Lanarkshire / Re: What happened to Donald Colquhoun

I did check the immigration to Australia.  This is not the same Donald. It shows his father as Duncan and that he was from Argyll.

Lanarkshire / What happened to Donald Colquhoun
« on: Tuesday 01 May 18 19:25 BST (UK)  »
Looking for information on Donald Colquhoun born in 1826 to Angus Colquhoun and Katherine McIntyre in Cardross.  All other siblings born in Glasgow, and Donald married Mary Peden in 1852 in Glasgow, so assuming he grew up in Glasgow.  He had a daughter, Elizabeth, born in 1852 also in Glasgow.  His wife Mary died in 1853 in Glasgow, and daughter shows up in the 1861 census living with maternal grandparents.  I have found no other information on Donald.  Any additional information regarding Donald Colquhoun or his daughter, Elizabeth Colquhoun is appreciated.

Stirlingshire / Re: Elisabeth Ewing, late 1700's in Balfron area

This is very strange.  I wonder if Alexander and Andrew are the same person (maybe Andrew was a middle name?) listed separately with the same birth date .  As James and Thomas both show the same birth date Aug 5, 1819.  I have the death cert from Peter Edmond in 1859, son of Thomas and Elisabeth Ewing.  (My 3x grt. grandfather)  It shows his father as James and mother as Elisabeth Ewing.  Now I wonder if his father was Thomas James Edmond and went by James.  Not sure how we could ever prove this.

Ev

Can you share the other people listed on the 1841 census with Alexander Edmond?  Also can anyone confirm Andrew Edmond, or is it possible his entry on ancestry is a mistake, or was he possibly twin to Alexander?

Yes - This is him.  He was married to Catherine Ross and Helen Spence, and was listed as a shoemaker on his death cert.

There is an index on Ancestry.com for both Andrew Edmond and Alexander Edmond DOB Jan 24, 1828 Associate Session Balfron parents Thomas Edmond and Elisabeth Ewen.  Alexander Edmond died on June 1, 1893 in Fintry.  Death certificate lists parents as Thomas Edmond and Elisabeth Ewing.

Thanks - I have also learned from a death certificate that Elizabeth and Thomas Edmond had a son, Alexander born in 1828 in Fintry.  He died in 1893 in Fintry. I believe he may have been a twin (also show Andrew born Jan 1828), but can find no additional info on Andrew

Looking for additional information on Elisabeth Ewing.  Elisabeth married Thomas Edmond in 1809 in Balfron.  I have confirmation of 2 children Jean in 1810 and Peter in 1813.  Looking for additional information about her.  When and where was she born?  Did she have additional children? Who were her parents?  Thanks for any help.

I know for a fact that Peter Edmond is my great grandfather.  His death certificate from 1908 shows that he was 50 when he died.  His marriage certificate from 1879 shows he was 24. It also states that his parents are Peter Edmond and Helen Davie.  So there is a question of his birth, between 1855 and 1858, however, based on these facts and that I have an aunt named Helen Davie Edmond, I know this is the correct person.
