William McKenzie Avoch and sister Janet
« on: Saturday 25 September 10 17:33 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find out what happened to my GT Grandfathers brother William and his sister Janet bc 1851.

He was born on 26/1857 in Avoch

His parents were Janet Gray and Alexander McKenzie (labourer)

I think I found William in the 1861 census with his mother and sister at Dock His mum is recorded as being a Quarriers wife. There is no trace of Alexander or my grt grandfather Donald (have Alexander, Janet and Donalds death certs They all died in Aberdeen).

Then I am stuck. Can anyone find William or his sister Janet on any further census

Hi Higgsy was the family Catholics ?

There is a death for a William Mckenzie
Birth date 26/8/1857 Scotland
Death date 17/11/1909
Red Bluff Tehama Co California
Father Alexander McKenzie
Mother Nelly Gray

Burial date 9/11/1909 ( think the dates are transcribed wrong )
Catholic Cemetery

Tree on Ancestry has this William McKenzie

Have looked on Family Search and it states he was a stone cutter. Both my grit grandfather Donald And grit grt grandfather Alexander worked in the Quarries So it could fit.

But as far as I know they were not Catholic

If you search www.familysearch.org you will see the death details and also 1900 census with his wife Ellen/Helen B

Have looked at the tree on Ancestry and they have Williams father dying in New Zealand but I know for a fact that my Alexander  and his wife died in Aberdeen and are buried in Newhills cemetry.

They have attached the same census that I thought were my William

My grt grt grandfather was from Avoch as far as I am aware as my mum used to tell me that my grandmother visited there.

My mum was not aware of any other children
