Hi all, I spoke to my friend once again, she is exhausted. One of the woman that works for her is leaving for Australia. So now she is short staffed with others been sick or fired. So now she is doing the work of the others as well as her own and still trying to do the admin. As a government approved facility she has to write up reports for them on top of everything else.

I will be seeing her this weekend to discus making Christmas pageant costumes, the children are going to put on a show for their parents.  I asked her please let us order the certificate quickly before starting anything else. 

Lets hope it will finally be done.   

And she thanks you all for your hard work. But cannot add any more info to what we already have.

I must say thank you to you all for all your hard work in helping me with this family. I am sorry it is taking so long to come up with the certificate that will finally tell us all that you all are on the right path. What can I say, except that my friend is a very busy woman. Hope she gets it before Christmas this year !

Thanks again

You mentioned George Ogilive Ross being in the printing office, what is interesting is James and Isabella Ross's son Robert McMillan Ross married Margaret Solomon the sister of Saul Solomon who was in the newspaper printing business.

So George Ogilive Ross married a Dutch girl. Dorothea Catharina Steyn. All their children were baptized in the Dutch reformed church. the first 3 children of 7 died as infants.

Will look at the others of the same time period. Thanks

That is what I was thinking,  John and Alexander and Mary Helen were the one's to look at first.

I did come across this for Isabella 

Scotland Births and Baptisms
Name    -Isabel Lamont
Gender   Female
Christening  -Date   06 Dec 1778
Christening Place   , RUTHERGLEN, LANARK, SCOTLAND
Birth Date    -26 Nov 1778
Father's Name    -John Lamont

Mother's Name   Helen Armour


I looked up Rutherglen and it is a small town near Glasgow, so this could be a possibility but the birth date does not match with that of her death record. Which works out to 1781

There were no sponsors or witnesses for any of the children.

What do you think Monica, when you look at the names of the children you do you think would most likely be James parents name and Isabella's

This is James and Isabella's marriage affidavit. Among the witnesses on the bottom left I see a Ross can you make out it out?
