Hi elizabethh

Could you tell us a little more of what you already know, and what you'd like to find? So as we don't go looking for what you already have....

For example, do you have him on earlier Census? Do you have their marriage?

Cheers

Good morning-So far I have found Andrew and Janet ms Beveridge on the 1901 census living in Kinross - as the parents of James Beveridge Blackwood ( who eventually became the stationmaster at Galashiels station.  I have on the 91 census a William and Ann Beveridge (ages 65 and 60)- William is recorded as a Saddler - who have living with them a son Andrew age 25 this seems to fit. Further than this I have not got.  Elizabeth.

Hi Elizabeth

Looking at the Census, it would seems very likely the 1891 Andrew BLACKWOOD, Saddler in 1891 age 28 you have will prove to be the correct one. But I don't think William's wife Ann in that Census is Andrew's mother - I think she'sWilliam's 2nd wife.  And that Andrew's  mother was Isabella EDGAR  who appears to have died between 1871 & 1881.

IGI Extracted
BIRTH: Andrew BLACKWOOD - 13 Dec 1862, Kinross
Parents: William BLACKWOOD & Isabella EDGAR

Would you like details posted up of the other  Census 1881 and backwards for the BLACKWOODs etc.


Cheers
