Christening Place: DUNDONALD, AYR
Birth Date: 04 Jul 1814
Father's Name: Robert Reid
Mother's Name: Catherine Johnstone

So do we have 2x Robert, one married to Catherine and the other to a Margaret JOHNSTONE?

Girvan may or may not be the right one.


I think we wait for the shipping reel.

Thanks Geoff.

Post #22 and post #24

If that is Isabella in 1851 with grandparents then how do we sort out Catherine and Margaret JOHNSTONE??

If daughter Catherine is a sister of James then they have different mothers?

Some trees say yes (not validated), others don't know, those that say yes point to 27 Oct 1809 Glasgow, Margaret Johnstone.

Geoff

Marriage Date: 27 Oct 1809
Marriage Place: Glasgow,Lanark,Scotland
Spouse: Margaret Ewing
FHL Film Number: 1042935, 1042937, 1042937
