Hi Lisa

Yes I have just checked on Robert's 2x Gr Granddaughter's tree and that is when she died - he than married a 2nd time to an Adelaide Maxwell and had a further 2 children.  Robert died 12 February 1910 and is also buried in Calvary Cemetary.

Thank you very much for the verification of the record

Regards Sarenid

I'm not sure that this is your Rankin, but have you seen the 1861 New Orleans City Directory?  There is a Mrs. Thomas Rankin:

Have you found them in 1860?

Hi Lisa

No I have found no trace in 1861 however I did find that particular reference but with no other details kind of put it to one side until I got more information.  However, as it appears Ann Rankin nee Murphy possibly remarried and moved to Missouri and the last child on baptism records appears to be 1854 - my best guess would be Thomas dying somewhere between 1854/5 and 1861 and Ann Rankin remarrying probably prior to moving to Missouri especially as there appears to be a Charles Williamson 18 Born Louisiana in the family of :

Charles Williamson 30 Born NY. Salesman in paperhouse.
Ann Williamson 42 Born England
Fanny Rankin 16 Born Louisiana
Mary Rankin 15 Born Louisiana
Charles Williamson 18 Born Louisiana

Interestingly Robert Rankin appears from his bio to have started business life in 1870 as a traveling representative of the Johnson and Sawyer Paper Company based in St Louis Missouri.  So the picture begins to fit together.
Many thanks for your help

I am a GG Grandson of Thomas Rankin and Ann Murphy of New Orleans. I have most of the info regarding Thomas Rankins descendants to the present.

I found this in an 1843 American Agriculturist. If someone is related to Thomas Rankin and wants the original, drop me a note.
