Hi Dave,

Not sure about this one. What do you think?

Ellen dau age 12 born Alloa
Marion dau age 10 born Alloa
Cecilia m in law age 75 born Toryburn
Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

I'm 100% sure it's the family I'm after. :D

Spouse is Margaret Watson KELTIE b. 20 Jul 1849 Torryburn (Not sure where the Graham comes in)

Her mother is Cecilia MASTERTON b. 1816 (I didn't know where)

I'm not surprised by the different birth places for the children. I've seen that so often with KELTIE, SANDS, ANDERSON and related families moving between Fife, Clackmannan and W Lothian.


Hello Julie,

I don't have a death for James or Margaret. Cecilia died in 1902.

James was born in Bainsford between Falkirk and Carron.

Please see who remains in 1901. Thanks.

Hello Julie,

Thanks. That's the family. What a mess. :D

Well, Margaret's maiden name was KELTIE. I don't know that all the children had such a middle name. Margaret did get her middle name Watson from her father's mother.
