Hello,

1851
Civil Parish: Torryburn
County: Fife
Address: Huntey Nyad
RETTIE Adam 1791 age 60 ? [70] Hand Loom Weaver Collon Cubroy, Perthshire [Culross]
KILTIE Margaret 1789 age 62 Weaver Catton Pathhead, Midlothian
From Death Certificate:
Death: 14 Feb 1861; Torryburn, Fife, Scotland; Adam Keltie, weaver, married; age 80 years; parents Adam Keltie, seaman and Elizabeth Keltie M.S. Blair; died from gradual decline from old age; witness James Masterton, neighbour.

I suppose it's possible James also died before the 1861 census on 7 April. I don't know how old that James is but there are two of them so I'm chasing one here. This is the second one, an uncle:

James MASTERTON b. 6 Sep 1808 c. 2 OCT 1808 Torryburn, Fife, Scotland
Adam MASTERTON & Cecil BLACK

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

Well now. :D It's not the one born 1832 son of George. It's the James born 1808 who among other siblings that includes George b. 17 Nov 1806 Torryburn, is a William born 20 Oct 1804 Torryburn.

Regards,

Dave
