Hi Braveheart

As you know on Scotlandspeople you see the records on a pay per view basis.

I found the marriage which I presume is the correct one, as you mention it on24 June 1881. Are you sure that is right ?

As I had some credits, I then viewed the births for John Stewart in the district of Perth.
1 x 1881, 2 x 1882, 2 x 1883,1 x 1884, 1 x 1885 , The reference nos end in0467,0045,0746, 0836, 0670, 0409, 0134.

I have quoted the years and ref.nos so that you don't waste your money.
None of the above matched the names of the marriage

On the marriage cert.Catherine is from Strathbaarn, Millen ? of Kinloch, not all that far away from Little Dunkeld. Do you think she may have gone home to have the baby ?

If you have not got the marriage details , let me know. I think you have some thinking to do, and I hope some credits to spend !!

John Stewart is a very common name !! 200 between 1880 and 1890, that is why I put in Perth for the district.

Good hunting, and do let me know if you find him !!

thank you for the help maddie, I think looking into the stewart family is like looking into a BLACK hole. Anyway I will keep trying and I will let you know if I find the right ones
