My names is Jeanette and I am looking for two ancestors. First of all it’s my g grandad he was called
Frank Gordon
B: abt 1875 Ochiltree, Ayrshire, Scotland
D: Scotland he married to
Martha Guthrie
B: abt 1878 Ayrshire, Dailly
D: 5 Aug 1951 Kirkconnel, Dumfries-shire, Scotland
it’s says his mum was
Mary Montgomerie
B: abt 1882 Girvan, Ayr
and stepfather
Francis Montgomerie
B: abt 1876 Girvan, Ayrshire I was just wondering if he was his real dad and took his mother’s name as I don’t think they were married at that point but the rest of the kids were montgomerie. Or he had a completely different dad and if so does anyone else know how I can find out. Thanks
Next one is my other g grandads family he was
John George Heron
B: 04 Jan 1876 Fyzabad, Andhra Pradesh, India
D: 12 Aug 1942 Glasgow he married
Agnes Arrol
B: 15 Sep 1881 Dennistoun, Lanarkshire, Scotland
D: 20 Jan 1949 Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland
His father was
John Heron
B: abt 1844 Ireland he was in the army with his wife ( I think her name was Mary Ann smith born in England around 1844) hence the reason some of his kids were born in India some in Scotland but I have nothing after that I was wondering if someone recognised this as I can’t seem to get past these two thanks again
