Hi Steve
My grandfather was a policeman as per the 1911 English census and their marriage cert.
I am now beginning to go back to my original guess of Jeannie b about1879 in Inverwick
The 1901 Scottish census was on 31March/1April. What if her birthday was say Jan, Feb. or early March she would have been 21 born in 1880.Does that make sense or am I clutching at straws.

Hello Alan

Please re-read reply 13.  There are only 2 possibilities for a birth between 1878 and 1881 in all of Perthshire - and only 1 with a father John. 

The Jean/Jane/Jeannie - born in Inverwick - with a father John was born in 1875.

Regards,

Steve.

1901 to 1920 there are only 2 Jean Forbes marriages - I feel that the second may be the one born in 1878.

1919 MACDONALD HUGH FORBES JEAN BLAIR ATHOLL /PERTH 334/00 0003   
1904 GOWANS DUNCAN STEWART FORBES JEANIE MOULIN /PERTH 384/01 0004

and did Janet B Forbes - b. 1880 -with a father John marry in 1906

1906 LAWSON PETER FORBES JANET B PERTH /PERTH 387/00 0022


Do the Salvation Army hold records that far back?

Gday Steve
Just had some mail from the General Registers Office.Seemingly they sent me the wrong marriage cert for Jeannie. This one states married Oct.25 1908 at
Holy Trinity Church Lincolnshire Glossop,age 28 spinster Salvation Army Officer. Father John Forbes (deceased).
Alan

Looks like Steve has covered the marriages of the Jean/Jeannie/Janets found at Scotland in 1901. Good thinking!

So the next question is ....what did Jeannie give as her father's occupation and who witnessed the marriage?

One more- what were Fred's parents names?

Regards,
Nel

Just to remind folks that Kilmadock is a parish in Perthshire not one place. It takes in the communitys of Doune, Deanston, Buchany and a couple of smaller hamlets.
Although there was a small group of houses in the parish near the river Teith called Old Kilmadock.

I have now joined in, on this great work by the people helping Alan. 

I will be able to go a little deeper into the Forbes/McKercher connection back in Glen Lyon. The parents of Catherine McKercher (Mrs. John Fobes) will be James McKercher and Catherine McKay (m. 12 May 1839 Fortingall and Weem - same day);  however, Scotslandspeople failed to show up the marriage entry for me. It did however, provide me with her grandparents John McKercher and Margaret Campbell (m. 17 May 1783 - both Fortingall and Weem).

In the meantime, I am working on Catherine's grand dad  possibily being in  the Kerrowmore Grave Site:
#36 John McKerchar late farmer Tiray 17.4.1835  89, s Donald 17.9.1814 28, da Eliz 24.2.1846 52
as Catherine's brother Peter McKercher will be the site next to this:
#35 Peter McKerchar  in Dalchiarich 6.11.1915, w. [wife] Betsy Ritchie 27.2.1942, s. [son\ 16.10.1887 inf [infant]

I know where Tiray/Tiray is, and I can trace three of Catherine's uncles/aunty there as well, but, and finally my seeking of assistance:

Where would Yuar farm,  Kenmore be?  I can see Catherine's uncles and the Aunty Elizabeth are there in 1841 before the men moved to Tirai (1851/1861),  I Imagine to take over their dad's tenament/farm!

Keith

Hi Keith,

Yuar is most likely a typo.  It probably is Tirai.

I have indexed the entirety of Mckercher's up to 1900 or so, and I am currently relating families.

Please visit mckercher.org to query.  I have mapped out the locations detailed in the parish records.

If you have any additions, corrections or contributions, don't hesitate to follow up.


Cheers,

Kori
