1871
Registration Number: 698B
Registration District: Stobhill
Civil Parish: Stobhill
County: Midlothian
WEST Joseph Head 65 Shoemaker Temple, Edinburgh
WEST Hellen Wife 63 Cavron Crae Carron, Stirlingshire


I can't find a birth/baptism 1801 - 1809 for Helen/Hellen/Ellen nee Ferguson in Stirling on SP.

Death 1878 WEST Helen (FERGUSON) Stobhill, Midlothian Age 74


Looking for another Joseph WEST in 1871 who would fit this death:

Page 34
1879 DEATHS in the Parish of Dalkeith in the County of Edinburgh
No. 101 - Joseph West Pauper - 1879 August Eighteenth 1 h 0m A.M. Union Poor House Dalkeith - M - 75 years - Parentage unknown - Chronic Bronchitis 2 years as Cert by Alex Ballantyne M.D. Dalkeith - Robert Trotter House Governor - 1879 August 19th at Dalkeith J. B. Dyer Registrar


I have 2 credits left. :biggrin:
