The Common Room / Re: Robert Boyd 1890

Iíve had a look at death notices in the Glasgow Herald but have drawn a blank. Difficult to know how much after the date of death to look as it may have taken time for the news of his death to filter back.

Robertís army record indicates he was a Chelsea Pensioner with his pension ending at the time of his death. Chelsea Reg number is 195979. Maybe they would have some information on him.

Yes that is the letter, but it is definitely attached to the records for Robert Boyd the son. I wonder if Robert died shortly after arriving in Canada?

His service records are on FindMyPast and seem to show that his wife applied for his medals in 1921 describing him as the Ďlate Robert Boydí. She was living in Lenzie at the time. There is another record which says he died 28th Dec 1920.

From Familysearch, James son of Francis Devine and Margaret Campbell was actually born 10 Aug 1856 ( in Paisley) so was actually 26 ( not 21) when he married Maggie ( who really was only 15 having been born 3/5/1866 in Greenock). Margaretís father was actually Thomas ( not Francis).
can you clarify which line it is you are searching ie James son of William and Catherine ( Corrigan) or James son of Francis and Margaret (Campbell).

Possible death in Bandon Reg district in 1869 for Ellen Leahy age 44 ( corresponds with death of last two children).
John ( b1865) looks to have married Ann Crowley in 1904 (Cork). He was a National Teacher. He died 1918.
Daniel seems also to have been a teacher. Died in 1891 age 21, informant his father Patrick.
William ( twin of David) died in 1890 age 26. Father Patrick was informant.

This looks like Davidís birth - looks like he had a twin called William.
