878 can't be David's son as David married in 1878 in Grenfell.

Found a few trees, none have David out of Scotland/England.. 2x have his death as 1935, not validated. So no pointers there at all?

Thanks Geoff.

I have the right David and the right marriage to Clara and the right death.

Brother Joseph ended up in Canada and one researcher has letter David wrote to family in Canada.

Dave
 
Yeah, not disputing David in Oz, just found it strange that other researchers from the 5 trees I found had him ending up in Carlisle :eek:
