Thanks Ellie but I think Simpson does not fit.

Death 1896 REEKIE MARGARET SWAN F 88 ST GEORGE EDINBURGH CITY/MIDLOTHIAN 685/01 0828


I wonder if Margaret could have been in England with daughter Mary in 1881. ??

FreeBMD gets the middle name right

I can't even find Mary born 1853 Midlothian in Kent in 1881.

And I can't find her second marriage to Robert McNie in 1890.

Is this the right one?

Interesting how the GRO seems to have as many errors as FreeBMD.

Susan 1886 so a death for John Malcolm 1885 - 1890.

There are 26x in Midlothian but as a wild guess

MALCOLM
JOHN
38
1885
047/AF 130

Death 1874 REEKIE DAVID M 70 NEWINGTON EDINBURGH CITY/MIDLOTHIAN 685/05 0740

I just looked at all Margarets born Fife 1808 - 1812 for one who might fit in Newington in 1881 and none.


We have almost nothing on John Malcolm except the names of his children as a clue.

Children
Margaret
Ann
Andrew
David
Johanna/e
Susan

Parents Andrew & Ann ??


I'm off to the local library for the afternoon.

Yes, in case he was in the army.

I can see three baptisms but not John.

Andrew Malcolm
Gender Male
Christening Date 27 Nov 1842
Christening Place CANONGATE, EDINBURGH, MIDLOTHIAN
Father's Name Andrew Malcolm
Mother's Name Margaret Cruickshanks

Andrew is not one of the Malcolms I have already in my tree.
