Hello,

James Porteous

I can't find the marriage 1875-1876 for James & Jane ARROL/ARROLL

Jane's parents James & Jean.

Children:
John f f ?
James m f - ok
Alex
Andrew
George
Jane m m - ok
Helen f m ?
William
Robert
Mary

Naming pattern would suggest John & Helen but I need more than that. :)

James died after 1901. Jane died in 1917 at Grangemouth but I don't have a copy of the death certificate.

there's the marriage Dave, just need your credits

Thanks Barbara.

Next month probably for the next batch of credits.

At least ARROL was not EARL as it was in one census. :rolleyes:

There is a tree that has parents as John & Helen. No sign of Peter or Veronica as one of the children. Robert is too far down the list.

I'll have to get a copy of Jane's death certificate and see if James had died by 29 June 1917.

Married at 96 Regent Terrace, Glasgow according to the tree.

I have the 1901 census.
