Hello Julie,

Thanks.

I had no luck so I'll see where that one takes me.

Alexander is 20 and a son is aged 11. :D Must be 11 months.

The only info I have re location in Peebles is 'Noblehouse' on a shipping record.

And I'll start searching for Margaret's death.

Putting 'Walkingshaw' in for other surname gets no hits.

Regards,

Dave
