Hello Steve,

Thanks. Jane must have died. R= Reid = grandmother's name.

John's parents marriage:

Alexander BAIRD & Christina REID
27 Aug 1841 Glasgow, Lanark, Scotland
Batch: M119754

BAIRD John 28 Smyrna 1883 Sydney and family Reels 2142, 2494
BAIRD Margaret 24 Smyrna 1883 Sydney and family Reels 2142, 2494
BAIRD Christina 1 Smyrna 1883 Sydney and family Reels 2142, 2494
BAIRD Margaret inft Smyrna 1883 Sydney and family Reels 2142, 2494

A daughter born in Sydney married and died in 1965:

Death # 6100/1965 STOWE CATHERINE KEITH SHERIDAN JOHN ORR MARGARET JANE SYDNEY

So we have possible names for John's spouse KEITH and SHERIDAN. :) But I'm getting nowhere. All I can say is that it's more likely to be KEITH and SHERIDAN would be Margaret's mothers name. Margaret's father is listed as Alexander and no mother listed. So possibly Alexander KEITH married a SHERIDAN. :confused: Am I far enough out on a limb yet. :2fun: The other possibility since the informant didn't know Margaret's mothers name is that the Alexander is wrong. (Coincidence being spouse's fathers name).

Regards,

Dave

Hello Steve,

Thanks for looking. Then that is a different John & Margaret BAIRD in 1881. The family I'm looking for left Scotland in 1883.
Shipping record has:

Arrived 29 Sep 1883
John O Tailor Lanark Presby Both
Margaret Inverness Presby Both


Ok, please go backwards looking for a John Orr b. 1854 Glasgow, Lanark to parents Alexander BAIRD & Christina REID.

Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Steve,

Thanks. So he married after the 1881 census. They arrived Sep 1883 with two young daughters.

I can't see the marriage in IGI or the FamilySearch beta site.

I'll have to wait until I have more than one reason to get more credits on SP. :D

Regards,

Dave
