Hello Julie,

Thank you very much.

Now, It's James HUTCHISON I wanted in London Road. :2fun: We still have not found the right James.

Please see if you can find the HOUSTON family in 1901. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

Thanks. Yes, looks like it.

I'll search for a death for spouse Jane later today.

And I'll search for a death for Sarah later today. I should be able to find her knowing her full maiden name and dob:

Sarah Nicol ANGEL b. 14 Jul 1822.

I think it's too early in the morning. :D

Regards,

Dave

Hello Julie,

Thanks. That is unusual but handy having four sons as hairdressers. :D

I probably lost you with Sarah. That's the mother of Thomas senior.

Regards,

Dave

Thats ok Dave I'm normally confused most of the time :).

I've no luck with Thomas, Jane and young Thomas. The Sarah Musgrove may be sister Sarah as her year of birth is abt 1873, place born Paisley.

Hello Julie,

Thanks for looking. The ANGEL name is very rare in Scotland being virtually just one family started by a soldier (my Gx3 grandfather) from Devon who was posted in Paisley and married there. So I can be sure that is Sarah's death.

A nephew was born in Dunbarton:

Samuel Dow ANGEL b. 27 Oct 1860 Old Kilpatrick, Dunbarton

1881
Name: Samuel Angel
Age: 20
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1861
Relationship: Son
Father's Name: Thomas
Mother's Name: Helen
Gender: Male
Where born: Bowling, Dumbartonshire
Samuel has not been found in census after 1881.

Samuel Dow ANGEL & Agnes MUNRO
Marriage 1888 Blythswood, Lanark

Death 1904 Agnes ANGEL [ ? ] Kelvin, Lanark Age 50 ??

It's possible Samuel took a slow boat to Argentina with his brother Stephen Gifford ANGEL. Stephen seems to vanish after the birth of a son in 1888.

Arthur ANGEL b. 2 Jul 1888 Bothwell, Lanark

Stephen Gifford ANGEL & Jeanie CALDER
Marriage 1878 Maryhill, Lanark

Regards,

Dave
