Hello Chiad,

All I have for David is that he died after 1891. Spouse Elizabeth SANDS b. 23 Aug 1816 c. 1 Sep 1816 Torryburn d. 29 Nov 1872 Dunfermline - parents James & Elisabeth KELTIE.

Marriage 24 Jul 1841 (Elisabeth) Dunfermline. All 8 children of this marriage were given to me by another SANDS family researcher and all were listed as being born in Dunfermline.

I've not checked any of the STEWARTs in SP. I'm down to 3 credits again and must limit my future use of the site. I've spent too much and have some English marriage certificates of GG and GGG grand parents that now have priority for purchase.

Regards,

Dave

Hello juliejtp,

Thank you very much. It looks like the family and I'd say the 1 for Elizabeth is probably a 4. They didn't have twins.

I have found 7 David STEWARTs born in Fife but none in Dunfermline. Information in my database says he died after 1891 and this is a possibility:

David Christie Stewart 1897 age 76 Dunfermline and that would make him about 6 years younger than Elisabeth.

Please see if you can find the family in 1861.

Thanks.

Dave

Hello juliejtp,

NP, I'm sure the keys on my keyboard more around :biggrin:

Thank you very much for that one. I have May as Mary in my tree. I noticed the age of David has changed again so the census are not going to be much help in getting a narrow range for his birth date. Elisabeth is no problem as I have her full birth and baptism dates.

Please see if you can find the family in 1871.

Thanks.

Dave

Hello juliejtp,

Thank you very much. Please see if you can find the family minus spouse Elisabeth in 1881. I have no deaths yet for any of the daughters. So far son William is the only one I know of who did marry.

Thanks.

Dave

Hello juliejtp,

Thank you very much. David, aged 22, I can account for. He is the son of William. David was born on 2 Sep 1868 in Dunfermline. It looks like I'm missing Mary from my tree. The last child I have for William and Jane is Jane born on 25 Jan 1874 in Dunfermline.

I will now search for Mary's birth.

Please see if you can find Euphemia and Catherine/Kate in 1901. Sorry, but I have no idea what grandchildren might be with them. I think David (Sr) died between 1891 and 1901.

Thanks.

Dave

Hello juliejtp,

Thank you very much.

I cannot find in IGI a Mary STEWART born about 1877 at all in Fife let alone with father William or James.

William married Jane HOGGAN on 20 Jun 1862 Dunfermline, Fife and IGI in Batch C114241 has the births of their 5 children including David in 1868. That's a match for the grand son in the 1891 census.

I have no marriage yet for James b. abt 1844 (his birth/baptism can't be found) so at the moment I don't know how grand daughter Mary fits in. James is in the 1871 but not the 1881 census so he may have married. I have found this possible one:

James STEWART Spouse: Margaret REDDIE
Marriage: 1 Dec 1871 Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland
Batch: M114241

and this birth with my last credit of the current batch on SP:

1876 STEWART MARY WILHELMINA F DUNFERMLINE BURGH /FIFE 424/01 0338

I'm going to wait for the reply from Bristol RO re 2 marriages and 4 baptisms before deciding what next to purchase.

Regards,

Dave

Hello juliejtp,

Thank you very much. Currie could be Carrie. But the head of the house should be William. Please see if you can find them in 1881. Thanks. There could be two more children:

George H b. 1872
Jane b. Jan 1874

Regards,

Dave
