Hello,

William MARTIN b. 1872 Ireland

Sarah ROSS b. 1876 Ireland

Daughter Sarah Emily Ross MARTIN b. 1902 St Rollox, Lanark ??

There are 4x Sarah b. 1902 Lanark but not one in St Rollox.

I can't see them together in Ireland in 1901.

I'd like a look up please for William & Sarah assuming they are in Lanark in 1901.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Barbara,

Thank you very much.

2x Sarah born in Ayr in 1902.

This is the tree I'm partly working off - HERE

Probably correct as the tree has a death for William in Irvine. Age a bit out for Sarah and don't know about the birth of daughter Sarah who is in my tree by this marriage:

Alexander SANDS & Sarah MARTIN
marriage: 1921 Blythswood, Lanark

Regards,

Dave

I can't pin down Sarah, b. 1902 - There are 5 in the Glasgow area and 2 in Ayrshire, all possibilities. The census that Barbara found looks good, William may have died in Irvine, Aryshire.

Irvine looks to be only 25 miles or so SW of Glasgow.

Edit, sorry you've got most of that..

Thanks Geoff.

Means I've missed nothing. :)

Too far off my main line to add any to the list next time I get some credits on SP.

It's ok, thanks Geoff. I've seen that tree and the photos.

How many steps off the main line am I allowed? :biggrin:

I have to go back 4 generations from Hazel to get to the fork.
