Thanks Barbara.

He started off as a weaver. ;)

Spouse Elizabeth's maiden name was ... yes, Campbell.

Please see if you can find them in 1891 and 1901. And then I'll search for a death for John to add to my list.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much.

Back to being a Sinsmith. :D Age 12 instead of 72. At least we had Grace to help.

I'll look for a death for John & Elizabeth later today.

Regards,

Dave

Where would a retired tinsmith go to live after living 95% of his life in Largs?

Possibles
Death 1906 John WYLLIE Troon, Ayr b. 1827 +/- 2

Death 1910 John WYLLIE Kilmarnock, Ayr b. 1827 +/-3

No sign of a death in Largs that fits. Found a John WILSON b. abt 1827 who died after 1901.

My John:

John WYLLIE b. 29 Apr 1827 c. 6 May 1827 Largs, Ayr
- parents James WYLLIE & Janet LADE


This could be the Kilmarnock one:

John Wyllie
Scotland Births and Baptisms, 1564-1950
birth: 20 Dec 1828 KILMARNOCK,​AYR,​SCOTLAND
residence: 1828 Ayr,​ Scotland
parents: David Wyllie,​ Agnes Gemmill


There are 7 others born in Ayr, but none in Troon 1827 +/- 2 :D

So far I can't explain the 1906 death in Troon.

I have 12 on my list for SP and can only do 10 so I'll have to skip the Troon one.
