I know it is a difficult one. I am usually okay at reading these things. Think it is a C and I hadn't considered Cameron. It could be. Will look to see if there are any Camerons in the place she came from -Stobo in Peeblesshire.

Thanks

Barbara

Familysarch has a Hellen Yowng baptised Peebles 4 May 1794 parents John Yowng and Janet Cameron. Stobo is about 5 miles away from Peebles. I know the age is 3 years out but...

Thanks a lot Emeltree. I agree Dave that is it a bit stretched but with the Yowng that Emeltree found it looks right.. SP didn't pick up that one using variations of Young! Back to the good old fiche at the archives for strange spellings.
