McCallum Family of Rothesay/Kingarth area
« on: Tuesday 05 June 12 23:34 BST (UK) »
Hi all. Looking for any death/burial or marriage records for the following people:  James McCallum, b. 1811 in Rothesay - was around in Buteshire up to 1861 then disappeared.
Hugh McCallum, b. 1813 in Rothesay, no record any where in Scotland.
John McCallum, b. 1824 Kingarth, located in 1841 and maybe in 1851 in Buteshire as a servant but then nothing.
Isobel McCallum, b. 1821,Kingarth, located in 1841 and 1851 in Buteshire but then disappeared.
Archibald McCallum, b. 1827 Kingarth, located in 1841 in Buteshire and 1851 in Ayrshire then nothing.
Lastly, Elizabeth McCallum, b. 1834 Kingarth, located only in 1841 and nothing in 1851 onwards.

I thought that either these people died early or had moved overseas. Any assistance is gratefully appreciated.
