I've been trying to find possible siblings of William KERR b. abt 1812 Rutherglen (Age 25 in 1841). I can't find William's death so I don't have his parents.

Piece: SCT1841/654 Place: Rutherglen -Lanarkshire Enumeration District: 4
Civil Parish: Rutherglen Ecclesiastical Parish, Village or Island: -
Folio: 4 Page: 11

KERR Mary F 13 Lanarkshire
KERR Thomas M 10 Lanarkshire
James ROSS & Marian KERR
Marriage: 3 Jun 1842 Rutherglen, Lanark

KERR Robert Lodger U M 27 Calico Printer Lanarkshire - Rutherglen
KERR Thomas Lodger U M 21 Stone Mason Lanarkshire - Rutherglen

Janet MURRAY b. 27 Feb 1845 Rutherglen, Lanark
- parents Alexander MURRAY & Elizabeth KERR - private IGI

Marriage 30 Apr 1830 Barony, Lanark

That would make Elizabeth about the same age as William assuming they are siblings.

Elizabeth KERR b. 3 May 1809 Rutherglen, Lanark
- parents Robert KERR & Jean WILLIAMSON - private IGI

William KERR b. 17 Dec 1811 c. 29 Dec 1811 Rutherglen, Lanark
- parents Robert KERR & Jean WILLIAMSON - private IGI

Also entries for 1812. Hmmmmm... :) Are they guessing. ???


I'm wondering who should be traced. I could be barking up the wrong tree. :D
